The Story

When we took Henry to the pediatrician on Thursday morning 5/4/17, we never imagined we'd be moving him into a room on the Oncology floor 48 hours later. His CT scans show what appears to be a large cancerous tumor near his liver, above his kidney. The doctors have told us it is stage four neuroblastoma. We will have to pursue aggressive treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, and radiation, as his condition is advanced and has already moved to other areas in his body, including in his bone marrow.

Please continue to pray for our boy, us, and our other children as we process and move forward into this thoroughly unexpected journey. We are leaning on your prayers as we are understandably overwhelmed.

God gave us 2 Thessalonians 3:16 yesterday on a t-shirt that was given to Hank: "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you."

06/17/2018: After a quick weekend home, we are back for more immunotherapy. This week he will be getting a double dose of meds. Last time he had the double dose he experienced some eye issues. He will be getting a half dose this time, but I am sure it will still be a hard week, medicine wise.

Please keep Henry and the family in your prayers. Double weeks are extra hard, with more time apart as a family. We are already tired from the previous week, so pray for an extra batch of peace, perseverance, and patience. 
Next week, I am leading a group of almost 50 students and adults on our summer mission trip to Rockport, TX. Please pray for our team and the people of Rockport who are still recovering after Hurricane Harvey. This year my older 2 will be with us on this trip, which is great. 
Thank you all for your continual prayer and support as we are moving into the world of remission. We are excited for that, but will also be nervous of a resurgence. We will continue to trust that whatever happens, God is good and will be with us.
