Good Evening All,
Mark Sheeran asks for our prayers for a good friend of his. Carol has recently been diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. She began her first round of Chemotherapy on September 20th. I am including her story from Sharing Bridge below. This young woman needs our prayers and we need to raise the volume for her as she begins this life challenge. Please pray for Carol and Joe as they share this challenge. We pray for God’s intervention and we pray to the Blessed Virgin Mother for her intercession.
Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

After experiencing nauseau & abdominal discomfort, Carol decided to see her doctor the last week of August. Operating under the assumption that she had some sort of minor GI issue, she underwent several tests – not thinking much of them. The test results, however, warranted the scheduling of a PET scan the following day, which ultimately revealed masses in her pancreas and liver indicative of pancreatic cancer. After the longest 2 weeks ever – waiting for further appointments and then evacuating Florida due to Hurricane Irma – the results of a subsequent biopsy further identified the type of pancreatic cancer.
Last week, Carol & Joe met with a pancreatic oncologist at the Mayo Clinic and devised a plan for treatment, which will commence with chemotherapy and also include genetic testing. Carol begins her first round of chemotherapy September 20th.
Please keep Carol and Joe in your thoughts and prayers.
