Calling all Prayer Warriors

I received another email today. The test results from Kristi's bone marrow biopsy was not good, but neither was any news the Walker family received today. The cancer in Kristi's body is surrounding her brain, all of her bones, and spreads throughout her entire body. Unfortunately, Kristi's cancer is a type that is extremely resistant to chemotherapy, and obviously very aggressive. The doctors believe that the cancer has only been in her body for two months, and the prognosis given by the doctors is that Kristi has less than one year to live.

Please be on your knees for this precious family!

Chuck and Kristi Walker are old friends from First Baptist Church of Irving. Chuck was the youth minister when I began going to the church and his wife Kristi was pregnant with their first baby when I began teaching 12th grade girls Sunday School.

I just received word that while Krisit was in her 35th week of her third pregnancy, the baby put too much pressure on her hip and it broke. They induced Kristi into labor and their new precious baby boy, Zane, is doing well. However, Kristi was not recovering from the break and the doctors began to run some tests. They discovered that Kristi has stage 4 bone, liver and breast cancer. It is a very aggressive type and at this time, they are still trying to determine all the "details" of the cancer.

I am asking for everyone to be in prayer for this sweet family, Chuck, Kristi and their children: Cade, Mason and Zane (all under the age of 5, Zane being only 5 days old.) Please pray for the Father's complete and total healing over Kristi's body and provide a peace for their entire family.
"God's way is perfect.
All the Lord's promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
For who is God except the Lord?
Who but our God is a solid rock?"
Psalm 18:30-31

"Let us hold tightly without wavering to the HOPE we affirm,
for GOD CAN be TRUSTED to keep his promise!"
Hebrews 10:23

My heart is very burdened by this story I first read about on Amanda's blog. It is so hard to understand.

My dear sweet husband lost his first wife at 28 from liver and colon cancer. She was pregnant at the time (lost that sweet one) and had three other children under the age of 4 at the time of her diagnosis.

God brought us together nearly eight years ago. Her/my children are now wonderful teenagers.

One thing that my children cherish are the hundreds or cards, letters, and stories about their Mom. There is also a book of emails that their mother's best friend kept of all the updates etc. There will be a time when the children will want to read these. I encourage all of you that are friends to document the days and weeks ahead. It will be important to her children one day. The photo albums that Jennifer made of her children are kept in our den for them to look at anytime they want. I have found them peering over the pictures many times. It brings them comfort.

My husband and I are praying for this sweet family. It is very personal for him. We do not know them but in glory one day I know we will meet.

I am bookmarking your site so that we might have updates.

I to am very distressed for this wonderful family. My Daughter-in-law and son are friends with Kristi and Chuck. This story has touched so many. We are praying for Jesus' healing touch and his strength for all of them. We know that with Jesus all things are possible. They are in his care and our prayers.
