My girl Cindy needs your prayers please. Immediately.

Sorry to take you away from the weekend link party, however some things are just more important. In fact, this is probably the most important post I’ve ever made.

Just recently, my nephew’s wife Cindy was diagnosed with cancer. We had NO idea. None.

She was admitted last week when the bad news hit. She has choriocarcinoma.

If you google it, you will find it’s a cancer that has a good success rate. However, Cindy crashed. There were major complications going wrong faster than you could name them, so they couldn’t do radiation right away. It was too late.They quite simply had to save her life first.

While waiting, the cancer spread. She’s in critical condition.

I fired up a post on my facebook HERE, requesting to keep her in your thoughts and prayers. And you did just that. You blew me away in fact! 

My sister and niece flew out in 2 hours notice to be with her. These were my sister’s words this AM after seeing the facebook post by all of you:

Donna you are my strength now, this brings tears to my eyes and everyone in this house. It truly did work, there was a thumbs up for chemo when the prayers came our way, uptill then it was very doubtful they could do it. This is so scary, like living a nightmare. Kids are pulling us through this and making us smile and laugh. Hugs and kisses back.

Something changed. They were able to administer chemo! (thanks to you) Everyone was elated! And another round was scheduled.

Cindy also found your messages and said:

“These make my day!!!! Loving all the support, makes everyday easier!”

Cindy swingin' a pink wig!

I caught her on FB jokin’ around even! She was preparing to lose her hair and mentioned she wanted a pink wig. A friend brought this little number over for her and she was delighted. LOL!

But…

Something isn’t right yet again. This was Cindy’s last message on FB moments ago:

“Things are getting worse so we are now going hour by hour. Blood count keeps dropping. I’m continuing on with treatment in case I get that one shot that it works out. Fighting hard for my babies. I love and thank everyone for all their support!!!!”

I feel so utterly helpless. So posting about this is all I could really think of to do to help. I know numbers in prayer make a difference. So here I am.

Cindy is a pure optimist. There isn’t much that can get this girl down. She is strong! She’s been through a whole lot. She finally got herself into a place with a loving family, a baby girl after a very long wait, a new move to a new home, and now this.

If you would pray for Cindy and keep her in your thoughts over the next little while, I can’t tell you how much my family and I would appreciate this.

Would you consider sharing this post? Pinning, whatever it takes? I’m hoping to spread the prayer chain as much as possible. This is about my girl. I want to see her go home to her family.

Thank-you!

Update: Wish to keep tabs on Cindy?

  1. Praying for Cindy! Thank you for sharing her story. I will share it on my blog to go live tomorrow. God is in control! God bless Cindy and the entire family. Take care, audrey ♥

  2. I am so very sorry that she has to go through so much! She seems like quite an upbeat and strong-willed person – a very good combo. My Grandmom passed away from complications of her 8th cancer this past Spring and my mother-in-law is preparing for chemotherapy treatment after removing a cancerous tumor a few weeks ago; I completely understand the pain and the petition for prayer. Cindy, as well as you and your family, will be in my prayers for sure!

  3. I am sharing this on my Facebook so that all my believing Friends can come in agreement for an outstanding and powerful testimony of what God can do! As well, for the family and all who are affected with this difficult time.

  4. Praying in faith that Cindy will strengthen daily and that this cancer will diminish. God is in control and yes there is power in prayer! Although I do not know you, I am a christian and I take every opportunity to pray for needs I see, read or hear about. I treat this as you were my own family and I would definitely pray hard for a loved one, this is no different! Isaiah 41:10

  5. I will be praying for her. I went through this with my best friend. Her blood count is dropping because of the chemo. It should start to come up in a day or two. Chemo practically kills you before the cancer has a chance to. I am so hoping all this works….so glad she has you and the rest of the family.

  6. As soon as I read your post, I started praying–may you and your family find strength and comfort in knowing that others are holding you close in our hearts and prayers.
    Jeanette

  7. Donna, I am so sorry to hear of Cindy’s illness! I hadn’t seen your Face Book post, so am glad I came to read your blog. Cindy, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that treatment will make you well and for God to guide the doctors and others who will administer care to you . All the optimism I hold in my heart, I send to you. Be strong, have faith and be well. Much love to you and your family, Leena
    PS – diggin the pink wig – you go girl!

  8. Donna- You have my prayers going up right now. She just needs to hang in there and her blood count should come back up. I am sure she is frightened and scared…and even though she has everyone around her this is something each person faces completely on their own. Blessings to her and peace for her soul. xo Diana

  9. What a beautiful face and spirit. I don’t know you, Cindy, but I love you and am sending you all my thoughts and prayers. May you pull through brilliantly and dance your way home to your family.

    Lots of love,
    Juliette in California

  10. I’m sharing this on my blog, on Facebook and emailing this to everyone I can think of. As I pray for her healing, I will also pray for she and her husband to feel the Lord’s love and guidance for every decision there is to make.

  11. Where two or more are gathered in My name, there I am also. Matthew 18:20

    We are all praying for Cindy and probably many more who aren’t writing you about it.
    Love to Cindy, her family and friends.
    Paula

  12. Count me in please – when enough people send out prayers or positive thoughts to the universe with just one message I really believe it can land right where it’s supposed to.
    I so hope she gets better ( soon )
    I’ll post this on my blog for whatever extra prayers that brings her way – each one counts……………..
    Hugs,
    Suzan

  13. Lord, I lift this family up to you. I pray your healing on this beautiful young girl and strength to endure these treatments. I pray a peace for this family and that you would give the doctors wisdom and use this as a testimony of your healing grace. Thank you for your mercy and your love for us. I ask in Jesus name..amen. Lifting you all up as you go through this. Lean on him..he loves you so!

  14. Praying for God’s grace, intercession and peace. And I know that when two or more pray to Him..he listens. And a Huge Hug to you too!! Please keep us posted

  15. Donna, i read your post and immediately thought of this verse…

    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

    you’re in my prayers Cindy ♥ much love

  16. Love and prayers for all of you. God makes miracles. My Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and wasn’t expected to live out the year – he had five good ones after that. I firmly believe that prayers from our family and friends helped him.

  17. Cindy and your family will remain in my prayers..we just got done with our daughters cancer treatment in April..She was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma right after giving birth to her fourth child. Prayer got us through and we will pray the same for your Cindy. xxoo

  18. Cindy and all your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Cindy if you read this, know many people are praying for you and sending love and hugs your way. I know what you’re going through, I’ve been there. My daughter was diagnoised with Cancer at 19, the day before my birthday. It was out of the blue, we had no clue she had it. It was a hard battle to fight and the prayers of strangers helped her through it, so count on us for prayers and strength.

  19. Donna my favorite Funky Junker.We have Cindy in our prayers right now, we have her family and their fears in our prayer….and you in our thoughts…I have had more then a few with cancer…my hopes are for a turn from bad news to positive…and nothing will make that happen like prayers from around the world to Cindy and her family..Dear Lord,let us pray …..

  20. Father, God,
    I’m lifting up to you, Cindy and her family. I’m praying for a miracle, if that be your will. I’m praying for the Dr’s that are treating her..for wisdom for them. May they all feel Your Arms around them during these days. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
    My BFF was told a few weeks ago that she has cancer and only has a few more weeks to live. I feel that I can relate to your situation…Praying for the miracle!
    Deb

  21. I’m praying for Cindy, now! I’m sorry she is going through this! Lifting up her! May God give you and your family strength at this difficult time. We serve a miracle working God! Much prayer=much power!

  24. Prayer works! There is great power in collective prayer so please know that I am praying and adding her to a prayer list. May God provide healing and the knowledge the medical team needs. Sending healing energy her way and strength for all.

  30. I came across this story on facebook. I’m so so sorry that someone so young, beautiful, full of life, with young kiddies and so much more to live for is going through such trials. I DO believe in the power of prayer. 8 years ago my own son was given 24-48 hours to live and when all medical science appeared to be failing, the power of God gave us a break through. And he made a complete recovery. Sending love, prayers and good wishes in abundance your way.x

  31. Cindy pulling hard for you girl! WOW does that pink wig look stunning on you …really it does! You are a fighter and you will fight hard. We are here praying for you and you will beat this. you will be home soon with your sweet family. Thinking of you all, your beautiful Cindy!

  48. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  49. Shirley said. I don’t have a blog but it won’t stop us from praying for Cindy. God bless and lift you up with a cure.

  50. Donna, I dropped my DIY mindset immediately after seeing your post and started praying for Cindy! Lots of love going her way.

    Tess

  51. Hang in there, be strong . God will prevail. Have faith in Him. I lift your niece up and hope she finds strength and healing in knowing the Lord will help her and her family through this very difficult time. Hugs to all

  52. I’ve lost several family and many friends to this dreaded disease. May God pour his blessings upon Cindy.

  53. I am so sorry for your family, what a horrible ordeal. Definitely, just said prayer one, passing this on to all my friends. I have the strongest belief in the power of prayer, even if it just gives us the strength to keep going. Much love to you and your family. -K

  54. Donna,
    So sorry to hear about Cindy. I pray that she gets better, I pray that her children will get to continue to enjoy their mommy for years to come and pray for strength for your entire family and that God looks over all of you, and heals her. This was so hard to read and not feel the pain you must all be going through. I don’t know you personally, but it brought tears to my eyes. How hard this must be for your family. It’s just so tragic to see someone so young go through something do devastating, especially with all that she has going for her. May God bless her and your entire family and her babies.

  55. Praying for Cindy and joined the facebook group. Now I am planning on how to get my pink on to support Cindy.
