moment. She looked good, but she was in some pain at
the time. Good news is later in the day we received word
that she was feeling much better! God is good!!! Update 11/3/16: Elaine is now home and recovering. She is said to be in excellent spirits! Please continue to pray for Elaine!
Louise - Recent January scan suggests Louise is Cancer Free! Let's continue to pray that her scans stay that way!!! 9/2016 Just finished Radiation this past week! Prayers for a healthy recovery would be greatly appreciated! UPDATE 10/2016: The first few weeks after finishing treatments have not been easy. Fatigue and general weakness still plagues this amazing little woman. Please pray that her upcoming visit to the doctors at the end of Oct brings good news. Gifts of Cheer has visited
her a few times since September and helped her with
her continued need for occassion transportation and company. 11/3/2016 Louise has a bit of a setback this week. She was not looking so well. Doctors confirmed she had an infection in the breast. Please pray for Miss Louise to have a speedy recovery with lots of love surrounding her.
Gene - Haven't heard for Gene in the last two weeks, we'll be touching base with him soon! Pray he is well!!!
9/2016 Undergoing Chemo for ORAL Cancer.
He is a survivor of prostate cancer. UPDATE 10/2016: Gene is now in week 3 of his treatment. He has oral cancer, and he had surgery that removed half of his jaw, cheekbone, and removed an eye. The first two weeks of Chemo went relatively well for Gene with the main frustration being the inconvenience of daily trips to the hospital. Now, in week 3, mouth sores, a burning tongue, difficulty swallowing, and overwhelming fatigue are taking its toll on Gene. Please pray for him to have faith, continue his treatments, have comfort, and renewed strength. If possible, a full recovery would be great!!!! Let's pray for Gene! UPDATE: WOW! We've been driving Gene back and forth to his treatments now since Sept. Only 5 left to go was the last we heard this week. Can't wait to see his special day of leaving the treatment center. Please continue to pray for Gene! Many thanks!
