Need prayers

I have no siblings, but one of my cousins is the closest to a sister one can have. She turned 71 in March.  She's been diagnosed 2 years ago with breast cancer, but due many associated diseases (she recovered from a stroke when she was 48), the treatment for breast cancer was not very aggressive, no chemo, no radiations.  Her last blood tests and MRIs are revealing metastases in the liver, lungs, and in 2 vertebrae. She's been put on Tamoxifen, and Zometa (to prevent bone loss and potential fractures due to metastasis).  She had the first infusion yesterday, and today she called me in horrifying pain, telling me every little bone of her body hurts.  Tramadol was prescribed for the pain, but I feel so hopeless, being away, and not able to hold her. Her 2 daughters and husband are around her, but I wish her pain will diminish soon, and she'll have the strength to accept the next infusion, in 30 days...
