I need help

  1. As some of you may know, my older sister died last year from Hodgkin's disease. She was 28 when diagnosed, but had really been sick since she was 27.

    Well, I now have a suspicious lump on the back of my shoulder/neck area that needs to be biopsied. I am 27 years old. My appointment is in 30 minutes and I am so scared. They did blood work last night, which was okay, and a chest xray that the dr. said was ok. But she did say that the radiologist would have to look at it today to know for sure.

    I just can't believe that the universe would give me Hodgkin's just one year after Julie died. I feel like I'm walking around in a dream. THis is just so unreal.

    To make matters worse, the dr. I saw last night said she would 'pray for me'. A very scary thing to say to a patient awaiting a possible cancer diagnosis.

    I told my parents and my boyfriend, and my father is going to meet me at my appointment this morning.

    Friends: please, I need your help. Please send what healing energy/thoughts you can to me. I'm scared and don't know what to do.

    Positive thoughts and prayers coming your way.

    Remember: Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1

    God bless you and may He send an angel to be with you in the dr's office.
