Metastatic Non-Small Cell Carcinoma

Posted: July 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

That’s the diagnosis Kathy just received. After two weeks of testing the results finally came back. During the next seven days the goal is to narrow the offending cancer to its particular source and type. Then an appropriate treatment course may be selected.

It has been an anxious time for Kathy, for our family, and we wanted to give you a little update. When we know more we will try to keep you posted.

In the meantime we are focusing on healing prayer/meditation, right thinking, trusting God, and giving attention to the many avenues of health and support that are so very important. Thanks in advance for your love and care. It means so much in times such as these.

Hope abiding,

    I’m so sorry to hear about this. Thinking of you guys.

  6. J Cy Rowell says:

    My first response was “no, no, no” when Vera told me what she had just read. Quickly I turned to his words myself. As the pastor that you are, Tim, you minister to those who hear the bad-health message by the way you write and what you say. Now I am able to pray “please, please, please, O God, let there be mercy and healing and peace.” Hugs to both of you. Cy

    When Zane received a “small-cell carcinoma” diagnosis, he said to me “Now we know the enemy, we can begin the fight!” That was many years ago, and fight he did! I am keeping you close in my heart, all of you, and praying so as you go through all that lies ahead for you. As you begin your fight, positive thoughts, God’s love and hopeful prayers in the midst of fear are the weapons! So much love being sent your way, I know! Blessings and my love to you. Shirley

All of us who love you are standing with you shoulder to shoulder, you are surrounded by love and prayers and healing thought. Once again I wish you were not so far away, so that I could run over to help in any way that might be needed. We are praying for you and with you as you walk in faith along this new path.
