: I have been fighting cancer for almost 3 years now that has metastisized to my lungs. I have done numorous rounds of chemo and radiation, and have had other surgeries. This one though is scary. I will have my right lung removed on Tuesday June 27th. I have several tumors, but one is growing out of control and has taken over most of my lung and is closing in on my heart. I cannot do any other treatments until this is taken care of due to having infection behind the middle lobe that has collapsed. I have never been so scared until this. The doctors tell me that 1 in 10 die from the surgery and 1 in 4 have complications. Tehy tell me since I am only 28 taht I have a good chance though. I know that if I don't have this done though I will die. I have always been so positive and believed I would beat this. I still have hope, but now it is getting harder. I just had to vent. Please keep me in your prayers that day. Thanks! Nicole
nicole, don't give up hope. i do beleive parying can help. miracles can happen every day. it happened to us twice. once in which a diagnosis was seen on an xray and upon surgery, it wasn't there. it would have been very devestating, but it wasn't there after praying. second was a book someone in our family had found for someoneelse sitting on a bookstore shelf which led us to a doctor that was able to cure a condition other doctors weren't . when we went to try to find and buy the book the bookstore said they never carried it. the point is we will pray for you, keep fighting miracles happen every day.
