Oh no... Rick, I am so sorry to hear that. Glad that beating this is a very strong hope. Both of you will be in my prayers.


Rick, you and your bride have got my prayer support friend. Trust in God, he can make all things new again and he can get both of you through this. Prayers are going up.

Tom Flake


I am sorry to hear this. You and your wife are in my prayers.


You got it. And for the doctors.

We went through that some years ago (14?).


Thoughts and Prayers sir!!

Know you don't know me, but I check out your site everyday.

Hang in there and be strong!!



It's such a frightening moment for you both. Of course I'll be praying. Ephesians 3:20.


Be strong. I will keep you in my prayers.


Rick, I am so very sorry. Linda is an amazing, strong woman and the love that you share will get you both through this. You know how I've felt about God and praying for the past few years but I will be praying for Linda, for you, for the doctors, and for the whole family. I love you all very much!!

9 years since my breast cancer diagnosis. It will take awhile, but there will come a time when you don't even think about it.

Keep a good attitude and God bless.

tim aka The Godless Heathen

Thoughts, Rick, it's all I got.

So sorry...hang in there, both of you.


Rick, you and your darling have my prayers. Please keep us updated.

If you're having trouble understanding all that medicalese, don't be puzzled - message me in FB and I'll be glad to research and explain anything. You need to understand things so you can fight this fight.

Major hugs.

Nancy French


Sissy Willis

God bless you all. You are in my prayers.

Bill Burns (AKA Theocoid)

My prayers are going out to her and your family.

Kris, in New England

Prayers winging their way to the heavens. Medicine is a marvel these days; if they say it's likely it's beatable - then it is.


I sincerly hope she overcomes this adversity. I'll offer up a prayer for you both tonight.

chuck aka xtnyoda

Yahweh Rapha, our healer, guide the Doctors, use the medicine, guide by Your hand of grace and strength, and love ... and heal for Your glory.

Thank You.


Prayers for you both, Rick. Take Mommynator up on her offer. She was a big help to me awhile back on an issue not nearly so vital. She is great.... but you knew that! May you both experience the grace and mercy of Our Lord; His tangible presence throughout this ordeal.


My prayers are with you.


praying for you guys

Col 1:9


I found you via Mark Shea. I am very sorry for the reason I have found you, but have come to offer words of hope.

You are going to learn all sorts of new stuff in the next 12 months. My wife had the same diagnosis at the tender age of 43. Younger is worse for these sort of things you'll learn. You are going to learn all sorts of incredible things in the coming months. You'll learn all sorts of new interesting medical terms. You'll learn more about your wife, your self, and about the whole world of breast cancer. You'll soon be surprised by just how many people have been touched by it. As well as how many people there are out there who will support you all through it.

Feel free to email if you want some pointer on some first steps from someone who has been down your road.

It is hard to believe , but God's Blessing in somewhere in that diagnosis, my prayer is that you find it.



Praying for God's love and care to surround your wife, for His peace to fill your hearts, and for His hand to guide the hands of those providing treatment to your wife.


Thanks Nick... Good to know you're still out there my friend...

So sorry to hear this. You guys'll be in my prayers.



Know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.

One of the most important things that you as a family can do for her is be there. Be there to listen. Be there to share the good moments. Be there to share the bad moments. But most of all be there to understand.

Understand she is human and she will go through all different types of emotions, good and bad. She needs you and the children to love her more than ever now.

There are millions of women who are affected by this disease. I have many friends who have gone or are going through this now. It is a journey...a journey that may take many twist and turns. Just be there and understand.

What your son wrote touched me, as a mother what more could you ask for from a child. We as mothers never want our children to worry or hurt , it is in our nature to protect them.

Having the wonderful support from her family and friends will make this journey easier.

And know that there will be many praying for you all each and every day.

Remember God is the great physician and he is capable of making us whole both physically and spiritually. My prayer is that he will do both for each one of you.


I appreciate everyone's prayers and good wishes... and I know my wife does...

Thank you all

Found you through Mark Shea also. I just had that diagnosis last June. I am still going through part of my treatment, but the tough chemo is behind me. I made it! It's all so fresh for me still - I pray that all goes well for you and your family. I see there is much love and support therein. God bless all of you.

Mary-Elaine McGinn

Having gone through a struggle with a rare sarcoma - 3 years and counting, I know the emotional turmoil you both are suffering. Keep your faith and be each other's helpmate as you go through this. You are in my prayers.


Hard to believe it's been 3 years (and a day) since we first heard this news. I am so very happy to say that today, my bride and the love of my life remains cancer free.

Thank God for His mercies, His love, His healing touch.

Might we all draw nearer to Him, and not just when things are dark and light is needed.
