The “C” Word Is Back Again!

Dear Praying Friends,

As you remember, my last endoscope biopsies showed the esophageal tumor I still carry in my esophagus, was high-grade dysplasia and not cancer.


My Oncologists, however, felt the biopsy sample was too small and wanted me to have another endoscope with many biopsies.  In their experience the picture of the tumor and the lab results did not match.

So I did a second endoscopy last week Friday (Aug 26th).  The result of those biopsies showed some cancer present.

At this point I don’t have a lot of details about that result, for example, how much cancer did they find?

I meet my Naturopathic Oncologist on Sept 1, and my Allopathic Oncologist on Sept 7.  After those consults I should have a clear idea of what I’m actually facing.

My basic question is, with all the naturopathic treatments I’ve had over the past 20 months, and the prayers of God’s people, is this newly discovered cancer on the way out of my body being overcome by the natural?  Or is it too tough, re-emerging and overwhelming my system?

I don’t know if the Docs can answer that.  But in a couple weeks I should have enough info on the new cancer situation and  treatments to make another faith decision going forward.

Your prayers for gaining correct information, processing the data correctly, and wisdom in decision-making would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for being with us on this continuing health journey!

  4. Hello from Romania!
    I can imagine the question rolling over and over, in your mind and even in your dialogues with people: is it leftovers of the old C or new C kicking in? And I get the chills…
    Until I remember how God miraculously touched our son Caleb’s brain and that was it!… In spite of all tests and scans to the day!… God heals!

    We will pray for the process! And we will pray with FAITH for our Creator – God’s touch to come!
    With love,
