Dear Fellow Prayer Line Members. I am writing from my daughter's home in So Carolina. Last week she received a biopsy report that my 17yr old granddaughter, Claire Fontanella, has a "malignant melanoma, invasive" on her back next to her thoracic spine. This is not a sun-caused melanoma but rather a fast growing kind frequently associated with "adolescents and young adults". The Dec holidays kept the lab results from getting to our family in a timely manner. At this moment our daughter,Danielle, is making arrangements to take Claire to Sloan Kettering Hospital in NY where they specialize in this. Hopefully next week they will remove what remains of the tumor and nearby lymph nodes to see if it has spread. The SC labs think it has but we are praying this will not be the case. Claire is a beautiful person finishing her senior year in high school and planning for college. Her family are devout Catholics and I am asking if you would please pray for Claire's full and complete recovery from this disease. I thank you all so much and will keep you updated. With love, Charlene Brannan
Please keep Sarah Russell in your thoughts and prayers. Pray that God will grant Sarah healing from a successful upcoming medical procedure during the first week of April.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, AMEN!Read more
