A Wife's Appeal

Seventeen years ago, I was a daughter whose father was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC). He passed away three years later due to complications from chemotherapy. 

A month ago, I am a wife whose husband was diagnosed with NPC. 

Did I ask "Why?" Of course I did. I buried all memories of NPC when we buried our father. I said to myself, "Not again..."

"But Lord, I will trust you..."

This was sent to me by our friend Tammy and I just loved it.

This is a test of faith and so much more. Imagine how the enemy is using my greatest fear to shake my core. The difference now is I have a personal relationship with Christ. And it is all I need. 

As a wife, I am appealing for prayers for my husband's recovery and complete healing. Please cover our family with your prayers. 

It's amazing how the Lord has calmed me down. He assures me even in the small things that He is taking care of us. God has also revealed himself in so many ways. It has never been more clear what God wants me to do.

God speaks to me through different channels. A couple of days ago, he spoke to me through Rick Warren's Daily Devotional "Don't Waste Your Pain."

"Your greatest ministry will flow out of your pain — not out of your strengths or your talents but out of the painful experiences of your life. It is your weaknesses that help other people in their need, not your strengths."
"God can use the thing you hate the most in your life, that you’re most disappointed by, and that you wish had never happened. God says, “You can’t change what happened to you. But I can use it for your benefit and for my purposes. When you’re willing to share your brokenness, I can use it to help other people.”"
And I was bawling my eyes out after.

It will be a challenging couple of months of treatment and recovery. We are holding on to God's promises. We will fight this one.  

We claim healing. My husband will be healed. In Jesus' name. 

As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. (John 9:1-3 NLT)


  1. AMEN! Only love, prayers and inspiration for you and Jed, you are an amazing wife Irms like we always tell you, tightest huggggsss!

  2. Hi Irma. My heart and prayers go for you and Jed. Aside from prayers, I have a few recommendations which I firmly believe will help in faster recovery and Jed's better response to medications. Along with medications, do explore and consider using high quality supplementations which will help strengthen his already compromised immune system and help alleviate negative side effects of the traditional methods such as drugs and chemotherapy if he will undergo such. For 14 years now, I have been managing the health of our entire family (including my aging parents, 76 and 80 years old) with good quality supplements which really do wonders to our general health. No hospitalizations, no drugs and no serious diseases ever since. The key is providing what the cells need for every cell, tissue, and organs for them to function properly and keep the entire body healthy.
    Jed needs to strengthen his immune system to help his body cope with the side effects of drugs and help his body respond better to medications. PM me of you think you are open to recommendations.
    May the Lord grant you the peace only He can provide at times like this, wisdom in every decision and grace to bring you through everyday.

    1. Thank you so much Mina. It was so good to see Jerry here. I thought you were with him. I will PM you in FB.

  3. You have my full support of prayers and love, Irma. I am reachable if you need me. Hugs to you.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Jed. I am always a call away if you need someone to talk to.

  6. We are praying for you and your family. Keep standing strong in Jesus!
