Tammy Faye Bakker: Treatment has been stopped

Following up on the One Punk Under God reviews and her son, Jay Bakker, it appears as though the end is not far off.  My prayers and thoughts go out to Jay Bakker and his wife Amanda and the Bakker family.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Tammy Faye Bakker, the disgraced televangelist whose reputations was rehabilitated through a documentary and reality show, has penned a goodbye letter to her fans in which she says doctors have stopped treating her cancer.

“The doctors have stopped trying to treat the cancer and so now it’s up to God and my faith. And that’s enough! But please continue to pray for the pain and sick stomach,” Tammy Faye wrote in a letter to her “faithful friends” on her Web site.

“My precious daughter, Tammy Sue, and her wonderful friends are staying with me,” Tammy Faye wrote. “They don’t want me falling down the stairs. I am down weight wise to 65 pounds, and look like a scarecrow. I need God’s miracle to swallow.”

In 1996 Tammy Faye was diagnosed with colon cancer. In 2004 she learned the cancer had returned, this time in her lungs.
