Need prayers

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Dear Editor,

We need all the prayers we can get. In 2007, my wife Donna had a brain tumor and she had surgery and most of it was removed.

About three months back, she was informed she had bone cancer, and so the doctor started chemo for her. After we visited the doctor yesterday, he explains to us that the chemo is just like a bandaid.

So now she needs a bone marrow transplant, but as he explained, this may or may not work, but it will be worth a try.

The doctor's office will contact us on when we will have to travel to Omaha for her transplant, and we will be spending at least two weeks there.

Prayers we need, for I have no idea where I will be able to stay while we're there and prayers she needs for there is no guarantee the bone marrow transplant will make her cancer-free. It seems like we have no choice just take a chance.

People go to the food store and make choices of what kind of bread to buy or what kind of meat to buy, but there is no choices on whether we have cancer or not; seems like fighting a loosing battle.

In 2006 I lost my wife Barb to cancer after being married for less than two years and now my current wife Donna is faced with this cancer and she will be 65 in February and life is just too short, so prayers we need, for if she survives this transplant it will be a God's miracle.

I thank you every one for your prayers.

Kevin Dunn,

Holbrook, Nebraska.

If you are at Clarkson/University hospital, check out the Nebraska house at the hospital.It is cheap, and perhaps they have financial aid if needed. Bless you and your wife Kevin.
