Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
Matthew is also a friend from J-5. Matthew relapsed a couple of weeks ago, just as the family was preparing to leave on their Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World. For Matthew, the family decided to proceed with the Disney trip and begin treatments immediately upon their return. But it soon became clear he was not going to be able to handle the trip. They returned to Ohio, and Matthew is back in treatments. He is having a lot of difficulties right now. Please keep him in your prayers.
Ryan is an incredible young man. He made the news again today. We have really enjoyed getting to know him and his family. Ryan continues to fight cancer with all he has. He was taken back to Children's as his temperature shot up and his blood counts collapsed, but is now back home. Please keep him in your prayers.
Mason has received his bone marrow transplant after his Burkitt's relapsed. I do not know how many of you have witnessed a young person going through the transplant recovery. It is truly a treatment that takes them to Hell and back. Mason received his bone marrow from his brother, and is having all the expected side effects. He may be suffering from graft vs. host disease. Please keep him in your prayers.
Sinjin was the second person we meet with Burkitt's (Brett Workman was the first). Sinjin has beaten several relapses with Burkitt's. He is now having a very difficult time, and the cause is unknown. New scans have been run, but the results are not back. Graft Verses Host Disease, relapse, and many other possibilities have been discussed without any conclusions. Please keep him in your prayers.
