Hi everyone. I wanted to post a prayer need for a dear friend of mine. Monica is 31 and is currently battling thyroid cancer. This has been going on for the last 5 years and after visiting Mayo Clinic this week, she learned that all the efforts here at home have been for nothing. (3 rounds of high radiation.) When they removed her thyroid they did not remove the lymph nodes in her neck and the cancer had settled there and had laid dormant and is now raging. They are not sure if it has spread anywhere else. She will travel back to the Mayo Clinic on the 21st of February for removal of her lymph nodes in her neck. She has 6 children (1 passed away at 3 days old 3 years ago.)between ages 9 to 10 months and homeschools the two older children. Monica has a very strong faith, but right now she is understandably rattled. I just finished a cable scarf for her in the thyroid cancer colors. I can't wait to give it to her and especially now that she will be having surgery she can use it to help hide the scars. I know that she would really appreciate any prayers.
Here is a picture of the scarf I made for her. Thanks everyone!
