Good Afternoon All,
An update on our Niece and God Child, Doreen, for whom we have been praying. I guess that Stage 4 Cancer can be almost as unpredictable as life but as Jim Smith says, Prayer Works. We visited with Doreen last week, which was very special. She has lost a lot of weight but as she said, that seems to be leveling off and she is more able to eat certain foods. Her MD Team, as she refers to them, continue to treat her with Hormones which seem to be having a positive effect. To us she looks good. The tumor in her brain has been shrunk away. The tumor behind her Eye has shrunk but her eyesight in the Eye is still non-existent and the prognosis at this time has the MDs non-committal but they are dealing with it. The spot on Doreen’s Liver is going to be frozen to prevent further growth (that is positive). At this point, we do not know where her Breast Cancer and Nodes stand. So all in all, some good things happening. Doreen’s Medical Coverage has ended but she was able to transfer part to her Husband’s plan and her Medical Team is working with her to try to keep her covered so we shall see how that goes. If you were to meet this Petite Dynamo, you would see how well she is handling all this, though she feels she could do better and keeps trying. Her attitude is positive, her spirit and courage are an example to all and she is so grateful for your prayers. Doreen’s Mom, Eileen, Doreen’s Brothers, Steven and Robert, her two Sons and Husband continue to be so supportive and of course her Daughter Katie (Downs Syndrome) is a joy. Please keep Doreen and her family in your prayers and keep that volume up. Thank you so much for your prayers. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
