Hi Everyone,

This may not be the best place to say it but I'm stuck in quarantine and have no support system because I am the support system.

My dad has stage 4 lung cancer. He isn't responding to treatments. He has outlived his prognosis twice now, praise God. I am an herbalist and have him taking supplements and a nutrition program (which he has fallen off a bit because of nausea and appetite) which have helped but it is aggressive.


Mom called me sobbing today.


Dad was crying. He doesn't want to die- he doesn't want to leave us.


We are praying for a miracle and I need some prayers and support. For anyone willing, will you please lift my dad, Dan up in prayer- in whatever tradition you follow- for his recovery and relief from pain.


Please Friends, I'm falling apart, my dad is my hero. He is my rock. I feel like I need to run and find help but there isn't any. I've done all I can and am now waiting on Jesus. He has helped me/us before and I trust he will again. But please any prayers would be appreciated in great faith.


I feel so alone.


My heart is on the ground.

Your father will be in my prayers from tonight on Cedar.

May God grant your father ease and a strong recovery soon.

Amen

Prayers for you and your family Cedar.

Your father is going through his own grieving process as he knows death may come for him. Or it may not. Only God knows what his plans for us are.

Hopefully He decides now is not your father's time for everyone's sake.

Just be there for him and allow him to feel whatever it is he is feeling.

Be strong in your faith 💪

My cousin was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago- I know how it feels to be in your position. To feel helpless and panicked. My heart goes out to you, Cedar. It’s been a long rocky road dealing with this but I praise God for the opportunity for my family to draw closer to him and depend on him. Yesterday while reading the Bible I came across a passage that said, “When I am at my weakest, Lord, you are at your strongest.”

Depend on Him. Trust and expect Him to heal your father and raise him up. Who can praise the Lord’s name from the grave?

Sending you virtual hugs and love. We will rise from this <3
