Dear Fellow Prayer Line Members. Back in January I asked if you would all pray for my 17-year old granddaughter, Claire Fontanella, who had been diagnosed with an 'invasive malignant melanoma' on her back. This was not a sun-caused melanoma but rather a fast growing kind frequently associated with adolescents and young adults. My daughter's family lives in the Charleston SC area, and they were able to take Claire to Sloan Kettering Hospital in NY where they specialize in this. After surgery they prescribed a new form of chemotherapy - two drugs together in pill form twice a day. There were all kinds of worrisome side effects with these drugs but so far Claire has not experienced any of them. Her quarterly blood tests show no bad effects. She is eating real healthy and has put on some weight. She will have a CT scan in October. I just wanted all of you who have kept Claire in your prayers to know she turned 18 in June and this week she began her first year of college at North Carolina State University in Boone, NC. So many of you have asked about Claire, and Bill and I want you to know we are so grateful for all your prayers on her behalf. You're a wonderful parish community. God bless you all.
Keep Frank Mims in your thoughts and prayers. He has been going through many trials in the past few months; the death of both his parents, his wife was involved in a serious car accident and on top of that she is facing surgeries. Pray for strength and guidance for him and his family at this most difficult time.
Please keep Tina Coke, daughter of Nancy Hill and niece of Anna Morrison in your thoughts and prayers. She has an cancer surgery in the near future. Please pray for courage and strength.
After my last couple of visits with my oncologist we discussed going for a clinical trial. I went on the 16th to talk with a USC doctor about starting one. I feel pretty good but am having some back pain, chest pain, a cough and I don't have much of an appetite. My cancer treatments, up until now, are not working much in my favor. The USC doctor says I'm a good candidate for the clinical trial so I'm going to try to get into the trial.
I am so blessed to have so many praying for me; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please continue praying for me and clinical trial success. With God all things are possible.

Please pray for Kadin Stevenson, the 22 year old grandson of Kris Welchman. Kadin who serves in our nations Army was deployed today to Afghanistan. He leaves behind his wife of 18 months, Ally and their four mont old son Forest.

We ask this, through Christ, our Lord...AMEN!!
