Pray for...

Pray for Joni Eareckson Tada. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be undergoing surgery tomorrow.

Christian Newswire reports:
AGOURA HILLS, Calif., June 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Internationally-beloved disability advocate, artist and quadriplegic Joni Eareckson Tada has been diagnosed with breast cancer, it was announced today by Doug Mazza, Joni and Friends International Disability Center president and COO, following confirmation by her physicians.

"Joni is to undergo several more tests, followed by surgery within the week," said Mazza. "The extent of the cancer will not be determined until the procedure."

[...]

Following surgery, Joni will receive treatment based on the findings. "Thankfully, my quadriplegia does not significantly impact either the surgery or the treatment. I'm like any other woman who has breast cancer," said Joni. "I want to pour all my energies into getting better." 

Updates regarding Joni's health and progress will be posted to the "Joni's Corner" section of the Joni and Friends ministry website atwww.joniandfriends.org. Well-wishers are invited to post assurances of their prayers and encouragement to Joni and her husband.
