The tears come…and we keep praying.

September 1, 2009

I just received an email from my mother-in-law regarding a dear family friend. Her name is Lana, and she has been fighting metastatic melanoma for a few years now. If you watch Grey’s Anatomy, you’ll know that Izzy has been fighting MM over the past season.

In this email (forwarded from Lana’s husband, Chad), they have decided to stop treatment. Her body is very weak, and any other treatment may not be safe for her. Hospice will be coming into their home on Wednesday to help keep Lana pain-free. She is so very sweet and so very young, but we know that God absolutely has a purpose for her life.

I’ve only met Lana once, but the entire time we spoke to each other, it were as if we had been friends for a while already. She has been another welcoming person into Phil’s family. I pray that she and her family hold onto each other during these rough times, and that they celebrate each moment together, for God could call ANY of us away at a moment’s notice.
