    Update on Brooks

    Brooks phoned today. He went to the 1st specialist and was told he had maybe 6 months. The 2nd specialist told him they had a new drug, so they are putting a (port) near his collar bone to feed the drug into his system. Then in about 3 weeks they will start Chemo if this shrinks the cancer they will be able to operate and remove it and hopefully get it all. Brooks needs your prayers more then ever for a complete cure. Thanks to all. Norm

    PS I will keep you posted.

    I don't even have words for how sad I am right now. My prayers are with Brooks, Rese and their family. They are wonderful people and have always been a blessing to me.

    Hang in there, Brooks!

    My father went on the new drug and had the port in his neck.

    He had Colon Cancer that was so advanced they had to remove his colon and virtually all his intestines. The drug killed it and was at the doctor yesterday and is 100% Cancer Free, this all happened within the past 6 months. From beginning treatment to today.

    Have faith in the technology and medicines of today.
