Dear Friends,

I rose early this morning with an urgency for prayer for Mary Dickieson and her husband Allan. She has bone cancer from her skull through her back and hips. She had been making progress, they were able to freeze it, but she had been to weak to take chemo-therapy, but had to return to the hospital due to problems in her neck, she has been there now for about 3 weeks. She is not doing well, the last I know it is not in her organs, but that may have changed,I hope to visit them this weekend.

Being the trooper that she is, her responce to all of this is, "I have the best of both worlds. If I am healed, I get to stay with Allan and the children (all grown) and work in this world for Jesus to bring souls home, if not I get to go home to the Father, and work in heaven for Jesus to bring souls home. Either way I win."

Through the prayers of the Theotokos, oh Savior Save us!

May St. Roche, the patron of those who live with cancer, intercede for Mary. May her healing be granted so that she can work to bring many to Jesus. May Allan and her children rejoice in her presence all the days of their lives.

May God help her and may she be healed according to His Will. She can also use the stuff that God gave to us to overcome cancer...herbs, vitamins, cancer fighting foods, etc. Of course is not to replace chemo but only to suppliment to her wellness.

Hey everyone,

I want to say thanks for your prayers for our friends the Dickieson's. Mary went home to the Lord early this morning in her sleep. Allen called and said she has it made now, she is home.

Her suffering was great. The cancer covered the inside of her skull, down to her hips, but it never entered the organs. This last was in the neck, they did radiation on it and she was not able to swallow at all because her throat was so burned. The doctors gave her a prognosis of ten years, but I think she was tired, she fought for a year, and just wanted to go home.

I awoke around 1:30am and the Holy Spirit was singing the song that we use in the church for memorial, it continued for awhile (until I stubbornly got on the computer), but I think that was the time that she died.

And I just left my dad is in ICU, they are regualting his heartbeat. If you would whisper a prayer for him.

God Bless you all,
Rose

Oh Yes Dear spdundas,

I totally agree. Mary was using a considerable amount of natural nutrition guided by the doctor that has treated me for 2 years. Was having tremendous success, until this cancer appeared in her neck. It has been three weeks since the pain started there, and she is home now with Jesus. But the natural nutrition definately gave her a better quality of life while she was fighting the battle. But as Stan shared either way they felt she would win. Now she gets to stand before the throne of God and work for all of us down here.

God's Blessings be yours,
Rose
