Please Help Nicole, A Mom of 5 Who Is Having Brain Surgery…

Nicole, Fred and family
Nicole, Fred and family

Please….calling all prayer warriors! We need your help.  Nicole is the daughter in law and sister in law of some very dear friends of mine. She is undergoing brain surgery right now as I am writing this post. She is in Boston, MA at a major hospital and it is hopefully a benign 5 cm tumor at her brain stem. She and her husband Fred have 5 children all under the age of 8 yrs. When she entered the hospital on Monday, November 24, 2014, Nicole was 14 weeks pregnant. Sadly, they lost the little one the same day she was admitted to the hospital.

The surgery started at 10:00 am today, Tuesday, November 25, 2014.  It will be several grueling hours of surgery by a team of highly skilled surgeons. Each will be taking about a 3 hour turn in surgery. She may be in surgery at least a minimum of 8 hours.

We need your prayers and we need any monetary help you can afford at the link below. It is a “pay it forward” fundraiser. The money raised will be paid for Nicoles’ medical bills and her recovery which will take at least a year, in the best of circumstances. Please share this link and help by praying and any way that you can possibly help.  Your effort will be praised and appreciated by many who love them and care about Fred, Nicole and their family of 7.  I promise to keep you posted on her progress.  The link is below and your prayers, again, are much appreciated.  If you could possibly Say a mass in honor of Nicole and/or special intentions, a candle….anything is appreciated. We are warriors in prayer and the Lord said in Matthew 18:20 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. 20“For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

Thank you for any and all help given….any and all prayers, special intentions and any amount of money donated. They are a family of 7 on one income and Freddie, the husband and father of the 5 children, is a teacher at a Catholic University called Christendom college. They need this help for her recovery of up to or exceeding a year of rehab  not foreseeing any extra challenges.
