  • Mar. 24, 2021 - UPDATE - Matt Jones

    Update from PGK Wayne: Matt and Sandy met with Dr Roger Stupp the Neuro-Oncologist at Northwestwern in Chicago. He said that Matt is an ideal candidate for a clinical trial of two new Chemo treatments in addition to the standard protocol. Matt and Sandy agree that Matt should be part of the trial and have signed up. He will undergo several weeks of treatment in Chicago starting next month. The medical focus is on extending his lifespan and quality of life. Sandy and Matt will have our full support.  
    Let's keep praying for them as Matt undergoes several weeks of treatmernt.
    Update from PGK Wayne: The pathology report categorizes Matt Jones' tumor as  Gioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). There is no cure. Matt’s initial consults with the neuro-oncologist and radio-oncologist are set for next week. My daughter Sandy, Matt, and the kids Ben and Emmy are processing all of this and they need our prayers now more than ever.
    Prayers are requested for PGK Wayne Gallant's son-in-law Matt Jones.  Wayne just learned  from his daughter Sandy that Matt is having emergency brain surgery Feb 24th for a suspected blastoma mass in the brain.  He was given the Sacrament of the Sick but it looks like Matt may have cancer.  Please pray for a successful surgery and complete recovery.

    Jan. 15, 2021 - UPDATE - Annette Beasley
    Bob Beasley and Chris’s daughter, Annette  is improving in that the muscle deterioration has not progressed.  Her attitude has remained the same and she is now sleeping better at night.  She continues to receive steroid therapy and treatment to improve her immune system.  She heard from Johns Hopkins this morning (January 15) and was told she has tested positive for “SSA”.  Further research as to what this term means is being researched by Annette.  I suspect  it has to do with a compromised immune system; more will be revealed.
    Please pray for continued overall improvement and for correct diagnosis of her condition.  Bob and Chris are extremely thankful for our prayers for their daughter.
    Brother Bob Beasley’s daughter, Annette, was diagnosed as having Dermatomyositis (an autoimmune disease) but the treatment for this has not helped so it is assumed there is another underlying cause.  Consultation with Johns Hopkins hospital has resulted in other diagnostic tests and, though cancer has been considered, there is no evidence of any yet.  She has been taken off all medications except for steroids with which she is now treated.  Please pray for a definite diagnosis and appropriate treatment soon.  And pray for consolation for parents Bob and Chris and for the stamina and faith to bear under what must be a huge amount of  worry and stress.
