Although I am reluctant to share something so personal on a message board, my wife Renne' (Polamalu Princess) and I have discussed her situation and feel that the need for prayer is too great not too share her situation and ask for your prayers. It looks like Renne's cancer is back. She had a biopsy earlier this week and we will know the results within 7-10 days. There is also a family history on both sides so needless to say we are very concerned. So if you could please put Renne' on your prayer chains, your daily prayers, or just close your eyes and pray for her right now, we believe it will make the difference. Thank you.

Renne is most definitely in my heart and in my prayers and I will light a candle for her at Mass tomorrow. If there is ANYTHING at all that either of you need, please just ask. I emailed Renne my cell number and will always make myself available.

Stay strong and believe in the healing power of the Lord. :hug::hug::hug:

I just prayed for her and your family. I prayed for her recovery, but whatever happens it is the lords will, do not fear, you will ALLWAYS be together.

4 days ago I was allmost killed in a motorcycle accident. A driver ran a red light and I ran my motorcycle into the side of the van at about 50mph. The last thing I remembered was trying to lift hy head from the road and the feeling of blood running down my face. I said a prayer as I blacked out. I woke up in the hospital just as I was entering the MRI. Even the police said it was a miracle I survived. I was in the hospital 1 day...1...day. I have a few broken bones and some bad cuts and bruises but the lord truly saved me. I pray he will grant your wife the same blessing sir.

Thank you as well, they most certainly were with me, the nature of the accident and the fact I survived with what injuries I do have is nothing short of a miracle. Even the Chinese police said so, and the Chinese are known for speaking much about that kinda stuff.

I feel my prayers have been answered, now lets hope this good man's wife will be ok, and the lord will see fit to grant our prayers for her.

Thank you all for your prayers. They are greatly needed and appreciated more than you know. We feel like you are all our brothers and sisters. I'd like to suggest to Steelwall that he start a prayer thread for his wife if he is comfortable doing that or let us know if he would like her to be placed on prayer chains. I don't know the details but it appears to be quite serious......

It's beyond football rivalry or politics, or anything so trivial.....I am hoping to get over to www.browns247.com to thank everyone for their prayers as well. :hug:

:hug:God Bless Ya Renne. I just pray right now that God will touch that spot on your body that you are concerned about and that he will take that spot away from your body and destroy it. I pray Jesus that Renne know you as Lord and Savior this afternoon and if she doesnt Lord, I pray that you convict her heart to accept you as her Lord and savior right now at this very second. Lord I pray for her husband that he will be or do the same and that he will be strong for her and be able to give her the love that she is gonna need in these times of need. Amen
Renne ... God says to call on him. give your heart to Jesus if you havent already please. May God Truly Bless You and Your Family

We all have been blessed,in that we have lived,if we have loved,while we live,we have more blessings to speak of.If we have been loved,while we still live, our story, is untold of yet. When my time has approached,i will know.    Only the lord our "God" has the key. What he dictates,so shall it be. Keep your faith,and your prayers,and your love ,close to your heart.    For you never know when it all,may be taken away. Feel the worth,that you have to give,and do not think of what could have been.
PRAY right now! I think she is gonna make it sir,she has a lot of prayers reaching out right now.
No man should ever take for granted,the things that he loves.Try to never be guilty of that!
It could hurt later on!!!!
May God shed his grace on you,and your loved ones.

First of all I just want to thank all of you for your very caring prayers with my situation. I have fantastic news with some bad news that is so wonderful. The type of cancer I have runs in my family. When I first had the biopsy the doctor really did not give a lot of hope, when I had further tests, I was given just grim faces...

Then there were so many prayers, so many from all of you here on SF and God took control and heard all the prayers. I am not out of the woods and have to be on some nasty med's and have a life long treatment, BUT I am only in the BOTTOM of the first stage and I can do so many things to control the situation.

Tom and I both feel so blessed to have all of you in our lives to be our Steeler Fever family. Prayers work and I can tell you tenfold that I felt your prayers - No question about it. I and Tom both know that there was such a grim report prior to all the prayers, but God prevailed once again.

Thank you and thank you again.

May God bless you and keep you in His loving care,

Renne'

PS - MINE, MINE, MINE - Tom will know and all of you can just smile at that!!!

Yes, I thank every single one of you that gave me hope and encouragement during this difficult time. You are all very much appreciated. It is wonderful news that the results came back benign and for now there will not be another surgery. Prayers work!

Thanks again!

I'm pretty new here....Well, new to posting anyway, and haven't gotten out onto the best foot (politically that is)...but I read all 9 pages of this thread and more than one post brought me to tears....
I am so glad that your wife is well and healthy. You two must be very special people to receive such an outpouring of love and support.
God Bless you both!!!!

Thank you so very much. It has been a long road, but God is good and brings so many special people into our lives when we need them the most. Thanks again.
