On August 12, Doyle Sager, Lead Pastor at First Baptist Church, Jefferson City, Mo, was diagnosed with lung cancer.
On August 17, Doyle met with his oncologist. The lung cancer is stage 4 and has spread to the liver, bone, spleen, and two lymph nodes. Chemotherapy will begin soon, and biopsies taken to determine the exact approach to be used in containing the cancer.
Janet and Doyle are trusting God through this difficult time and invite you to pray with them and for them. Thank you does not begin to say how they feel about the outpouring of love and support their family has received. Please know Doyle and Janet are simply unable to respond to each expression of love, though each and every one of them is cherished greatly.
Dad finished the second part of round three of his chemo treatment today. Now he has some days off to build up strength before he begins round four on November 4th. Please pray for him as he deals with the side effects. Also pray for his nutrition. Due to chemo, keeping up his weight and strength continue to be the greatest challenges. As always, thank you for all the continued support and love.
