A former boss of mine, her name is Louise, went to the doctor on Monday and they immediately scheduled an MRI for her. Yesterday they did surgery to remove a tumor from her brain. They hope they got it all but it was a stage 4 malignancy (the worst kind) so there isn't much hope. She was about 5 years away from retirement age and has a husband, two children and 3 grandchildren. At this point, there is going to be radiation treatment and pain killers to make her comfortable but the doctors are holding out no hope for her.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers. Thank you.
