Dear all my wonderful family and our wonderful, wonderful friends I am asking today for your prayers. Kim has been confirmed to have stage 4 breast and bone cancer. Kim has been in terrible pain for months and was finally given an MRI this past Saturday after many X-rays, doctors and ER visits, physical therapy etc.. On Monday the doctors read the MRI and called to say that they saw cancer tumors on her spine. We were by God's great grace sent to Dr. Mark Graham who confirmed the MRI results. Dr. Graham performed a breast exam on Kim in his office and he determined there were several masses of concern. He rushed Kim into an emergency mammogram with Dr. Burke (who was awesome) and she confirmed that Kim had a mass in her left breast and two lymph nodes that appeared to be affected. This week has been a whirl wind of other doctors appointments - waiting by the phone for results - CAT scans, PET scans, a brain MRI - biopsies - more waiting by the phone. We have been so very blessed to have our family (Anne Price and Billy Price , Pam Price Redding, Patricia Horne and so many others) and dear, dear friends (including the INCREDIBLE Mary Zahn and Bill Zahn who we will never be able to properly say thank you) by our side and with us each and every minute. God is GREAT and Kim WILL beat this! Kim and I know the power of prayer and are humbly asking for each and every prayer that you can send to us. Kim has a very long, long road ahead of her but we know that she can beat this - her attitude is great though this has been very tough to take. I am at a loss for words as Kim is EVERYTHING to Julia Anne and I - she is the most wonderful wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend that anyone could ask for. A very good friend B Grant Yarber said that if there was anyone who deserved a miracle it is Kim .
