Ben’s Story

Site created on November 4, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. 
Ben was diagnosed with left testicular cancer on Friday afternoon. It started when he complained about soreness in that area. After going to the doctor Thursday, we were instructed to go to ER. The ultrasound showed that they were very concerned with what they saw and  went to the Urologist on Friday. The told us from the blood tests is highly likely that it is testicular cancer (on the left) and must be removed asap. CT scan set for Monday, surgery is set for Wednesday Nov 7th. Its a journey we never expected, but God has allowed for His grand purposes that is always good! He is faithful to complete what He has started in Ben, in our family and there is no other choice but to trust Him, to surrender to Him, to offer up our lives in humility to Him! Don't know the outcome or roads we will take, but we are sure of one thing, God is leading and He has great plans for His glory and our growth in Him! Thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and love!

Its been awhile since I've updated on any news and now I have some.....Great News!!
Ben had a CT/US and labs on Wednesday last week. It all came back CLEAR! Not even any spots left on his lungs.
Can't be more happy for him!!! Continue to get scans/labs every two months until next March, then every 3months for another year.

All praise goes to our Glorious God! Who can compare with one!! He sits high on His throne ruling in all power and majesty!  So thankful to God for all He's done and is going to do in Ben's life!!

Ben has recently felt God moving Him to get going with things in his life, such as work, school and has been inspired to think about some future job careers, possibly in law enforcement. He has also felt God nudging him to get serious with His relationship with Him, which is the best move ever!!

Thankful again for those who have been praying for Ben, his recovery and future endeavors as God guides his feet wherever they shall go!

Encourage you all to run towards our loving Father with all your strength, mind and spirit as He leads you wherever your feet go as well! Blessings to you all in the awesome Name of Jesus!!
