My son had kidney cancer early this year and he had the kidney removed. He had his 6 month check up they found 4 spots on his liver. Please pray for him.

Oh dear! Of course we'll pray for him.  How old is he?

I shall certainly keep your son, Bryan (along with my sister-in-law, Marjorie, also suffering with cancer) in my poor prayers.

I have a son-in-law, Bryan, in Sacramento, California, who took the name "Seraphim" (after St. Seraphim of Sarov) when he was Baptized into Holy Orthodoxy, so the name "Bryan" (with that spelling) is easily remembered by me.

 want to thank you for your prayers,I feel like they are working. My son Bryan went to his specialist for the first time yesterday, she is sending him to John Hopkins for a new scan and a biopsy. Since his type of cancer is so new and she can't find anything on it she wants to start over from the beginning. She said  it was found very early because he has no symptons. The doctor said if he needs experimental treatment he may need to go to Texas, it sounds like she has a plan. Please keep praying, we still have hope.
