Lisa Kennedy (6-03-19 rh): Chuck updated us on his wife Lisa's condition and her fight with cancer. We last reported that her cancer count was over 350 in the area of her gall bladder and the cancer was malignant. At that time she was suffering from extreme pain and unable to work.  Lisa has now been able to return to her work and is doing better. She is continuing with chemo, receiving treatments every three weeks. The chemo is extremely hard on her, taking her 3 to 4 days for her to recover after each treatment. Chuck stated that in the next week or so they will do a CT scan on her to determine if the treatments are working.  Please Lisa and Chuck in your prayers.
