A Prayer Request For My Cousin Kim Smith Worley Who Has Lymphoma

My cousin Kim is back in the hospital yet again, due to a fever because of her weakened immune system. Please continue to pray for her.

I ask all of you to please keep my cousin, Kim Smith Worley in your prayers. She is currently undergoing treatment for Lymphoma.

Kim is a 49-year-old loving wife, mother of 2 and grandmother. She is bravely fighting Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma also known as DLBCL. She is the backbone of her family and a very strong, God fearing woman. She is in the fight of her life with Lymphoma.

She was admitted to the hospital on March 21, 2016 for what we thought was going to be a quick removal of her gallbladder. After they finally decided to do surgery she started going down hill and wound up in the ICU on March 29 fighting for her life. At first they thought she had some kind of fungal or bacterial or viral infection. Finally after gallons of blood work, biopsies, tests, and a lot of fighting she was diagnosed on April 11, 2016. She started Chemo on April 18, and had her 2nd round on May 10. However on May 7, she was discharged from the hospital! She has been in such great spirits and she is such a fighter. But the tables quickly turned again and on May 20th she was admitted back to the hospital with an infection.

Today, July 15, Kim completed her 4th round of Chemo, and she has 2 more rounds to go.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine Laziosi

Oh great Saint Peregrine, you who have been called "The Mighty" and "The Wonder-Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you. For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of Kim whom we entrust to you.

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Jude the Apostle

Dear Apostle and Martyr for Christ, you left us an Epistle in the New Testament. With good reason many invoke you when illness is at a desperate stage. We now recommend to your kindness Kim, who is in a critical condition. May the cure of this patient increase her faith and love for the Lord of Life, and for the glory of our merciful God. Amen.
