Laura & Friends

Quick Update:

Laura: I am slowly recovering from my last chemo treatment. I finished my home IV fluids today. I am feeling much better, just very weak. The weakness seems to last longer with each treatment, so I continue to concentrate on resting and trusting that God is in charge of my time schedule! "How weak?" you may ask... it took all my strength to open a can of biscuits this morning. Seriously. I had to sit down afterward! Two treatments to go! Please keep praying!

Bruce: Bruce is cancer-free! He has completed his chemotherapy treatment and just enjoyed a well-deserved cruise to Cozumel with his family. Please pray for his follow-up care and continued good health. Your prayers have made the difference!

John: John has been approved to be part of a drug test. Please pray that this new drug will effectively shrink John's tumor, and please continue to ask God for a miracle of healing.

Stacey: Stacey went back to teaching in November. She was doing well until recently when she developed abdominal pain. On Christmas Eve it was discovered that her cancer has metastasized to her liver and her lungs. She had a new port put in this week and will begin aggressive chemotherapy, fighting for her life. Please continue to pray for God's miracle of healing, for courage, strength, perseverance, trust, and hope for Stacey and her family. She needs you now more than ever!

Thank you for your faithfulness to pray! Please don't stop!

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12


  1. Dear Laura,
    I know I shouldn't be, but I am very angry about what has happened to your friend Stacey. Didn't she receive a PET scan initially to check for just this type of cancer spread? I would have hoped that they would have been very thorough in her initial diagnosis and aggressive with her breast cancer chemo. I will pray for her, you, Bruce and John. There are too many of us in the "cancer diagnosis club"

  2. By March you will be opening cans and cans and cans of biscuits and making morning Monkey Bread out of them without needing a break!!!

    I will pray for Bruce, John and Stacey. Our prayers do make a difference.

    Thank you for the update. KEEP RESTING

  3. Still praying for you, and extending the effort to your friends

  4. Hi Laura,

    WOOHOOO!!! ONLY 2 to go!!! Praise God!!! I pray that you will grow stronger each day and that the next 2 will not be so bad!!! I pray the chemo is obliterating EVERY single cancer NEVER to return again!!!!

    Phil 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

    I pray that as you leave 2009 behind and press on through 2010 that God will give you a renewed spirit.

    Love ya!!
