Last update

We got the pathologist's report today: Stage 4 Glioblastoma. The doctor said 6-18 months. This is not acceptable and we will be going to one of the major centers, quite possibly the Anderson Center in Houston. There is a wealth of information on the internet and they are doing amazing things in the field of cancer treatment and Steve will be one of the long-term survivors. Pray for Steve and Kim because they have a long road ahead of them, but he is a fighter. Thanks.

Oh my, tears came to my eyes when I read this! I'm so sorry. I'll be praying for Steve, Kim, the doctors, you, for healing...for everything. I belong to a National Prayer organization...could I put a prayer request out on our prayer list? Let me know.
