Our Brother Needs Your Help.. Stage 4 Lymphoma

NEW UPDATE ..  9/9/17    Jim and Kathleen talked with the doctor on Wednesday 9/06/17  . They had told him  he had  Diffuse large b-cell lymphoma stage 4 non-Hodgkin's - He needed  four other tests, then to  return  on the 20th to assess the data and form a plan,  The doctor said  80% make it 5 yrs.

Friday Jim went in for a bone marrow extraction and while he was there the doctors said they got more results back from his previous test in the hospital. The doctor stated that it is worse. The kind of Lymphoma he has is a "double hit" and it has caused or is causing mutations at the chromosome level.  Since he had that information he requested additional test on the bone marrow they  took to see how far it has spread. 

We ask that you keep Jim and his family  in your prayers and also help spread the word in helping us raise the funds necessary for all the additional expenses and test he will need.

Please share on your facebook page and by email if possible and THANK YOU  to all who have donated on this fundraiser or who have sent money directly OR just shared this.  




8/18/17

Our brother Jim was told that it was urgent that he check in to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical in Dallas, TX.

The Doctor told him he has a Tumor on his 5th rib (which normally starts in other areas besides the ribs) and that a Tissue Mass was found to be behind the rib. He also informed him that he had water on His lungs and the blood test indicated possible issues with the liver.

The Doctor mentioned to Jim that he might want to start a Fund me page for all the extra expenses that he will be incurring.

First and Foremost - Please pray to our Lord for Jim for healing, peace for his family. Pray for the Doctors and medical staff that will be caring for him going forward.

Jim who has helped so many - now needs our help. As some of you are aware Jim and His Friend Terry Blake developed this "In His Step" website to allow people to help each other and Honor God. Now we need to use this site to help Jim.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

We will keep you updated on his condition and please spread the word.


UPDATE: Well as of 8/18 1:45 pm - He is still waiting for them to drain the water off his lungs and they are trying to schedule the MRI.  They stated they do not want to do a Biopsy until they see what is going on exactly.    

They are not sure so we will wait until all test are back in to update - this may be early next week.

But God knows all - so keep those prayers coming for Healing please!  and Thank you so much!

Thank You
