    Please pray for my sister in laws partner Geoff as he collapsed yesterday. They thought he had a stroke but after tests and MRI scans they have discovered that he in fact has a very large tumor on the brain. Please also pray for my sister in law as she is getting Cancer test results this week too. All the indicators are as yet positive for Cervical cancer. This is very devestating to them both and neither will be in anyway able to care for the other. Thankfully they both have grown up children from previous relationships so no young kids are involved. If Geoff's tumor is malignant he may only have weeks left. If benine at least a minimum of 2 yrs recovery and he will never go back to his work. Oes

    Thanks for the prayer

    Geoff is in intensive care so we are hoping that they may be able to do something for him. Right now if he moves his speach is slured and he loses movement in his limbs. It is all very worrying indeed.

    Ann is still waiting her result.

    Thanks to all - it all seems pretty grim at the moment for my sister in law and her partner.

    Just wanted to update you all who have been praying so much for geoff and Ann.

    Geoff passed away on Tuesday evening. It was expected as he had been very ill for a longtime.
    My Sister in law and her partner Geoff were able to get away on a lovely cruise at the end of last year. So that was a good memory. The cancer care staff have been very helpful and Geoff has had a relitively good last year.
    Ann is coping well and the funeral will be this comming week.

    Thanks for all your paryers.

    Oes
