We learned this afternoon, Wednesday, August 19, the Mayo Clinic report on our nephew Brian Duty’s brain cancer. It is Stage 3 Aplastic-Astrocytoma. Treatment will include radiation and chemotherapy, the latter for one year. 28 days between each 5-day treatment. Not sure on the radiation duration.
Obviously for any of us this is horrific. Brian’s 32nd birthday was last Sunday.
Please include Brian Duty, his parents, Dale and Cheryl and Brian’s brother, Paul, in your prayers.
We love them and will do whatever we can to be a caring presence. And hopefully. In the journey Brian will know, as I’ve relayed before, he is not a stranger to God and God’s promise to be with him this moment and all moments that are to be and beyond…will always be kept.
Prayer is more than conversation with God and redemption from isolation. It is a powerful manner in which we reach out to Brian and let him know we are with him. Without hesitance or compromise. So be it.
