Please Help my GF's DB

Had an email from an email penpal in Canada today. Over the years she has been very supportive of me and mine, and she now really needs prayers for her younger brother. She took him to a local hospital a few days ago when he had difficulty breathing. He had a stroke almost immediately, then they conducted a whole series of tests. They had to take him to a regional hospital that is about 4 hours away from my GF. Poor man is not yet 50, don't know much about him, whether he has family himself or anything. However, he has extreme pneumonia right now, but also has blood clots from the stroke, and extensive lung cancer. Have the feeling that she is alone to support him, so your prayers would be deeply appreciated. Love and hugs, Jenni

Thank you all so much, Karen, Blue and Joan. Was thinking about my friendship with GF, actually met her on iVillage, several years ago when we were both doing one of the iVillage challenges. We hooked up there and have continued ever since. Have told her that I had posted the prayer request and she is very grateful, so am I. Love and hugs, Jenni

Thank you all so much. Just had an email from GF, her DB died a few days ago, when they took him off life support. Thankfully it was very quick - she really appreciated all the thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs, Jenni
