Wayne’s Story

Site created on August 9, 2020

Wayne was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma cancer. It is a cancer of the plasma cells in his bone marrow. Within 4 days of diagnosis, he was already on chemo and in full fighting form! This page was created as a way for family and friends to stay informed on Wayne and Marnie's journey, and most importantly, how you can be praying for them as they walk this road. We know we serve a faithful God and He is carrying Wayne and Marnie through this all. We also strongly believe in the power of PRAYER and we ask that you join us in this fight. Please pray for strength, stamina, and healing... and a peace that passes all understanding. 

Newest Update

Journal entry by Megan Fordice

It has been a while since we have updated. The rest of October has come and gone as well as the entire month of November. I guess we will go with no news is good news. We hope that your Thanksgiving was filled with family and good food. 

Wayne is continuing to take one day at a time and build back his immunity. He had a virtual visit with Dr Waugh and it was great. She said labs look fantastic and thinks he’s recovering well. She contributes his daily exercise as a big factor. The one test they’ll rely on is Light Chain and it’s normal. Some tests were below normal, like platelets, but she feels it’s because he’s still recovering.

If things continue like this she’ll just look at lab work every month and not schedule visits as often. She expects this to be the norm for two years. Wouldn’t that be great?
And when the cancer returns she says there are so many new treatments to choose from that it might even be hard to decide which one to go with.
And eventually…..a cure?

We’re feeling very blessed!

We thank you all for your continued prayers and support of our family! God is good.
