Need Prayers

My mom called yesterday to let me know that the doctor diagnosed her with Uterine Cancer. The background is that she had an abnormal pap and some bleeding so the doctor did a D&C last week. After the D&C, he told her and my dad that everything looked great. Well the results of the biopsy came back yesterday and cancer cells were found in various places of her lining. Its unclear if the cancer has spread to the ovaries or lymph nodes but they will remove everything in a hysterectomy that she is in the process of scheduling.

I have done the research and have heard many stories today so deep down, I feel like she will be all right. It appears to be in early stages and there is a good success rate of removing the cancer with the hysterectomy but I am scared. And Im worried. And I dont want my mom to have to go through this.

I know alot of you have heard this story and I appreciate the prayers. And for anyone else, if you could say a prayer for my mom tonight, Id be so greatful. She is a beautiful, kind and courageous person. And she is my entire world. Thanks :)
