Update

My brother just called me. My Aunt Marlene has been diagnosed with skin cancer. She has had a mole on her nose for several years, and they just removed it. It is cancerous. We don't know how bad it is. She lives just a mile from my workplace, so I am leaving to go see her. My birth mom was her twin sister. Mom survived Non-Hogkins Lymphoma, only to die of a blood clot last November.

My Aunt Marlene and I are very close. Her best friend, Chris, committed suicide on Mother's Day weekend. Last year in June her daughter-in-law died in a car accident. July 9th, her grandson had heart surgery. She has just had so much to contend with. My heart is breaking right now. Please, please, please pray for her.

Thank you.
