We wanted to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our family, friends, and partners for helping us walk through these past six months with Ron's serious health issues. We are so grateful to report as of this Friday morning (September 1st) that he is cancer free - no chemo/radiation treatments - and he is on his way to a full recovery…. at 80!!!
We know all of this was a gift from God and an answer to the many prayers that people have prayed. What a Faithful and Great God we are all privileged to serve and know! Thank you all!
Ron & Kathy
Ron recently went through triple bypass surgery that was unexpected, as well as having two holes in his heart repaired. He is recovering from that, but was still not feeling well. Due to a medication, he was sent by ambulance to Billings with internal bleeding. As the doctors were trying to figure that out, they discovered that he has colon cancer. They will be doing surgery to take out 12” of his colon, his appendix, and the lymph nodes and blood vessels around his colon. If the lymph nodes test positive for cancer, he will have to undergo chemo and radiation. The doctors told him today that this is just the beginning. Ron and Kathy have been missionaries for almost 50 years, often times paying out of their own pockets to keep youth camps and training seminars going.
Any funds donated below will help to cover travel and hotels costs, as well as some upfront medical costs, in Ron's battle against cancer.
