I know that many of you don't like me or agree with most things i say on this site but I thought I would still ask for a little help with prayer. I just found out my mother has breast cancer. Any extra prayers could be helpful. I am still in shock right now and can't really focus on anything else. I have been on this board all morning trying to distract myself.
I'm sure many of you have some experience with loved ones having breast cancer. Any advice?
Getting news like this sure does put life in perspective.

I will pray for your Mother. What is her name?
We will pray for your mother and the family.
Praying for your mother grook. My dad had lung cancer not long ago and the doctors were able to remove it. I pray that the doctors caught your mother's in time and they can get rid of it with the least amount of complications.
I've had folks close to me diagnosed with various forms of cancer, with breast cancer being one of them. My hope and prayer is they caught it early and can remove and treat her, as they have come a long way in treating and curing breast cancer. The biggest and best advice I can give is that she remain very positive, no matter what. I have a close friend who is one of the brightest and most bubbly personalities I've ever known. She stays active and remained that way through even the toughest parts of her treatment. Not to say she didn't have awful days where she cried and almost had to be drug into the treatments, but I think one has to do that to provide a release. Once the treatment was over, she'd prop herself up and be so strong. We'd still joke around and all. Keep her and you and your family positive and smiling. Let her know you're there for anything she needs that you can possibly give at any time, and stay strong.
Again, while I'm not sure what stage it was caught in, or other circumstances, all the best, and will definitely pray for her and you all.
She is a retired school teacher and loves to paint. She sells her paintings in an art gallery at the Village at Sand Hills. She is an amazing woman.
Thank you for your prayers.
Done, buddy. Paula will be in our prayers tonight.
You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers also. Stay positive and everything will turn out fine.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
My wife is a breast cancer survivor. We will certainly be praying for you. It can be beat!
Will keep her in our thoughts and prayers. Wish you and your family all the best.

Will do. May God give you and your mother strength to get through this.
Prayers sent for your family. Like others have said, hopefully they caught it early and can remove it and treat her successfully.

Bless your mother and the rest of your family as you deal with this.
Thank you sooo much everyone. I'm glad to see so many have survived cancer. It gives me hope. Thanks again!!
I'll let her know you are praying for her.
Grook even though I do hate you :)
You and your entire family have my prayers buddy.
You have the right idea distracting yourself here . TBS all the way up to JC himself helped me through some VERY rough times .
I will continue to pray . Best wishes
You, your mother and your family will be in my prayers.
SOS-"Save Our Suzy" is an outstanding breast cancer support charity for those afflicted and their family members.
I will check it out. Thanks for the info!
I already prayed for her. I pray that you have faith and bathe yourself with scriptures on healing so you can be her support.
Grookster...my prayers are with you and your family at this time and in the future.Let your mother know how much can be done now ...today... in her fight. I also have fought this battle and am cancer free almost 7 years. Your families' love is a powerful medicine at this time especially.
