    I just found out yesterday my 27-year old granddaughter has cervical cancer. She is my son's oldest stepdaughter. They were doing a hysterectomy and found it was too advanced and stopped the procedure.

    The plan is to do a PET scan next week and then targeted radiation.

    I'm not religious or even particularly spiritual (though I do meditate), but would appreciate any prayers, good thoughts, etc. for her. Her name is Jessica. Thank you.

    Sorry to hear illness especially such young age. Although I don't know you and your grand daughter in person; I will include Jessica in my special prayers (my prayers are non religious and they are kind of me trying to send the good, positive thoughts and wish of healing) before I go to sleep. I also pray for all sick and the sickness in general to disappear from this world. I will remember Jessica together with 4 other special person that I pray for every night.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your granddaughter, Mary. She is far too young to be going through something like this. Sending healing prayers her way. :angel:

    Thanks @ebethc - it's never a good age, but it is much worse with someone so young -

    My brain which is used to doing so much reading and research re ME/CFS wants to tackle this now -- anyways, I really appreciate everyone's thoughts, prayers and good wishes --
