Prayers for Elaine

This is me 3 summers ago with my friend Elaine. Elaine teaches English in our middle school level. I called her in February after reading an ad in a magazine for the Breast Cancer 3day walk. That hot summer, we trained and trained and then we walked 20 miles a day for 3 days in Cleveland OH and slept in tent city at night. It was a very exhausting weekend physically and emotionally. We would never be the same.
Elaine told me she never cries, but as we passed row after row of supporters and people cheering us on, even she had trouble keeping a dry eye. Here she is at the finish location...

2 weeks ago, my friend Elaine found out she had breast cancer. It is stage 2b and invasive. She has been having tests the last week and a half and today she goes to Erie to the Regional Cancer Center and they will tell her what her new lesson plan is. Please keep my friend Elaine in your prayers.

I will. Three of my best friends have beaten this. I sincerely hope the same will be true for your Elaine.

I too will prayer for Elaine. I just had surgery for skin cancer last week. God has been so good to me. Everything looks good so far and no treatments. Prayers can do wonders! N
