|Nicole, Me, and Allison|
This week cancer is one again attacking our family hard. On Sunday our precious sister-in-law Allison lost her beloved grandmother to pancreatic cancer. Mrs. Christine Paris fought so hard over the past few months and it was amazing to see her family rally around to care for her during this battle. Our faith tells us that even though cancer claimed her earthly life, she received the ultimate healing and stepped into the presence of her Savior for a joyful, pain free eternity. The Paris family is devastated over the loss of their matriarch and we ask that you lift them up in prayers as they prepare to say goodbye to Mrs. Christine, a strong, beautiful woman who will be deeply missed.
Over the past two months or so we’ve also been processing the news that our selfless, caring, funny, all around amazing father has prostate cancer. Dad will undergo a radical prostatectomy tomorrow, September 11th. His cancer is of an “aggressive” nature, but with prostate cancer even the aggressive forms are slow growing, so our hope is surgery will be curative and no radiation or additional therapy will be needed. For Nicole and I it’s been very emotional; we have every hope that he’s going to come out of surgery fine and that this will just be a bump in the road, but we remember watching what our Mom went through and it’s scary to even think of the possibility of anything similar happening to our Daddy.

Please lift up our family, our sister-in-law Allison and the Paris family this week. Cancer is strong, but faith and prayers are much stronger.
