My girlfriend Jessica has had a very hard couple of days. Her dad was just diagnosed with cancer, and they are trying to figure out what kind it is. It started with what he thought was a cyst inside his nose, he has had cysts before so he didn't think it was a big deal. Well, he put it off until it became harder for him to breathe through his nose, about 1 yr. When he went into have the drs do a cat scan, it came back cancerous. He also has several "lumps" in his face that are also cancerous. They are going to have to completely remove his nose and several portions of his face. (they have already started to graft new skin for his face) And all the while, they are still trying to figure out what kind of cancer it is. They did find out that his brain is cancer-free right now, so that is 1 positive. Jessica (26yr old) and her little sister Joann (23yr old) are just a mess over it. Jessica is planning her wedding for next summer, and is just completely heartbroken, and sick with worry over whether or not her father will be alive in time to walk her down the aisle. It is a horrible situation for all of them, and I have been just sick with worry for them. And Mr. Driscoll is only 56 yrs old himself.... I know we are all very busy, and have tons of other things to pray for and remember for our positive thoughts/vibes/wishes etc. But if you have a moment, or 30 seconds to think of my friends Jess & Joann and their dad, I'd greatly appreciate it. I know I lost many hours of sleep last night thinking about them & praying for them.... Thanks in advance for all of your help. You guys at TCS are truly great!
