Lisa Kennedy (3-24-19 rh):  In April 2018 Chuck advised us that his wife Lisa had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Over the next several months Lisa was treated with radiation and chemo therapy.  After completing the treatment, Chuck stated in October that the treatments had been successful and Lisa was doing great.  This last week Chuck advised that Lisa’s doctor advised them that tests indicate that some type of cancer had returned.  Further tests will be required to determine where the cancer is. Please keep Lisa and Chuck in your prayers.

Jon Devore (3-24-19 rh):   Cheri, Jon’s wife, shared with us that it has been 4 weeks since Jon completed his radiation and chemo treatments at M.D. Anderson.  She said that she thought she would have seen more progress by now, he is still not able to drink or eat.  He has lost 6 more pounds in the last two weeks.  She says everyone they have talked to that has had this cancer says it takes at least a month after treatment before you start improving.  He will have another CAT scan in about 4 weeks to see his status.  Everyone please continue to lift up prayers for Jon and Cheri.

He reports this evening that all went well with minor blockages in some areas but not requiring stents.

Please keep Doug in your continuing prayers.  Update: (3-29-19 nf) Doug was released from the hospital Wednesday afternoon and is recovering at home. He will meet with his surgeon within weeks to discuss serious blockages in his legs. Doug invites your ongoing prayers.
