I’m very thankful to be able to give you guys an update on Wes!!!  This week he started his fourth round of chemo and met with his oncologist/cancer specialist and they reviewed his most recent scan and blood work.  Her response was, “I’m tickled pink!”  She told Wes that if you wrote the story of how you wanted this to go, his story would be better than what you would have written.  She encouraged him to stick with it and that he was well on his way to winning this battle!!!!!  I’m thrilled to share this with all of you because this is your victory too!  Your prayers, your care, your concerns, gifts, cards, emails of encouragement have all moved God’s heart and we give all the credit to Him!

 

Wes has two more rounds of chemo after this week, then he will rest for a couple of weeks before going to Markey Cancer Center in Lexington for a bone marrow transplant, that is the final step and it is to assure him that he is cancer free and his own blood can rebuild itself.  That will be toughest part of the battle but we believe we are heading for a great outcome!  Please continue your prayers and when we finally celebrate a final victory you’re going to be a big part of it!

 

I could never tell you how deeply I have been touched by all of your responses, Wes has been moved to tears on several occasions just knowing what an army has been praying for him.  Our family will never, ever be able to repay you for your joining us in this fight!

 

Wealth comes in many forms, but true wealth is friends and brothers and sister like you!

 

Jim and Sue

 

Now I have a giant additional request!!!!  My dear brother and sister Jim and Sue Haverstock are facing cancer themselves.  Sue has been diagnosed with and is being treated for cancer.  She has had three chemo rounds and is preparing for her fourth.  She is doing well, but, as all you all know, chemo is not an easy path and some days are better than others.  You will be heartened to know that their faith is strong and that they are going through this like the champions that they are, but please lift them in your prayers.  Pray for great progress for Sue, for strength to face the day to day fight and for Jim as he steadfastly supports her.  I know of no finer couple and they have been constantly in my prayers, please join me!!  Let’s win this battle together!!  My prayer is that God has this and we can rest in Him.

 

Blessings and thankfulness,
