A Prayer Request and Email Chain For a Cancer Patient named Nick Doize- Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

This is a prayer request for Nick Doize of Katy, Texas who is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  The email also requests readers add their names to a list at the bottom and forward it to friends.  It also instructs that when the list reaches 1000 names to email it to the originator.

The Truth:

Nick Doize is a cancer patient and has been fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia since February 2006.  Doize was fourteen at the time of his diagnosis.  As of September 28, 2009 Doize is still battling the disease, according to the Dallas Texans soccer team.  The team has been sponsoring events and auctions to help raise funds for his treatment.  Doctors at M.D. Anderson Cancer hospital in the Houston area are exploring the possibility of a second bone marrow transplant for Doize.  

The Athletes for Hope organization, hosted a special “Nick Doize 6 v 6 Invitational Soccer Tournament” which was held on Saturday June 16th 2007 in Houston that raised nearly $18,000 for the young cancer patient.  Click for Athletes for Hope site.

The email chain request is a grass roots campaign.

A prayer request for a Taylor High student.

Special Prayer Request for Nick Doize at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, TX

I am starting a Prayer Signing for my girlfriend’s son who is fighting A.L.L. (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia).

Nick Doize, 16, has been fighting this insidious disease for more than 3-1/2 years. He is a student at Taylor High
School in Katy, TX, but has been homebound for most of his high school years. He is one heck of a fighter and remains positive, despite everything he has endured.

This young man needs all the prayers he can get, because he is trying so hard to take the pain like a man, even though
it is excrutiating.

GOAL: 1000 + prayers / signatures from all over the country/world, so please sign (type) your name at the bottom
of list below, say a prayer, and pass it on to as many people as you trust to forward this on.

Once the list reaches a thousand people, please send this back to me at:  [email protected]

When I get to 1000, I am going to print it, & email it to his parents & him, so that he can see how many people care and
have prayed for him to get better.

If you have a heart at all, you will all do this as a disciple of God. I love this kid and believe the best way for us to help him heal is to do as Christ taught us — Have Faith, Ask, and It shall be Given unto You.

Blessings to you all for your prayers.

Prayer through Saint Peregrine

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.

Or, maybe even you have gone through the struggle and uncertainties of this disease.  While we may never understand why God allows some of us to get cancer, we all can know for certain that God is sovereign and that He loves us through all of the storms in this life.  Here are 6 prayers that you can pray if you are hurting from this disease somehow.


Dear Lord,

I know that You allow all trials to come upon us and I don’t like asking this question to You, but why have You allowed me to get cancer?  I love You and I know You have a plan for me.  I am so down right now and I need You so badly to comfort me.  Please, Lord, I don’t want to leave this world yet!  My babies are so young and my wife, I love her so much!  Please, Father, show me what You want me to learn from this.  I pray that You will heal me 100% from this disease.  May Your will be done in this.  I love You!  Amen

The Unknown

Heavenly Father,

My dad, is he going to make it through this?  I am scared, Lord!  I don’t know how to deal with life without him here and I am not sure if his faith in You is even real.  It saddens me to think he may not be in Heaven when he leaves this earth.  Please, Lord, give me Your peace in this crazy time and allow me some time to talk with him about Jesus.  I ask that You would heal him, Lord.  I love him so much.  May Your will be done.  I love You!  Amen

Getting Better?

O Lord,

The doctors say I am getting better!  I am so happy and excited!  This is all because of You!  You are the one who has given my doctors the intelligence and equipment to battle this disease.  Father, I pray that You would put my cancer into remission for good!  I don’t want any part of it!  Father, use this miracle to show this tiny part of earth that You are real!  I will praise Your name and tell everyone I can, here, about the saving blood of Your Son!  I love You, Father!  Amen

It Is Finished


It feels like I’m dying inside.  My husband, he’s gone.  Lord, I will never understand this.  We are so young; he was only 32 and our children are heartbroken.  Lord, I am lost.  I have no idea how to handle life now.  I miss him so much.  I miss holding his hand.  I miss his laugh and his embrace.  I miss seeing him throw our 2 year old up in the air.  I miss the giggles of our kids as he tickled their tummies.  I can’t do this, Lord!  I want him back so badly.  Please give me strength for my kids.  They need me, but I need a shoulder to cry on too…I’m lost.  I wish this was only a bad dream.  I just want to wake up from this nightmare!  Father, help me!  I’m dying inside!  Amen

The News


I just got the news about grandma.  Lord, I don’t know what Your plan is for her, but I am certain that she will have a room in Your house in Heaven.  I don’t know what to pray.  I love her.  My selfish side wants her to live, but she is very old.  Her pain is great, Lord.  I pray that You would end her pain, Father, whether it be through healing her or meeting her in Heaven.  I pray that Your will be done in this!  I love You!  Amen

I Will Praise You In This Storm

Dear Lord,

I am caught in a whirlwind of emotions.  I never thought I would get cancer.  Satan wants to suck the joy right out of me and right now he has for the moment.  I am so discouraged.  Lord, I trust in You no matter what happens and I need You to walk with me through this!  Lord, I thank You for music and the peace it brings me.  “I will praise You in this storm, and I will lift my hands!  For You are who You are, no matter where I am!  And every tear I’ve cried, You hold in Your hands.  You never left my side and though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm!” (I Will Praise You In This Storm, Casting Crowns) Lord, I give this all to You.  I trust in You and I love You!  Amen


Cancer affects so many people and we will never know why until we see Jesus face to face in Glory.  Please, leave a comment below if you need prayer.  I will pray for you in this very dark storm of life.  God is good all of the time and no matter the outcome, His glory can be proclaimed.  May God bless you as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!
