What a Difference A Week Can Make

This week has not brought the good news hoped and prayed for, but there is still so much to be thankful and grateful for. I want to ask each of you to be be in prayer for Mattie Powell's family. Mattie had gone home on hospice with no others options a couple of months ago. Today, Mattie went home to be with Jesus and her other St Jude friends who have gone before her. Please keep her family and the extended St Jude family in your prayers.

Also, another request... Please keep Mikey and Dina in your prayers. Mikey had his scans today and found out that the tumor has returned. They will be making some very tough decisions in the next few days, I ask that you please pray for them and for God's healing on Mikey. Please pray that they will have clear guidance for the decisions they make and also that they have a complete peace with their decisions. This news has been very devastating to them as well and many of their very loved St Jude family. I would also like to encourage you to please click on his link on this page and please leave them a message of encouragement and let them know you are praying for them. This is a much bigger thing than you can possible realize. Thank you.

LIttle Trevor and Morgan both come in tomorrow for check up appointments. Please be in prayer for their safe travel and for excellent reports.

Jack will be coming back on June 7th for his final scans. Please be in prayer that these scans will still show no evidence of disease.

I want to ask you to please be in prayer for Ryan. He was to begin a new protocol for his cancer that has relapsed this week, however he is not feeling well, running a low grade fever and seems to have a cold and pink eye. They have returned home to wait for him to get over this sickness then return to begin his treatment. Please keep them in your prayers.

This weekend is the St Jude Remembrance Weekend at St Jude. Please keep all of the families that will be attending this event in your prayers for safe travel and also keep them strong as they face a milestone in their journey. This is a wonderful weekend of special events for families who have lost a child while a patient at St Jude. It is yet another thing that St Jude does to help families, but it is a very emotional time for the families to come back and get to visit with the doctors and nurses that took care of them. Please keep them all in your prayers during this emotional yet wonderful weekend.

I know there are so many more out there who need our prayers. Our God is so good, He can hear all of our prayers and has the power to answer all of them. God is in control and we must learn to let Him be at all times.

Don't forget the registration for the marathon. We all can be a part of helping in our own way to find a cure.
