A promised update on Wes…….

Sherelene and I joined Rhonda and Wes and my daughter, Wes’s sister Catherine at the doctor’s office this morning.  The Hematolgist/Oncologist treating Wes said that he has T Cell Lymphoma.  The good news is he is young and strong, and it is in the early stages.  The form he has is quite rare and very aggressive, but the tratment will be an equally aggresive regime of chemotherapy.  Wes and our entire family are ready for the battle and we know God is on our side.  Wes wanted me to be sure and tell all of you how deeply he appreciates your support and prayers and how humbled he is to have such a large family of friends praying for him.


I believe that with faith in Him we can win any battle and that is what we intend to do here. It is at times like this, in life when tough things happen, that you treasure most your friends and family and we are happy to have you all as a part of our family.


Once again thanks so much for the prayers and please double down now.  I promise to keep you posted and expect to be reporting good news!


I send blessings and thankfullness to you,


the pilgrim
