The Right Thing

Remember to pray tomorrow as our hearing with Scott and White is here at noon. We feel that this is one last chance for them to do the right thing and see how rare and life threatening this cancer really is and that the studies show the best long term prognosis for patients treated in high volume centers like MD Anderson.

Our prayer is for justice to be served.

No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:
to do what is right, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

We also feel strongly, with lots of support, that we have done the right thing by choosing to continue fighting for the treatment that studies show will give me the best chance at life. As much as we hate confrontation, this is our right thing. Pray the words we speak would not only be truthful but seasoned with grace and light.

Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out. Colossians 4:6

This is just a reminder to keep praying as we prepare the facts over here. I will update you tomorrow afternoon with the results.

Thankful for you all,

Lisa I feel you are so very right trying to do the right thing while respecting others. Hopefully your insurance company will recognize the truth and see things as we do. I pray they let the bottom line go, not worry about profits and help a client in need. I am praying for you and your family always.........:-) Hugs

Hi there! I am new to your blog. I literally found it by accident, and I have come to believe the Lord led me to your site. I was drawn to your site for several reasons...we're around the same age, and I see that you have the same aspirations as me, in that you love to write and speak and want to share what God has done in your life. Most of all, I have been drawn to what comes across to me as a true, deep, abiding, intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, and I find that very refreshing. I have been drawn into your story of battling this cancer diagnosis, and I have been in much prayer for you. I admire your courage and perservance and honesty as you navigate these deep, dark waters and cling to the faithfulness of our God. I think of where Jesus told His disciples to go with him "to the other side" of the sea. The storm came and threatened to overtake them, and Jesus was asleep! His disciples panicked, of course (I know I would!) but I recall how Jesus had *promised* them that they would make it to "the other side". Oh, to cling to that promise while in the midst of life's storms!

I am praying for you, to make it safely to "the other side" of this storm in your life. I am believing God that He has a future and a hope for you, and a platform from which to reach many. He is using you to do that even now.

Praying for you...

Your new "friend",
Kimberly

This so important to hold up before the Lord in prayer.

Father------

We wait on You to speak to these people on behalf of Lisa and her life. Would You intervene on her behalf? Would You be her advocate in this situation? Would you surprise everyone and allow them to agree to pay for every desired treatment options?

In JESUS' Name we ask this Father.
Amen and AMEN!

Written notification. Lovely.
I'd love to be surprised, just once, by a fluidly working bureaucracy not hamstrung by their fear of litigation. Cowardly. (Originally I wrote "cowards", but I changed it because this is never the timbre of your blog.)

Say ,say, my playmate.

Love,
