My Close Friend
A friend I've had for over ten years just found out she has a tumor.

I am not what most people would think of as a Christian and I try not to pray unless I feel I really need to. I am trying to be strong for my friend, but I'm finding it hard to do because I'm feeling scared and angry.

My close friend just found out she has a tumor in her pituitary gland. She's been having related problems for over ten years already, so I'm thinking it has probably been in there, growing, for quite some time. She is being put on a medication to regulate her hormones and shrink the tumor, which may or may not work, for the next two weeks. If things aren't closer to normal by then, she'll require brain surgery.

I'm not one to try to tell God what to do (i.e. asking him to heal her or something - because I believe everything happens for a reason) but I believe in the power of prayer and positive thought having a positive or healing effect on people.

My heart hurts for her, because she is having to go through so much with her health while she is still so young. She is a very loving, light-hearted, supportive person. I've already lost a few people in the past couple of years and I'm not ready to face something like this with someone I'm so close to.
