8/31 Dave’s Testimony: Covid, Cancer, Chemo, and a Dizzy Fall… Surviving with Great Love from Family and Friends

Two weeks ago: My son Nick tests positive for Covid. Our family friends from Florida have been here. No one else is sick, except our son. He got it at work. Quarantine time. We do a great job, but two days later my throat is on fire. I cough. I test positive.

6/3 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer, Chemo, Clots, Credit, and Chaotic Car Conversations

This week is the 4th course of chemo. There are IV fluids, iron infusions for anemia, and a new side effect... annoying hiccups. Last off-chemo week, Dave didn't feel as well at all. Chemo is cumulative; meaning my husband will probably feel worse, and have to endure more side effects, as he continues treatment for … Continue reading 6/3 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer, Chemo, Clots, Credit, and Chaotic Car Conversations

It's Mother's Day... and it's different this year. My husband has cancer, and it's been chaotic.

5/6 Dave’s Testimony: Hurricane Cancer Rages in the Eye of the Storm, Yet Blessings Rain Down

This happened last week, but was left unfinished. Dave and I both want to tell this story, because people need to know cancer is a beast, even if you know Jesus. But it's more bearable if you do! Currently, Dave's on his second round of chemo, and he's hanging in there. That wasn't the case … Continue reading 5/6 Dave’s Testimony: Hurricane Cancer Rages in the Eye of the Storm, Yet Blessings Rain Down

4/21 Dave’s Testimony: Prayers Weave a Greater Web than Cancer… Chemo Time

It's chemo time for my husband Dave, who is fighting a rare stage four intestinal cancer. It has spread all over inside his small intestine and beyond, within his stomach and colon. All biopsy and genetics tests are back. The source has been found to be the appendix. Ironically, it can't be removed, yet it's … Continue reading 4/21 Dave’s Testimony: Prayers Weave a Greater Web than Cancer… Chemo Time

4/17 Dave’s Testimony: Roller Coaster… Easter Joys in Fighting Cancer

I find it interesting that my husband has been diagnosed with rare stage four cancer; and it's all happening before Easter, my favorite time of year. It's a time of new beginnings: when beautiful irises come into bloom, when Dave and our boys have played electric and acoustic guitar and drums in the church worship … Continue reading 4/17 Dave’s Testimony: Roller Coaster… Easter Joys in Fighting Cancer
