Jon's story: JANUARY THRU JUNE Jon had a colonoscopy on January 10th 2020 which was clear except for something that was pressing against the outside of his colon and viewed as a lump on the inside. The doctor thought it might be a fatty tumor. A biopsy was taken later, then on March 27th the doctor informed him that he had a rare form of a slow growing cancer that manifests typically in 20-30 year old males. Jon is 60. His treatment plan started on April 14th which involves fighting it with 5 days (10pm to 5am!) of IV chemo administered in a hospital (2 miles from our house!! God is good!) then no treatment for 21 days, then one day of outpatient chemo, and another 21 days of no treatment, rinse, repeat for 10 rounds (each stretch is a round).
Here are our many blessings! Our family and friends who are praying for a miracle! He is in one of the best cancer treatment centers in the country! The doctor is a foremost specialist in this type of cancer! Other states have stopped chemo for some people including trials; ours has not! I can see him everyday from the parking lot! He is very disciplined when he puts his mind to it and will do everything he can to fight back. He likes to eat healthy foods! He exercises there for over an hour a day and is in perfect health! He LOVES the LORD! The LORD LOVES him! We have many priest friends who are praying for him! God is not just 'Good' he is supernatural and does supernatural things for us! We are grateful! and praying for a miraculous cure!
