Fred has a extremely fast growing and fast moving cancerous brain tumor deep in his front right lobe...glioblastoma multiforme. This causes swelling/edema in the brain which causes weakness, particularly on his left side. Steroids and physical therapy are important for a safer life but shrinking the brain tumor with 3 weeks of radiation and oral chemotherapy treatments is crucial/critical for life itself. Fred's breath prayer that he adapted from the physical therapy breathing techniques is "I am breathing in the Holy Spirit's strength and power and I am breathing out the weakness in my body." Fred's constant prayer is that this season of his life brings Glory to God and brings people into a new relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A daily prayer is that we don't miss any of the deepening and strengthening of our relationship with God throughout each one of our days: with God the Father, with God the Son and with God the Holy Spirit. We pray that He protects our minds and guards our hearts so that we can focus on Him and give Him all Glory as He walks ahead of us and prepares our way and then comes back to walk us victoriously through these moments of our life.
