Cleveland,

Please know my prayers are with you and your family.

I was also told of this by someone on campus within our immediate circle of friends. I only speak of this now so that you know many, many others all around you are thinking of you and your family, and are praying.

Quick update: add jaundice now to the list of his ailments.

Hopefully he'll be in surgery soon to remove the tumor.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS.  May God bless every one that is touched by you in your lives, and may they be witnesses for you before the judgement seat of Christ.

Well, they've been doing some surgeries to prepare him to remove the tumor - so far so good.

Thanks all for your prayers - I know my family and I appreciate it so much.

After a month of no progress, his jaundice is almost gone, the cancer hasn't spread, and so they've now said he is a candidate for surgery again.  I know your prayers have helped, and my family and I thank you all.  Hopefully the good news will continue!

Thank you all for your prayers - he had his surgery today, and they were able to remove the tumor... they will do chemo and radiation on the surrounding areas to make sure they got everything, but he came out okay... the next couple of days are still critical, but it seems as if he was able to make the worst of it!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

You can indeed say that you have witnessed a miracle. Pancreatic tumors are 90% of the time malignant, and there is almost nothing that can be done about it. I have also been fortunate enough to have a miracle like this happen in my family.
