Prayers for Rashelle

Please be in prayer for my sister-in-law Rashelle. Rashelle is married to my husband's brother Josh. She is in her early 30's and the mother to our beautiful nephew (4 years old) and niece (nearly 16 months).

Rashelle recently found out that she has cancer. This doesn't appear to be a little cancer either. (Is there such a thing?) They have diagnosed her cancer as Mediastinal (thymic) large B cell Lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes that started in her thymus. They removed a large tumor (the size of a small melon) from her chest area, partially attached to her lung. Currently they are testing her to determine if the cancer has spread to her bones. She had her first round of chemo last week with many more to come.

Unfortunately Josh and Rashelle live in Arizona so we cannot be of much help, but we are praying and I would ask that you pray for Rashelle, Josh and their children. If you have children of your own, imagine the thoughts that would be rushing through your head as you prepare to fight a battle like Rashelle is facing right now.
