So I am not the type of person to usally ask for prayers, but this time I need them My 5 year old son and I have a condition called neurofibromatosis,( where you get small begin growth just on or under the skin) sometimes 2-5% of the time they could be cancerous but the chances are slim to none. he has a beign tumor on his optic nerve and his optic chiasm and at his doctors appoinment today I was told the one in the chiasm is starting to grow a little, please pray that it stops growing so he does not have to go throu surgrey or chemo. he goes for a repeat mri come December. I am so worried right now maybe a little over worried, doctor said the growth is mm, right now I am in a complete daze, and my husband is gone for the mext 5 weeks training, please keep us in your thoughts

I will keep him and YOU in my prayers. It must be hard especially without your husband there to lean on for support. I hope he does not need surgery, but IF he does then I pray that everything goes ok. HUGS!

Oh man. Now it's your turn for the prayer angels. I send out all my prayers thoughts and love to the little one. Hope things go for the best of all of you. This is harder than dealing with an older relative I think. So young to have to go through this. May God's angels keep your son and all family and friends under their wings during this time of need. Good luck friend. keep up informed/updated. PRAYERS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I will pray for your little boy!!! No problem!!! No need to worry...Let me know his name and I'll let everyone I know to keep him in their prayers. I'm sure you know your husbands spirit, love and prayers are with you both as well. It breaks my heart to hear of your childs illness. God does watch after the little ones... HIS little ones. Bless you sweety!

With both of you having to suffer with this, if you'd like to add each other as friends, I'd like to try to help you in any way I can...maybe a supportive friend could help...even a little?
