    *******UPDATE******

    Thanks so very much for all your responses, guys. Al dropped by my place a couple days after I orginally posted this(my printer just got fixed yesterday) and the fact that complete strangers were willing to lend their support brought tears to his eyes. He couldn't believe that people from all over the continent were willing to pray for his wife. He thanks everybody that responded because" they need all the help they can get."

    Thanks so very much, folks, for giving a good friend of mine a needed lift. You guys are the greatest!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    *****END OF UPDATE*****

    Here's the situation:

    A very good friend of mine, Al, is going through some tough times as of late. His wife, Dianne, has to start taking medication to treat some nodules the doctors found in her lungs. They hope the drugs will take care of the nodules, but as of now if she doesn't respond it looks like the next step is chemotherapy.

    Now, Al is the kind of guy that smiles and laughs all day long. I work with the guy 40 hours a week and VERY rarely do I see him get upset(unless a real idiot crosses our path /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif). But lately I've noticed that he's got lots on his mind, and his smile isn't as big- like you can blame him.

    C'mon, brothers.......show Al and Dianne that they're not alone in this. Let's show them what CK5ers are made of. I'll print this off sometime tomorrow and show him.....

    Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It's really to bad to hear this kind of stuff. Why are some of the best people on this earth punished to such a great extent? Tell your friend that things will get better. There isn't a better time then now to have to rely on the world of science and medicine.
    Wishes and prayers to you and your friends. Be fighters.

    Many prayers will be said and angels called upon to help you two. Just stay strong and don't ever give up. You both can do anything as long as you just stick together because Love is a very powerful medicine.

    Re: Guys, please spare a moment for a good friend of mine

    al and dianne,
    i will be praying for you and keeping you both in my thoughts. i know what you are going through and so does my husband, i have terminal cancer and have been on the road you are about to head down, my husband has been my rock and strength he has been there to cheer me up and to keep me smiling, without his love i wouldn't have made it this far, also the people on this sight are incredible, they have given me the strength and hope to fight this disease, you couldn't ask for better friends, they are here for you day or night, when you need someone to lean on you and your wife can come here and we will be here to listen to you, even if you just want to vent or need some cheering up, there are alot of good people here that care. i know its scary and the anger is unbelievable, somedays you just want to run and hide from everything and somedays there will be tears, but don't ever give up and remember she can beat this have faith in each other and in god, and if your wife ever needs an ear to listen to her she can call me or email me anytime i do know what it is like and i do understand. so just remember you have alot of people here praying for you both, my heart goes out to you and dianne, you both will be in my prayers tonight. please keep me posted on how you both are doing.

    I may get flamb'ed for this, but whenever I feel despair, I read Revelation 21:4. Short but powerful.

    Re 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    The surrounding reading helps too...
