Friends,

Two of our fellow members here at OC.net, Jovan and Alexandra need lots of prayers, and also any assistance you can give. They quite literally 'met' here and now have a family together. These are not strangers, but rather part of the crazy family here.

from the linked page below: Shortly after giving birth, Alexia was suffering from many symptoms-high fever, aching body, nausea, chills, etc. While a course of antibiotics seemed to help, after finishing them, she was sick again. Doctors were unable to figure out what was wrong.  After many doctors visits and testing, Alexia and her young family received devastating news: she has stage four colon cancer that has metastasized to her liver and possibly her lungs as well.

There is more info on the situation on the link. Please consider at a minimum, praying for them, and giving what you can to help them.

May the Lord have mercy on them! 

A number of the mods have contributed, and we do support the campaign being listed here.  By His grace and our cooperation, we hope they can find the medical treatment they need, and a way back home.

Is she the young one that was married a couple years ago or so?  Through the intercessions of the Theotokos, St. Panteleimon, St. Luke, Lord have mercy!

I am so sad about Alexia and Jovan, I hope everyone is praying for them.  I haven’t been so sad since I found out some relatives of mine had passed away.  But there is still hope here, so we have to pray.

I don't usually do this, but I'm bumping the thread so it gets back into the stream of consciousness.  May the Lord bless Alexandra and Jovan and their children, and may He reward with His grace all those who help them in any way (prayer, material support, etc.).

Please continue praying for our dear Alxandra and her husband and children as we approach Holy Week. 

Kyrie eleison.
