Please pray for Linda Rold's husband, Trent, and children. She was diagnosed with melanoma just days before I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She passed away January 19.

a few days later -a little more information:
Linda was in her mid-thirties and leaves three elementary aged children behind. She had a melanoma spot removed about five years ago, and it reoccured as tumors in her brain. I did not know Linda well although we have lived in the same area and have common friends. We attended the same ladies' retreat in late September, after which both of us were diagnosed with cancer. She was a Christian and my friends tell me she was very ready to go to heaven.

I'll be praying for her family, Amy. Wanted to let you know, too, that even though I don't comment here much, I do read your posts. :) You, Jon and the kids are mentioned in prayer nearly every night, as we're putting the kids in bed. If, by chance, I forget to mention your name, one of the kids will prompt me. :D We love you!

Wow. That is so quick. Wanted to let you know that after finding out about what was going on with you I made an appt to see my doctor about a mole I was concerned about and had been putting off for sometime today I had that appt.. On March 10 they are going to remove it and send for testing but because it is so big I will have to have stiches.
I don't know if you will ever know how much more aware I am sure you have made so many people with this blog and being so open about what you are going through. I know that I personally appreciate it very much not only because you are my cousin but also because it has opened my eyes so much to the many things everyone often takes for granted. I love you very much and will continue to pray that everything will go as well as it possibly can.
