UGH! Our Cancer Journey

You may or may not be aware of the cancer challenge we face as we end this year and head into 2015.  I’m fighting esophageal cancer and Sheri’s lymphoma may have come back after five years of being free.

We know you are inundated with emails from many people and organizations and can’t follow everyone.  So we’ve set up a special Blog site, journaling our Cancer Journey only for those who want to follow us in that way.  It’s NOT Thrive Mentor, but one that focuses specifically on our cancer updates, as well as some thoughts we’re having along the way.

If this is of interest to you, please OPT IN to our cancer blog in the following way:

(1)  Click on the link below.  That brings you to our specific Webpage.
(2)  On that page in the right column you’ll see a sign up box under “Follow Our Cancer Journey.”
(3)  Put your email address in, and the code when it pops up, and finally a link will show up in your email box asking you to “opt-in.”

Our posts will come in two forms — information about what’s happening to us on the cancer front, and secondly, some of the thoughts we have along the way.  This format also allows you to weigh in with your thoughts as well.

Already I’ve been quite challenged about the whole area of healing and the wrestlings with this, as I consider my healthy body in every way, except for the unnatural tumor growing in the esophagus.

As for Thrive Mentor, I am going to keep blogging on Missionary Care and issues related to that as well, hoping to help Christian workers thrive in their environments and ministries.

We trust you are enjoying the Season we’re entering, and giving some reflection time to Advent.  And thanks so much for your concern and prayers for us as we walk this road ahead.

Holiday Season Blessings,
Dave & Sheri
