Katarina Milicevic
"I have three general prayer requests, if that is ok: (1) For my mother, Ivica Milicevic, who was shockingly diagnosed with non-smoker Stage IV Lung Cancer in Nov 2018 at the young age of 61 (she never smoked, drank, etc), that the tumor shrinks and any and all cancer cells are killed and disappear forever, and that she be healed of the lung cancer (and the plural effusion which causes her pain). And for my mom to be open to any spiritual, emotional, mental healing she needs to go through during this journey, as well as becoming more open and a collaborator in her own healing. And for my family, to have courage, patience, faith, hope, and peace and JOY in our interactions, and for me, to have the guidance to know what to do for her, when to push and when not to push, so I can offer the best caregiving I can offer while also finding balance in taking care of myself and not affecting my own health negatively. (2) For my good friend's mom, Vera Miletic, who is currently in the ICU in a life-threatening situation, with a fever after undergoing a transfusion, that she pulls through and goes home to the care of her family. Six weeks ago she went into the hospital with rib pain and since then had 2 emergency surgeries to remove a cancerous tumor from her spine, hasn't regained mobility or use of her legs, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and after the 1st chemo, got a staph infection, pulmonary embolism, and pneumonia, and was then transferred to the ICU and intubated, and now she had the transfusion, and she has spent most of those weeks alone, without visitors, as the hospitals were on shut-down due to a flu epidemic. That after she pulls through and is able to go home from the ICU, she is healed of the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and regains use of her legs and is mobile once again. (3) For the dozens and dozens and dozens of people I have met or read about or learned about in the past three months who are currently battling cancer, or are in remissions from cancer, all of their names are etched on my heart, and I pray for their healing as well. And for all those I know and have learned passed from cancer, that their souls are in peace in Heaven. I ask all of this, if it be the Will of God, in the name of Jesus Christ and for the sake of his Sorrowful Passion. Amen. Thank you, God, in advance. And thank you to America Journeys for praying for us and our intentions. "
