Hi all. You all know me well enough by now to (hopefully) know where I stand on religious views (I never do like that word religious). :) Anyways....for all my friends on the board who would like to be added to a "task prayer event" please just post the name of the person you would like prayed for down at the bottom and the physical need. You can be as specific as you would like, or just post in general (example: "H&N Cancer, spread to liver, request healing" or "post treatment, pain and fatigue is high, request strength") etc., etc. The goal is to "post the names and request" on a wall in a room and to pray EVERYDAY (one time every 24 hours) and fast one time per week (Wednesday for our team) for the need / request. May have as many as 1 - 3 persons on the "prayer task team" at first, but it may grow to more. The information will not be posted anywhere else online (except for this message thread) and the "prayer task room". For those who do not subscribe to praying to or belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, please do feel free to send us positive thoughts and well wishes. Of course we invite everone to add their name and request, but we also understand not all people subscribe to this belief. This thread is NOT meant to offend, just another way of reaching out and offering help to all of us who have been through this mean disease called Oral Cancer. The "task praying" will begin Wednesday July 18th and will continue until discontinued notice sent. The goal is to keep it going. Ahy person who would like to join at part of the prayer team may send me a private message or just post you will be on the "team" so that I can know you too are praying / fasting. Fasting schedules I realize may be different due to medical or work schedules, but the goal is to fast at minimum 1 time per week for those on the list. Best, Tim Matthew 7: 7-11 New Living Translation 7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

I would appreciate any and all good thoughts for my dad and his medical team. He's 94, 10 years cancer-free, but now, it's back. 2nd recurrence. SCC floor of mouth. PET scan today. Please don't let the age fool you...he's not ready "to go" and I'm not ready to be without the strongest man in my life.

A few prayers never hurt anybody! Thanks for listening...

Sorry so long to resond...I declare I don't check my board for 2 days and you all show up :) Just kidding of course. Delighted to have you on the list, sorry for the delay. I will be travleing to Las Vegas with the company I work for Dec. 3 - 7 so I may not chekc the board daily ...but I will be praying!!

Nelson: Work tranistion goes well, keeps track well of meds and excels at work with no problems, strength.

Kim: Bleesings for being such a great caregiver, peace of mind and strength to trust in the Lord all goes well. (I know it's easier said or prayed for then done).

Vee's Dad: strength,healing, wisdom for him, family, doctors to ensure best decisions. Peace in heart and mind.

Vee: Srength, wisdom to best help Dad as he moves thru this time in his life. Blessings on you for the love and care you have shown to your Dad, and continued comfort, faith all will be well.

I'm sorry you all have to be on this board. I pray we all are off one day (that may sound so silly to some I know, but the world itself is a miracle in all it's wonders and if He can create this masterpiece...is there really nothing he can't do?) :)

Best,

Tim

Tim thank you for all you do on this site. You truly do God's work by giving all of us on this site a little heaven sent TLC every time you are here. And, for that I am grateful this morning.

I will not give up, I will not give in ....all on this list are still prayed for ...and I also include folks suhc as Mike (Luv4lacrosse) ..Barefoot Bob, Nick777, Roxanne Jacobs... ...

 

My online family is special to me.....by no means am I the strongest in faith at times or best person to be praying (amd I am sure to tell the good Lord that) ...but I care about my online family and I believe he knows that and that's what is most important!  I also believe the very act of bringing up needs / requests in prayer on a daily basis shows perseverence and desire ...and all H&N folks certainly can relate to that!! :)

Best to you all ...

Hello Everyone,

 

 I am brand new to this site.  My mother just had tongue surgery and is actually still in ICU and has been there for a week.  She is 73 and we were told that although her lymph nodes were clear, that she still would need radiation in a few weeks.  I am going to question the doctor again about why this is, but my mother has a hard struggle ahead of her and any well wishes and prayers for her recovery and strength through the next few months would be greatly appreciated.  This site has been a wealth of information and I am going to sign my mother up and help give her the support she is going to need.  Thank you.

You are on :)

I'm sorry it's been rough, there's no way around it, it is rough.  I finished my last tx Jan 2012 and I had my feeding tube removed in June 2012....I sure did miss food.  You will get there.

 

Cindy:  Continued clear scans for MANY, MANY years.

            Food taste and eating will return fully and soon.

 

Best,

Tim

Hi Tim,

Having personally seen what prayer and positive thoughts can do, most definitely please add me to that list. I will keep all those on the boards here in my prayers as well.

Welcome...and thank you so very much for sharing your personal experience....it came at a time when I could use the support.  A dear friend of mine Roxanne Jacobs (on a fb forum for H&N) has found out she has cancer again.  I was hurt by the news of course, but I told her we will not give up or give in...she too is a prayer :)

So listed as "T" / fishman:  Continued healing / well being and physical /spiritual blessings. Strength in body and spirit.

If you have something specific,  or if I missed something, let me know.

Best to you my friend...

Tim

I haven't been on much in the past few months, this third trip on the bus has really wiped me out.  I just finished radiation on Tuesday and chemo last week.  I know I have a few weeks but so ready for the healing to begin.

Just finished treatment for the third time since Auugust 2010, need to put some weight back on, regain energy, get diabetes under control and learn to live with one eye.

Thank you for organizing prayer warriors.

Bev,

So sorry you have been through so much.  Sure wish it was not so.  I remember reading your posts and seeing (I think your daughter) posting for you on updates.  You absolutely amaze me with your attitude to fight.

I have you down:

Bev:  Speedy recover, no more trips on this "c" bus, weight gain and energy physically.

Bless you Bev ...hugs and admiration from this warrior private to you, a General in this war.

Tim, please add me to your prayer list.  i had a complete laryngectomy a year ago and still have a hard time accepting it.  i'm thankful to be cancer free but hate this trake.  please don't think i'm ungrateful b/c i truly am.  i just had no warning how hard it was going to be living with a trake.  i recently had surgery on my neck again due to a previous surgery.  it is healing nicely.  please pray for my faith to stay strong as i continue this journey.  i do love God and thank him everyday for all he has blessed me with.  i am truly a blessed person and i know this and have for many many years.  anyway, i'd love to be on your prayer list.

Thank u 4 doing all you do and thank you for your words of encouragement.  thank you for caring enuf to start a prayers list!!  thank you for being a speaker for God.

God bless,

Please add my husband and myself to the prayer list. We believe in the power of positive prayer for physical and spiritual healing. 

Ruben will begin chemo and radiation on Monday, April 22nd. He had his tonsils removed last month, which was the primary source, and has a left neck node that is the target of radiation and dhemo. His treatment is being provided by the Veterans Administration, Long Beach, CA and our prayer is for God to watch over and guide those who are involved in his care and treatment, and to bring him no harm.

Thank you for offering to pray for everyone. Everytime I read a post, my heart and spirit automatically speaks a prayer. It's comforting to know people are praying for one another.

God's Blessings.  Jude

Tim,

Been meaning to update you on Jim's matastic lung cancer. Jim has a CT of lungs tomorrow, Monday and will get results on Wednesday. He has no symptoms of lung cancer so doc wants to see what is going on. I tell him it is prayer but he just kind of shes it aside. We are praying for an opportunity to witness to him and others about our AWESOME God and Savior.

Hi to my online family. Just bumping to the top for anyone, but newbies too who may seem overwhelmed. It's a rough feeling especially if you are somewhat of a control person like me :)

Up late as I don't sleep much these days. I do know prayer works for some and I was wondering if you could add my daughter, Johnnybegood. She posts on the Colon forum. She is Stage IV w/ mets to liver and both lungs. Colon and liver are NED after many surgeries, rads & chemo, but she has multiple(38) mets in both lungs and is inoperable. She believes Jesus is carrying her through this along with fine doctors, but I would appreciate any extra help she can get.

Thanks,

Luv,

Wolfen
