An Orthodox friend sent this along:  "I just found out that my 7-year-old daughter Andrea has a brain tumor. After several weeks of her struggling with severe headaches and vomiting, the doctor ordered an MRI. She had the MRI today, and I just received the call regarding the diagnosis. Please pray for my daughter. Lord have mercy!"

She will be having surgery tomorrow morning to remove a tumor the size of a tangerine.

You can see her receiving the sacraments of Healing and the Eucharist at the hospital in these two videos:

Poor sweet girl.  I hope the surgery will help her feel better.  Lord, have mercy on your little handmaid Andrea Mary!

Oh, how sad!

What a sweet child!

I pray her surgery was successful and that God returns her to good health.

Please Lord, have mercy upon Andrea and her loved ones.

Received this last night:  "Surgery went well, they were able to remove the entire tumor, and after the operation, Andrea woke up and was talking normally. There will be another MRI tomorrow, and after that, they'll know more about what they have to deal with as far as side effects, physical therapy, etc. Praises are going up all over the world tonight."

Thanks for the prayers everyone, please continue to remember Andrea and her family!
