I just found out my mother who is a prior cancer survivor has recently gotten her cancer back. So I'm at home right now spending much needed time with her, I have completed the rest of my debates, and will return shortly, however, now that her cancers returned her chances of survival fall from 75% likelihood to 54% likelihood. So, hopefully it never comes to this, but if she is going to die I would like to spend some much needed time with her. (Obviously though we're hoping she lives.)

Anyways, I know I'm an atheist on here, but any prayers you send my way and to my mother, I would greatly appreciate it (she's religious I'm not but I use to be, so I'm not hostile to a kind gesture)

Anyways, my two last debates are in my signature, so if you'd like to vote on them please fell free to do so when applicable. However, I just wanted to say if I do leave, goodbye to everyone on here and thank you for the fun times. Hopefully I'll be back to terror ... err ... debate you folks again! ;)
Thank you for voting!

I don't know you very much Hitch, but I wish your mother the best, and hope she survives this bout with cancer.

Cancer is a terrible thing, and shouldn't happen to people. I lost my Grandfather to cancer a few months ago. I hope you don't have to feel pain like I did. I hope she isn't in much pain.

Sorry to hear that. I'll definitely try to keep her in mind when I pray,
(This is the 2nd time in about a week, that a relative of a DDOian had a cancer recurrence.)
You might be interested in this site http://www.cellslider.net..., basically it's crowdsourced cancer research. You don't need any experience or expertise, you just analyze cells and classify them. It's to help researchers deal with data overload.

I've got a Bible study and prayer group every Thursday. We'll pray for you and your mom. I'll pray for you and your mother on my own as well.

A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name"s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.
