I got another phone call telling me that the mother of another friend passed away this morning. Allyson's mom had fought with bone cancer and was in remission (I think). But, apparently chemo really can damage your immune system and she had a pretty bad case of pneumonia. Allyson got the call to come to ICU about 8:00 this morning, and about 9:00 her mom Caren passed away peacefully.
Please keep Allyson and her dad in your prayers.
