non-hodgkin lymphoma

My now youngest brother ( the first youngest passed away in 2005, due to a fall from a bridge), was diagnosed in Nov 2008 with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. according to his doctor, he has the most aggressive form that she has seen in her career. He has tried every chemo, radiation and can't progress enough for a bone marrow transplant. Nothing has helped. He has remained alive by having blood transfusions every week, sometimes every other day, and getting two units of platelets daily. Does anyone else have or know someone that has this in such an aggressive form? If so, Has anything worked for you or them? We are grasping a straws now. The only good thing is that he has Jesus Christ in his life and I believe that is wha is keeping him alive to this day. No treatment has worked. The cancer just eats it up.

    Prayer is powerful - especially Group Prayer
    Hi Little Sister, I am a 20 year survivor of NHL and have been considered cured so it is possible to beat this thing, I am living proof. I really don't remember what kind I had in how aggressive it was but I don't think anything is impossible if you have your faith. I know that while I was in hospital I had several prayer chains in churches going for me and I received a real healing in the hospital during that time - no coincidence there.

    I also came to know, after I had left the hospital, about a saint who peaked my interest, the Order she founded is in the States. I don't go to church much at all anymore and don't carry around a bible and preach - far from it - but this saint really pulled at me. I got to know the Order online and they have a prayer chain there where the Sisters take prayer requests. I have seem alot of special moments come from connecting with the Sisters and this saint. The website is :

    Follow the links there to "Prayer Requests" and tell them your brother's story. Let me know how that goes. Blessings, Blueroses.

    My Prayers are with you both/ I am a survivor of Non Hodgkins
    I ask that you take the time to read my story my user name is tamekagirl39, and I hope this will give some hope and encouragement to you and your brother. Have you all contacted "Cancer Treatments of America"? Check out there website for more information. Here is a little prayer for you bother. This is a prayer that my now deceased mother taught too me at a very young age, and now that I am 39 it still stays with me always even in the toughest times. I was 34 when I was first diagnosed. There is still hope out there.

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
    he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me
    in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
    thy rod and [thy]1 staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me
    in the presence of [mine]2 enemies:
    thou anointest my head with oil;
    my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life:
    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    There is certainly nothing like the power of prayer. Prayer is what is going to get your family through this. My diagnosis was agressive and as my dr has to keep reminding me, I was "pretty beat up" when diagnosed. It was the prayers of the righteous that got me through the ordeal. I was too sick to pray for myself.

    Try linking up with a few ministries: Benny Hinn ministries is known for the God's healing power.

    I also visited a couple of healing rooms (Christian based.... I made sure of that!)

    And there is a ministry in NC-Life Community Church (i'm not sure of your location), that has a healing service the first Sunday of every month:
