Scan Update

Dr. Haley (Jessica's oncologist) and Dr. Spangler (her radiologist) personally called Jess this afternoon with the the scan results. I'm pretty sure its the fastest we've ever gotten results and we very much appreciated the personal phone call. Unfortunately, it was bad news. The bottom line is that the cancer has spread to her brain, and the best way to treat it is with radiation. Jess and I go tomorrow morning to meet with Dr. Spangler and to get everything set up to start radiation. We have never been through this before, so we have a lot of questions. Hopefully, those will be answered tomorrow. We are very encouraged that there is something to do and that her doctors are working on a plan. God's peace again sustains us. Thank you for your prayers and offers for help. When we discover our needs, we will post them on We haven't had a need to use it this summer but plan on using it quite a bit in the weeks to come.

I read this tonight at our PTA Board meeting and want to share it with you.

Romans 15:5 ~ "

Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus."

Praying now for your peace of mind, the strength to persevere and encouragement.

The 3-day walkers that walked to your house - in the pouring down rain I might remind you - continue to pray for you (along with some SWA folks)

You are truly an inspiration!
