PRAY: Anne Graham Lotz May Have To Stop Chemo After Severe Side Effects

Evangelist Franklin Graham issued an urgent prayer request via Facebook this week after his sister, Anne Graham Lotz, an acclaimed Christian author and speaker, began to suffer serious side effects from the chemotherapy she had just begun this fall.

According to Graham's post, the side effects were so severe that they may "jeopardize whether or not she can continue" her breast cancer treatment.

Lotz was diagnosed with breast cancer in back in August and has kept her many followers up-to-date on her journey, including an inspiring blog post about recently having to shave her head.

"For those of you who have been through this, you know that it is also a humiliating trauma," she wrote. "My immediate reaction was to quote God's words…that God looks on the heart, not the outward appearance. I am so thankful!"

"My heart aches for the multitude of people who have also dealt with this deadly disease," Anne wrote in October when she first began chemotherapy. "Yet I am praising God for His keeping power and for your prayers that I know are sustaining me in a constant state of peace, joy and expectancy of blessings along the way."
