Red face Prayers needed

I'm sorry to bother everyone again.
My BIL was diagnosed with lung cancer caused by Asbestos. He has NEVER smoked, isn't that sad?
Sadly, he is the step dad of my niece that was just diagnosed with Cervical and went through the treatments. My sister is at the end of her rope!! She said that she doesn't know how much more she can take. I dont' know what to do for her. She has always tried to be the rock since my mom died and now, she is still trying and she doesn't let us get close to her. I guess she feels that if she shows her emotions, she's not strong. It is in the 1st stages at least. It just that, he's over 60 and not the best of health. Has had heart attacks and other things go on with him. This can't happen dang it!! He's the jerk BIL that let me go!!!! He's too mean for this to happen!! Even after what he did, he is still a good guy and he would do anything for anyone in the family, he really would. They have been going through a bad audit with the IRS and are losing things that they are selling off. I'm afraid for my sister's sanity right now. Pray for them both please.

You can count on my prayers Stacy. They have certainly gone through more than most could handle. Please keep us updated, and hopefully there will good news soon.

Stacy, I wish I knew what to say to make things better but sometime words just aren't enough. But I hope my thoughts and prayers for your family will give some comfort.

ok, but this is the last one, tg.

i started with "and god, please look out for tg's...",

and i heard a deep sigh, and what sounded like an irritated adjustment of seating position.

Sometimes all you can say is God bless you and them, and I truly pray for the best.

Stacy, you and your family have been having a rough go of it ever since I joined DC and it doesn't seem to let up. I do hope that this is the last of your bad news and that your BIL is able to undergo succesful treatment, as well as your niece, and that things in general pick up for all of you soon. Thinking of you.
