I am asking - practically begging - for your thoughts and prayers right now.

I got a text from Breigh an hour or so ago that her test results from last week came back, and that she does have a brain tumor. They are testing her tonight to see if it is cancerous, and she and her family meet with a surgeon on Monday.

This is all becoming so real right now.
I have never sat in a shower just...crying. My heart is breaking right now. I can truly say that I have never experienced this much emotional pain in my life.

My best friend has a brain tumor.

How do I deal with this? How do I stay strong for my best friend who needs me most right now? What happens now? I have so many questions, and absolutely zero answers.

I am at a loss of what my role is in all of this.
I am praying so hard for Breigh, and for her family right now.
I know I keep asking you guys to keep her in your thoughts and prayers, but she truly really needs this right now. I know she would love it knowing that you guys are thinking of her, and I really appreciate how thoughtful you all are. I love each and every one of you guys. Really.



  1. ♥ Stay strong! I'm praying for you both! xoxo

  2. i love you.
    and what ever happens, just be the friend that you've always been to her.

    hang in there.
    im here if you need anything.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about Breigh :[ My Grannie (my best friend) had a brain tumor last year, I definitely 100% understand what you're going through. But don't lose all hope, I pray that Breigh's too will not cancerous. Obviously, she'll have surgery to have it removed... and it's scary, but medicine has come SUCH a long way. I flew home for my Grannie's surgery (again, she's my best friend also.. ) I was terrified. The surgery was quite a while but she woke up almost right after talking and acting like nothing happened. AFTER BRAIN SURGERY. We were amazed. I pray that Breigh's tumor/experience/surgery will end well and quickly. If you need anything, have any questions, need to talk or anything, please feel free to email me. I know it helps to have someone who's been there. :]

  4. Aww man I'm so sorry to be reading this!! I will definitely keep Breigh and her family, and you in my prayers!! Count on it! Just remember that God's plan is perfect. It really is!

  5. She definitely has my prayers. You got to take it a day at a time. Yes..this is a tough one...a big scary tough situation. There is so much information that you still need to you take it one fact at a time. Every day with anyone you love is a gift. Great health is not a guarentee...and she is young and tough...and so are you. You are gonna walk, eat, sleep, pray, laugh, and fight next to your best friend. There is no other option. Get out the warpaint and know that there is nothing definite going on right now. Push fear aside...and be the pillar of strength for your buddy to lean on. Of course you would cry in the shower....its really scary....but after you give in to that for a little while...know this....your friend is going through a tough situation that people before have faced and beat. Yep...beat. So..I give you my strength, my love, and my support. Please don't hesitate to pop over to my blog and let me know if you need some support. I can, of course, be a pillar of strength for you. Take Care...and know that I pray for your friend...and for you in this time. Hearts, Janna Lynn

  6. if you need anything-you know where to find me. I have a good ear to listen.

  7. Girl, god will provide for you both. Just BE positive. My mom had cancer and not ONCE did I believe it would claim her life. NOT ONCE. And it NEVER DID. So, BE HER STRENGTH when she has none! I will be thinking and praying for you both. Love you girl.

  8. I will be praying for your best friend, and I will also pray for God's strength for her family and for you. Stay strong for Breigh. That is all she needs from you. May the Lord be with you and Breigh.

  9. About a year ago (last September) my mom went in for an MRI and we found out she had a brain tumor as well. It was terrifying and I know exactly how you're feeling right now. Stay hopeful. There's still a chance it won't be cancerous and that's such a blessing. Stay strong, lady.

  10. Two things to help you keep sane:

    1. Breathe. Freaking out is your gut emotion in times like this, and sometimes it hinders more than it helps.
    2. Think positive, even when it sees like nothing is going right.

    Breigh is lucky to have someone so loving in her life as you. Stick by her, but remember there will be days where she will feel so overwhelmed with everything. Let her be those days, and check on her the next. Wishing and praying for the both of you! xx

  11. So sorry it took me so long to comment. The minute I saw this post show up on my dashboard day before yesterday I started praying again for her and YOU as well!<3

  12. Take a deep breath and try to be strong for the two of you!! You're not the only lucky gal in this friendship - Breigh is blessed to have someone like you at her side!!

    You never wouldn't let her down, right?

    I'm praying for Breigh!! ♥

  13. I am praying for Breigh, for her family, and for you. I will continue to pray. Stay strong for your friend. Sending you love and light!
