    folks i ask for very little for myself,i am comfortable with my beleifs in our maker and hope when the time comes i am judged to be a good man.what i ask for now is not for me but for my only true love.her name is becky and she has fought cancer and won twice now.the cancers she had were two different kinds at two different places.imagine my happiness when she was declaired cancer free.well its been a year or so and she is down to about 69 pounds,it seems in beating the cancer the treatment is killing her.she must swallow her food three or four times before getting it down.the doctors say that because of scar tissue nothing can be done.the scar tissue makes it almost impossible to swallow and very difficult to breath.im not ready to lose her yet and i beg for your prayers,try thinking of losing the one you love an ounce at a time and nothing you can do about it.well im done now so please keep her in your prayers.if ever there was a good person and did not deserve to die it her.thank you and god bless. old semperfi-michael

    Heavenly Father, we come before you this morning upholding Becky.
    You have intervened twice with healing the cancers that she has had, Father, and we thank you for that.
    But now, Lord, there is a complication that these cancers caused while she had them, and this complication is threatening her life.
    The Doctors say there is nothing they can do, but Lord we know that You overrule all doctors, for you are the Great Physician.
    We ask that you would place your hand on this woman and bring a complete healing to her from this. We ask that you would soften and stretch this scar tissue that is causing her to have so much trouble eating, and causing such a drastic weight loss.
    We ask that you would allow her to take in the right amount of nutrition, and that her weight loss would reverse to restore her to a healthier condition.
    And we ask that you would be with Michael at this time also, Father, to strengthen him as he suffers through this. Give him assurance, Lord, that you are in charge of this, as well as all things.
    Be with all of Becky's family and friends, Father, letting each one know that you are there with them during this - and all - of liefs trials.

    And we ask all of this in the holy name of Jesus, the Christ - the Rose of Sharon -

    Amen -

    Semperfi, is there any way she can be fed through a tube? I know it may feel degrading, but it helped mom for a while, and also for dad.

    Amen .
    Micheal adding Becky and yourself and yours to our list here

    i know the story of beating the cancer but still trying to survive the treatments too well

    simple foods nutritious soups scar healing herbs CAN work appetite stimulants as well ( plant based ) and exercise ( may seem like torture but its needed ) Good Lord gave us all we need to heal , the knowledge aint all lost , Prayers are part but medicine is too

    if you wish info PM and i'll plaster you with all i have ..
