Thoughts and Prayers needed please! - UPDATED

Hey everyone, I know don't really know any of you personally except for CBRVFR, but I am asking for you all to have my brother in your thoughts and prayers. He was just diagnosed with cancer yesterday. Yesterday they took out a large tumor that was growing inside of his L2 vertebrae, and they also removed one of his kidneys. He's recovering right now from the surgery, and soon they'll be going over his options for radiation or chemotherapy. To say that this is a shock is an incredible understatement. My brother is only 27 years old, and he's always been in good shape. Please pray for him or send some good thoughts his way when you get a chance.

Thanks all,

Justin

Hope they caught it and he can be around to be a thorn to his brother for MANY years. Chemo is rough so be sure you help his attittude with lots of pushing and support

Prayers to you, him and your family.

Must obey the sheep dog

It might make you feel better, my wife had a tumor and they completely removed L3 5 years ago. She's just fine now and we enjoy life the best we can. Hopefully your brother will recover as good.

Good luck to your brother and all your family.

I wanna go fast!

Re: Thoughts and Prayers needed please!

Thanks everyone for your warm wishes. Jetb--I am glad that everything worked out well for your wife, and I hope that's the case for my brother as well. They used one of his ribs along with a titanium rod to help support where his L2 used to be. I joked with him a few days ago (before we knew about the cancer) that he'd have to have a rod put in, and going through airport security would be a pain from now on

Osiris--As I told my mom, in a fistfight with cancer I've got my money on my brother. He's a tough guy.

Thank you all again for your continued support. I'll be in Seattle visiting for a while, but I'll update this thread when I get back. God bless!

Vero got a titanium rod filled with bone powder that they took on her hip. It screwed in place on L2 and L4. The last Xray she took where showing a real good bone reconstruction. Here she is today.

I wanna go fast!

Re: Thoughts and Prayers needed please!

Please post or PM your brother's name, hospital location, etc.

God likes things specific. Send along this info and I'll include your bro in my prayers tonight.

Godspeed.
