Please pray for friend Tom as he has a large melanoma behind his eye. He lives in the U.S. and there are only 2 doctors in the whole country who deal with this kind of tumour. They have been to Philadelphia and Tom has had radiation seeds placed behind his eye. It will take a while before these start working and then several months to be effective. Rather than removing Tom's eye, this treatment is the best course of action. Please pray that the treatment will be successful!

Please pray for four year old Harlow who is at Sick Kids Hospital. Harlow may need surgery on her bowels in the next few days.
Please also pray for Jacobie who will be having surgery Monday on her inner ear. The surgery will hopefully restore some of her hearing loss.
Please pray for both Harlow and Jacobie who are each facing serious surgeries. Pray that through the doctor’s skills, the right decisions are made in order to bring Harlow and Jacobie to the most favourable healing.
Margaret Irwin and her friend Karen wish to sincerely thank everyone for their prayers. Karen is now home after having esophageal surgery to remove cancer. Karen is on morphine to control the pain as the surgery was very invasive.
Karen is so appreciative of our ongoing prayers.

Margaret Irwin is asking for prayers for her friend Karen who is scheduled to have her cancerous esophagus removed. Surgery will be on Thursday January 17th at 10:45 in the East General Hospital.
Please pray for the surgery to be successful as the doctors have to collapse a lung to perform the procedure. Pray for comfort, strength and complete healing for Karen.
Please also pray for her two children who have been very supportive to their mom and are extremely concerned about her.

Please pray for success of these new treatments. Also please pray for Adrian’s daughter, Judith who is still in hospital battling depression.

Please also include Maureen, Adrian’s wife and Judith's mother in your prayers as she supports both of them during these medical crises.

The Librado’s continue to ask for prayers for Andrea.
