Precious family and friends,
Philippe and I just met with Dr. Michael Bevers, the head surgeon who operated on me April 14, and received the great news that my pathology report came back with confirmation that the removed tumor was entirely contained and the margins clear. He was absolutely amazed by the rapidity of my recovery - a wonderful opportunity to give glory to God and testify to the power of prayer! He told us that mine is a very unusual case and rather uncharted territory for the MD Anderson team but that he is still inclined to recommend no further treatment. He will once again take my case before a board of MDA doctors on Thursday to get a final consensus, but expects that this will be the plan. I will then have checkups every 3 months with Dr. Bevers.
I know that you and others on six continents have bathed me in prayer and rejoice that we together can give all glory, honor and praise to Jesus our Healer. For those of you who have agreed to serve as "captains" to share the news with others in your realm of influence, feel free to copy and paste this message.
Thank you for the love you have demonstrated to Philippe, Paul and me through this "bump in the road." We thank God for you.
Always in the love of Jesus,
