Rev. Alex Slonin is asking for prayers for his daughter, Alexa Slonin. She was being tested for rheumatoid arthritis because of pain throughout her body and the extreme fatigue she was experiencing when the doctors discovered lymph nodes around her lungs and a growth on her lung. She is waiting for a biopsy. Also, she is undergoing tests to see if she has sarcoidosis, which is a severe autoimmune disease. Alexa is the head chaplain for the Bon Secours Hospital Hospice Services in Richmond, VA.
The family has approved the release of this information.
