4 September 2010 - Special Prayer Request and Thanksgiving

Matt Alcantara, age 15, has Osteosarcoma (bone cancer), a very rare and often lethal form of cancer with limited treatment options.  After about 18 months of treatment, all his scans are clear and Friday 3 September 2010, he had his chemotherapy port removed. This with a disease that is about 90 percent fatal in that same time period.  He has no hip joint on one side, but he walks and swims!  Courage?  Guts? You bet!  Thanks be to God for the way things have gone.  Thanks also for the great faith of Matt and his entire family.  Their faith and trust is a wonderful example for each and every one of us.  But, now is not the time to stop praying.  Actually, it never is the time to stop praying!
