I may be a heathen but I know when someone needs my prayers

Whether or not you are familiar with Midwestern Mommy, please go to her blog and leave her a comment or send her an email with your thoughts and prayers. She just found out she has cancer - either colon or lymphoma, she wasn't sure at time of posting - and though she's trying to put on a brave face, joking about the inevitable weight loss, she desperately needs your best wishes.

And please, even if you're not a church goer, say a prayer for her family as well, especially her beloved husband and her adorable little boy (and hell, for her dog too!). They need all the support they can get during this difficult time.

I'm headed over there now to let her know I will say a prayer for her and her family.

God can move mountains. I KNOW he can handle this as well. :)

Midwestern Mommy isn't a blogger I'm familiar with, until today. I went over to say hello and send some good thoughts her way.

Praying hard. Thanks for posting this. Lisa has become such a good friend of mine and I'm blown away (although not surprised) about how the blogosphere is embracing her and her family.

Oh, what horrible news.

I was shocked to hear about Lisa...and so saddened. She's one tough lady, though so I am hoping for the best.
Thanks, Mrs C...

Heathen prayers are the best kind, I'm sure. I'll head over now and send some love. Cancer, that is just the suck.

We'll light some candles in the NATUI household for her and her family.

I hope this was detected early enough for good treatment options. She can count on my thoughts and good vibes, too. Too many cancer folks in my family; but most of them are survivors. Let's all pray that Lisa is one of those, too.
