A longtime activist in the pro-life movement is in need of prayer after cancer surgery.
Jeanneane Maxon was treated for a brain tumor just days before Christmas.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says Maxon was rushed to a hospital while she was moving from Washington, D.C. to Texas, where she planned to be closer to family.
Maxon, an attorney, lecturer and writer, had spent 10 years working for Americans United for Life.
At the pro-life group, Sullenger says, Maxon helped build a team of pro-lifers "that has been instrumental in passing pro-life legislation that has closed dozens of abortion clinics and saved thousands of babies lives over her 10 years of work there."
Maxon had resigned from AUL to start a consulting firm in Texas, where doctors removed a tumor the size of a lime.
Maxon has stated on her Facebook page that she is depending on prayer and her Christian faith to make it through the ordeal and a lengthy recovery period.
