Good morning,
I have been reading your posts, and are asking help for a very dear friend of mine in South Africa. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer in Jan 2012. He has undergone 7 chemo sessions. Are there stage 4 stomach cancer survivors that can give me any, any advise for him and his family, please? He has lost almost 30kg, his family is devastated. Any advice please. I am also trying to find out why is surgery not an option? The cancer has not spread to any of his organs - praise God!! We are praying and believing, please help. Blessings for all of you.

Thank you very much for your e-mail. He is from South-Africa, I will immediately send your information to his wife. Unfortunately the prognoses yesterday was even worse, looks like the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. We believe God has the power to heal him from cancer, we have seen miracles, and are definitely praying for one. Only God knows if it is in His will to heal our friend.
God bless
