I wanted to take a moment to update everyone on the status of my son. The news couldn't be much better. He had a complete scan on 15 February. Today he was told the tumors are 95% eliminated. Of concern were the tumors in the lymph nodes; however, they have shrunk and he will not require surgery. They have taken him off one of his medications. He will continue two more rounds (two months) of therapy to ensure everything has been removed. Thank God he is on the road to recovery. Again, I want to thank everyone who offered prayers and kind thoughts.

I want to take a moment and extend a sincere heartfelt thanks to everyone who responded to my request for prayers for my son. It was incredible. I heard from people I hadn't heard from in years and others I didn't even know. It's times like these when you realize who your real friends are. The CID is truly a family and when you've stepped away from it for a while you tend to forget.Again, from the bottom of my heart I thank you. My son has gone through several series of the chemo therapy. There have been a few relative minor problems which are generally expected during the therapy and the medical staff at Syracuse University Hospital has been able to take of them. My son's biggest complaint, which is normal, is that he is often fatigued. On a positive note he is responding to the therapy. The largest tumor which was of the most concern in his lungs had already reduced in size from 17 to 10 mm during his last scan in December. He will have another scan on 15 February and hopefully the progress will be equally successful. Again, I thank you all again for your kinds words and prayers.

Don, to my knowledge, our paths never crossed during my 25 yrs with CID (1968-1993).That is immaterial. I'm still praying for your son, praying that God will direct each and every action of every member of the medical staff involved in his treatment. You mention that you are not normally a very reverent person. Now would be a good time to make a change. If I can help or guide you in that decision, don't hesitate to call me. I'm in the yellow book, or on line as email@example.com. Jim Boyd

Those of you who know me know I am not usually a very reverent person. However, under the circumstances I am asking all of you to take a moment and say a prayer for my son (Donald III). He's 25 and was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer. Although testicular cancer is very treatable, his has spread to some of his lymph nodes and lungs, which makes it more difficult to treat. He will be starting chemo therapy within the week. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart - Don Allbright.
