    I have some good friends names Autumn and JJ. I learned today that JJ's father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Autumn is handling it in her usual senseable way and paring down her farm work load in preperation for the days ahead. She is one of the strongest women I have ever met and I have great admiration for her but I know she is silently hurting inside. I share her pain as my own mother is going through stage 4 gastric cancer as we speak. JJ says nothing about it all and just trudges on with his daily chores as usual. They have two young children, Mason and Raven.
    Please pray for this wonderful family and help give them the strength they need to face this and pray for JJ's dad in his greatest need.
    [​IMG] to you all as you have always been there to support and uplift those who were low and troubled. Thank you for being my BYC family!

    Quote:I know! Isn't it insane how many people have this terrible stuff?! I can't help but think it must have something to do with some of the things they put in all our food now days. It's very frightening.

    Sunday I went by and visited with Autumn for a few minutes and she told me her father-in-law had lost tons of weight and had said to his wife that she would only be burdened with him for a few more days. She told me he could not do anything for himself he is so weak. It's very heartbreaking. They need your prayers badly.
