Please help me pray for my goddaughter Charmaine


I’ve been MIA on the internet realm over the weekend as my hubby had booked us a weekend stay at a hotel here. I’m now back where I’ve got more time to use the internet.

On Friday evening, I was shocked beyond words when I received a call from Charlene telling me about Charmaine’s emergency operation of her spinal cord. Charmaine woke up that morning not being able to move her lower body and to urinate. The cancer has attacked her spinal cord and the doctors advised an emergency operation which had a degree of fatality.

Two hours away from Singapore, I kept praying and sending positive energy to Charmaine. When an sms from Charlene came beeping again at about half past ten, my heart was pounding hysterically as my cold hand pressed onto the buttons of my handphone. A wave of relief washed over me when I saw her good news of the op being a success and that char was to be wheeled in the ICU ward.

Right now, Charmaine is in pain especially in her legs and gradually, her wound. Cynthia has asked for fewer doses of drugs and thus, char is beginning to feel the pain. She is still unable to urinate and her nervous system would take some time to heal. She’s in a very foul mood and didn’t want to talk to me over the phone just now.

I ask of all my friends and readers to help me pray for Charmaine’s smoother and less painful recovery, for the tumours to miraculously disappear and for her to be able to move her lower body again.

Your kind thoughts and gestures are deeply appreciated.


I seem to be having problems commenting on some blogger blogs. This is especially so if your comment box is displayed as embedded below your post. I’m not too sure if it’s due to my current location. Does anyone of you experience the same problem this past week? I had to keep logging in and posting in my Google/Blogger name only to be brought back to the log in page again and again. My comment would only be successfully posted on my own blog, on blogs with anonymous-enabled commenting or on blogs whose comment form appears as a full page or pop up form and on disqus as well. For once, I’m thankful for disqus. Rinny, Winnie, Sugar etc whom I’ve always whined to you about disliking disqus, I’m taking back my words now.

Feisty Char needs bullets to fight!


  1. Oh, Jo! I'm so sorry to hear about this *hug*. Much strength to Charmaine, her family and friends, and to you too of course. I'll keep all of you in my prayers...

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about this upsetting news about Charmaine..I will be praying for her and for her speedy recovery from the operation. I have a lot of respect for her in that she is so young but seems to have so much strength despite her illness. I've never had to be admitted to the hospital for anything serious but I don't think I would be able to remain so strong willed if I was in her situation. My heart really goes out to her and her family.

  3. We'll intensify our prayers for Charmaine and all of her loved ones.

  4. im really sad to hear this about your god daughter - my well wishes to Charmaine, you and her family!

  5. I will keep Charlene in my prayers. I hope she, her family and the people who love her strength and courage.

    On Blogger - I think everyone has been having issues. :( I wish they'd fix the problem soon.

  6. I'm no believer in God, but I pray for her nonetheless.

    She's a living inspiration to many of us, hope the pain will go over sooner than expected.

    You take care too, Jolene. Don't let the worriness consume your health.

  7. I'm sorry to hear about Charmaine. I hope she will recover soon. I'll pray for her, you and the whole family to have strenght and keep a faith..

    I don't know what's going on with your trouble. Blogger has many issues like this. Maybe you can find the answer by google.

    Thanks about your comment. I hope you'll find the tube version and like the result(:

    I had the problem with my embedded comment box. I had to change it to a pop-up. Blogger has a lot probs.

  9. Sending strengths and prayers to her and her family. Hoping and praying for a quick and painless recovery.

  10. Charmaine is very stong. From the blog u all have set up for her, i can see that she really wants to live on. A very amazing girl and do send my regards to her wonderful mother and her brother too. Will pray for her and yes, lets hope that cancer will be killed by cancer itself one day like what Charmaine's mother commented. Cheers
