A Call for Prayers

My brother in law found out Friday morning that he has colon cancer. Not sure yet but it may have metastasized to his liver. He and I went to school together and are the same age (both 44 this year) so we have known each longer than I have known my husband (his brother). He has two kids that are 14 and 16 years of age, and a family that loves him very much. Any prayers sent his way would be greatly appreciated. He and his wife are probably going to have a rough time of it for a while with treatment; it is still so new that he hasn't even met with an oncologist yet. Luckily hubby works at the hospital where he will be receiving treatment and it is likely that, as a pharmacist, he will probably be mixing his chemo. Please just keep him in your thoughts and prayers right now.

A friend of ours got the same kind of cancer 1.5 years ago while he was in his 30's. After he finished his last treatment and 2 days after he got his portal out, he went on a 5 day backpacking trip with our Venturing crew. He was determined and practiced walking around his neighborhood with a half loaded pack every night for months while he was getting his treatments. He even worked his chemo around our Venturing campout schedule. He's been cancer free for over a year, and is getting married later this month. Good luck to your BIL.

F'in Cancer ... speaking as one who knows. Sadly, though, most of us "know" one way or another.

I'll certainly include your brother-in-law and his family in my thoughts.
