Prayer Agents are available for urgent or ongoing prayer requests. Whatever your spiritual practice, you are welcome to join us in support of our OsteoWarriors, OsteoFamilies, and OsteoAngels.
My name is Mary Bisaga and I am the mother of OsteoWarrior Andrew. Andrew was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2017 at the age of 12 and is currently NED. This diagnosis has had a profound emotional and spiritual impact on Andrew, myself, and our entire family. Throughout his journey, prayer has helped ease the burden of fear and doubt and provided a deeper level of comfort and confidence as we have been forced to cope with the challenges of this diagnosis. Prayer Agents holds a special place in my heart. When Andrew was going through treatment I was deeply comforted knowing there was a community, like MIB Agents, praying for him who understood more intimately what it was like to fight this disease. I am excited to be a part of MIB and Prayer Agents. I hope to help facilitate this same spiritual support for all those who are affected by Osteosarcoma. I firmly believe that with prayer we can find the grace and strength to overcome this terrible beast. “For nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
Maureen is a licensed clinical social worker. Her experience as a social worker, and OsteoMom to survivor Maeve, has provided the knowledge and experience for her to co-develop the Ambassador Agents training program. It is her ongoing pleasure to train new AA to be the best peer visitors for new osteosarcoma families. She looks forward to the next Ambassador Agent Training sessions - if you are a year out of treatment, please consider taking the training.
