Please pray for Mary Silvestri. She and Joe, their family need all of our powerful prayers. Prayers for doctors to exhaust all opportunities for treatments and that Mary and Joe are guided to the right decisions in their choices.
Mary has been diagnosed with cancer. It is treatable and she continues to undergo more delicate tests in the coming weeks. Please be with them in prayer.
