My dear friend, adopted son, his momma left him to me wink she passed away 5 years ago. Hers started with cervical cancer, but ended up with sorosis of the liver. She was a beautician, and would never ware gloves when she handled the chemicals.

Brandon is 36, over a year ago started with cancer in his lungs and lymph nodes.

Seem to get better, then found it in his liver.

Went through some rough times. They were using a chemo on him that just maintained. His blood work was great. He actually looks healthier now than the whole
time I've known him :- he was 12.

Did another scan today, it has spread to his bones and brain

He doesnt look sick, except he is swelling. God can do anything anytime. I pray if he is going home, the Lord does it swiftly, while he is healthy, in his sleep.

He is SB, and is going on a mission trip to Peru in a couple of months. Lord have mercy!

Prayers for Brandon, that he be cured of this dread disease and that God grant him many years.

They have placed him on a new chemo that seems to be helping.

It just bogs my mind, he has been a short distance truck driver for years. You know God's hand is on him! The doctors are letting him work one day a week if he feels like it.

His mission trip is the end of June. He will be sitting in a doctors office sharing his testimony. The others will be doing the long treks, which there is no way he can do. Should be really interesting experience for the people he talks too!
