September Update

Dear Friends & Family,
Just to let you know that Matthew's blood counts (although still low) were back up enough for him to begin chemo yesterday (Tues). He'll will continue through Friday and have another treatment on Monday the 8th to complete this 5 day treatment.

I also wanted to share with you that Greg (Matthew's Dad - in case you don't know) had another clean scan last week meaning he's been cancer free for 2 years now. We are SO thankful for that news!

Earlier this year I requested prayer for a couple I met from Hong Kong at Sloan Kettering hospital in New York. Jacqueline has been in chemo ever since and has finally seen a ray of hope in the response to her treatment. I humbly ask for your prayers for she and Stephen as they continue to face this horrible disease. Thank you.

Thank you Nancy for the update on both Matthew and Jacqueline and I will continue to pray for them both. God is good, all the time..

Keep us posted, and when Matthew has a clean bill of health, we will all come to the party.

Bless you all. We will continue our prayers and trust our Father will answer them. You all are a true testimony of God's love, mercy, and grace.

Thank you for the update - we continue to pray for Matthew, you and your family...that is great news about Matthew's dad and your friend. I remember the yearly scans from cancers past and the yearly scans for my most recent cancer and it is a time of great anxiety and then joy when all is well. May you find joy in Greg's latest news and may it give you hope for Matthew's news to come. Peace, John
