    Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend and has the week off to a good start. I am writing because a girl I went to high school with is in need of prayer. She is 24/25 years old and was diagnosed with Colon Cancer almost 2 years ago, 3 weeks before her wedding. They quickly realized that it was not only in her colon, but also in her liver, lungs, and lymph system. To make matters worse, over the past 2 years, despite aggressive treatment, it has metasticized to her bone and now her brain. Her name is Mereidth Rankin and I am asking you to pray for her. This past week, she was brought home with Hospice and has been surrounded by family and friends and her wonderful husband. Please pray for peace for Meredith and acceptance from her beloved family. Please visit her website if you wish to read more about her and her 2 year battle with this horrific disease.

    Thank you.

                I just got done reading her website, and couldnt help but cry. She sounds like an amazing women with great strength and courage. I cant believe the amount of people that have come together to show support.
