Please Share your heart and prayers....

My niece began a journey this week that has shocked and stunned my entire family....we are in such need of prayers for this special girl. She is 21 years old- such a bright, energetic college student.
This week, she fell and a bruise formed....but after a few days, it got rather large and then started bleeding...and so her journey had begun. She spent three days in the hospital, and has now seen several specialists. Their best guess is that this tumor is cancer.
They did a needle biopsy on Friday, and she will have results back on Monday. I am just itching...crawling...to just scream and wake up and find this to all be a bad dream. Putting her name and the word cancer in the same sentence is painful...just awful. I ache for her...for my brother and sister in law...for her siblings....for my parents. I WISH THIS WOULD JUST GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is nothing we can do right now but pray and stay positive. No matter what she faces, she is a vibrant, positive person with incredible support all around her. She will rise to greet whatever comes her way...and she will do it with her spunky, fun sense of style! This is her journey- and I will be there supporting her with every step. I pray that it is not difficult, and that she can heal quickly and then get back to school and the life she loves so much. Please Dear God- show her your mercy. I AM BEGGING!
I just don't know what to do. I want to fix this so badly.
I know I will find comfort and strength knowing that God is hearing from a lot of you in your prayers of support for our sweet Stephanie. Thank you from the bottom of my frightened, saddened heart...this is so important to me, and I really appreciate you understanding that and sharing your heart with me and my family today.
