Second opinion

John and Sarah are looking to get a second opinion from Sloan - Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY. The doctors from both Arnold Palmer and Sloan - Kettering will converse to work out when would be the best time for Ellie to go.

Ellie had her blood tested today and although the platelets were a little low, they did not give her a transfusion. They will be taking a few extra days to watch her levels to see if they are up just because of the transfusions or if her body is able to maintain. The schedule as of now is to begin the second round of chemo on Monday.

Ellie's doing well and is enjoying time with family and occasionally a friend.

Please pray:

1.) For Ellie's healing and that her blood levels would maintain.

2.) For John and Sarah to have comfort, wisdom, and direction.

3.) For Ethan to feel secure and comforted.

4.) For financial provision, especially in regards to Sloan - Kettering.

Dear John and Sarah,
I am a friend of Dave and Jeanne Bell. I have breast cancer and am being treated by Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez in New York. www.dr-gonzalez.com It is worth your time to investigate what he does. He is a real doctor but also treats cancer using enzymes with a high degree of success. Probably everyone and their brother is giving you advice right now, and I would not add to the burden if I didn't think it highly valuable. I could not be more pleased with the care I have received from Dr. G. Feel free to call me: 321-917-4620. ~Michelle

Dear John and Sarah,

My husband and I are praying for you and dear Ellie. I was just reading Michelle's comment and want to also encourage you to look into the enzyme therapy. Also, a website that was helpful to me when I was diagnosed with advance breast cancer was www.cancertutor.org.

We will keep praying.

In Christ, Dori
