My best friend's dad went to the hospital last night for a fall. A discussion of other symptoms prompted blood tests. He has cancer in his blood that has spread to his bones. Please pray for Louis and his family, and for his medical team. Thanks, prayer warroiors!

Breathe and take time

Prayers for sure. This is scary.

However, it may not be as bad as you fear. If indeed he has a blood cancer, it may not have spread to the bones. Blood cancers originate in the bones because that is where blood cells are produced. That is very different from a cancer that metastasizes to the bones.

Not only that, but some blood cancers (such as some nonHodgkins lymphomas) are aggressive and some are indolent (slow moving).

Pray, breathe, and support your friend through this scary time. It's important that he get a clear, specific diagnosis and then be under the care of a doctor who is knowledgeable about the specific cancer he has. Second opinions are often wise. Seldom is it necessary to rush immediately into treatment before taking time for a clear diagnosis and decision making. I have learned this through experience.
