5/01/2018

Update! 

GREAT GREAT News!   God is amazing and we are so blessed ! 

Jim had his last PET scan and it it showed he is in COMPLETE  remission!!  He doesn't even have to see the doctor till mid June and he does another scan every three or four months! Thank  You Lord !   WE are so happy and thankful for everyone who helped support Jim and sent well wishes and kept him in their prayers.  He is VERY thankful to all of you.  Now Time for celebration  and he can resume working on his books.  



4/27/18 - Jim went for his Pet Scan today and we should have results in a few days.

God is so amazing and we know He will restore him.

We will keep you up to date and Thank you for all the out pouring of Prayers, Support, Friendship and Love

God Bless you!

Update - 2/22/18.

Jim has been doing good - he is still in a lot of pain. Had his chemo treatment and a CT scan a few weeks ago and He received the results on Valentines Day 2/14

The CT was compared to the PET scan when he started chemo and it showed the tumor has shrunk significantly! Amen Thank you GOD! YA! and Thank you all for your prayers! Keep them coming.

He has his last round of chemo in March then he will discuss with the Dr what the next options are. He is still in a lot of pain and they feel this is from the ribs being deteriorated but the tumor but he remains positive.

He is looking at a machine that will assist in helping to growing the bone back that he learned about - so hopefully can get this.

He still has a long road ahead of him and also will need all the help he can get with more procedures and test ahead. Again thank you for your continued prayers and donations.

We will update in early March.

3/09/18. Jim completed his final round of chemo this week. His scan showed an”dime size” tumor left which is incredible! 

In approximately four weeks he’ll have another scan to see if it is completely gone and if not what would be the next step.  They are confindent the tumor will be eradicated 100 %. With your continued prayers and help we know we can he can reach that goal.

Update 2/01/18

Sorry we haven’t updated in a while. Jim has been handling his chemo treatments pretty well. He’s on his 4th treatment with two more to go which would take him into end of March. He is scheduled for a CT scan on the 5th of this month to compare to previous PET scan.  Saying lots of prayers that the chemo is shrinking the mass. We could use all the prayers ?? possible!  He is in a-lot of pain but struggling through in hopes that it is attacking  the cancer. Lots of rest, good fuel for the body and doing whatever it takes to beat this. 

Thank you to all who have donated and prayed. We still need your help though. Lots more test and uphill battles so if you could share this post or can help in anyway it would be much appreciated. We love our brother very much and will do whatever it takes to see him healed

Thank you God for hearing and answering our prayers ??????

Thanks again in advance. We will update the site as soon as he gets his results from test.

Update 12/10/17

 

Well a lot has happened 

 

When Jim was at the Center in Florida Jim had went for some blood work up and they notices Jim’s Calcium going up and some others going down so they sent him to the Hospital.

 

They worked to get the levels ok so he could fly back home.  Once in Texas they checked in at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton.   

 

Here Jim would be for 15-16 days

 

He was placed in touch with a Doctor willing to work with the Insurance they have.

 

The test showed the Tumor had grown in size and is located on Jim’s right side of his mid torsos area and showed that it had grown over to the front of the chest and is covering the right lung.  It had also deteriorated the ribs on the right side causing Jim to be in great pain.

 

The Doctor spoke to Jim about the treatments he felt that Jim had a great chance for a great recovery.  He stated that Lymphoma’s’ are much more treatable then a lot of other cancers. 

 

They would put a port in to be able to administer the chemo directly to the area of need.  He would have a total of 6 rounds.  The first in the hospital and the next ones as an outpatient in his office next to the hospital every 3 weeks. 

 

The Doctor was surprised to see how well Jim’s body was reacting to the Chemo. 

Amen Thank you God!

 

Jim feels that all Organic Naturopathic items he was doing before and still is lends to helping in this whole situation

 

Week of Dec 4th Jim had went in for a CT scan and this showed that the Cancer is confined to this area only- 

Thank you God!    

 

Tuesday Dec 12th he will go into the office for the second dose of chemo.

 

We all continue to thank you so much for your support and prayers for them.

Thank you God for hearing all the prayers!

11/11/17  UPDATE

 

Jim was admitted to the West Palm Beach Good Samaritan Hospital on Thursday 11/9 because the day before the Hippocrates where he was saying they did a blood draw and noticed his calcium level was high at a 17 – and are working to get that down.

 

He was hoping to be released today to go home on the flights they have booked for today. 

 

However everything that is being done has triggered a drop in his Potassium levels to a 2.9 – and now they are working on this to get this to a level the Doctor feels that he could release Jim from the hospital to fly home.    

 

Please keep them in prayer and lift him up for healing and Kathleen for peace and strength as well.

­­­UPDATE:  11/4/17 

 

I wanted to post an update about Jim for those checking the site:

 

Jim & Kathleen did a lot of research and decided to head to a facility called Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida.

 

The Institute has a Comprehensive Cancer Wellness program

                                                                                                  

http://hippocratesinst.org/comprehensive-cancer-wellness-program

 

 

“An internationally recognized holistic health program that can be integrated with standard medical care to maximize the potential for getting well and staying well. “

The CCWP is a state of the art Health and Wellness Education Program incorporating approaches for optimizing health.

This adjunctive approach for integrative oncology is a signature model that has been designed to be fully integrated into the 3 week Hippocrates’ Life Transformation Program and is scheduled regularly throughout the year. Nutritional Medicine, NeuroScience, Functional and Regenerative Medicine, along with Personalized Stress Management are used to restore the health & balance of the autonomic nervous system are the domains of this leading edge prototype that has been developed to demonstrate the future trend in Cancer Wellness Programs for Healthcare. Dr. Hranicky integrates her clinical expertise and research from pioneering the field of PsychoNeuroImmunology and Cancer for over 30 years, having worked with thousands of people with cancer and having trained thousands of doctors from all over the world with O. Carl Simonton, M.D., & the Simonton Cancer Center.

 

Jim and Kathleen left and have been at the facility since Oct - and are scheduled to leave on the 11th

Jim’s schedule here is quite busy.  He is still in quite a bit of pain and has lost a bit a weight.  Kathleen has been with him – though she is not allowed to stay at the facility with him, she is nearby and goes by each morning by 8 or earlier to assist him with the day and heads back to a local hotel in the evening.  

 

We ask you to please continue your prayers for Jim & Kathleen. 

 I have listed his address if you would also like to send a note to them as well.

Again we can’t thank you enough for your continued prayers and support during this difficult time.

 

May God Bless you!

UPDATE:  10/8 My apologizes I did not have this up sooner.

 

Jim and Kathleen did return back to the doctor on 9/20 and the doctor went through with Jim and Kathleen the results of all the tests that came in and what type of treatment they felt he would need. The bone marrow test showed it had not spread to the bone marrow, but it was still a "diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, stage 4, non-Hodgkins" and test showed it was not a "double hit" type, but it was rather "double expressing" (which is still bad but not as bad as "double hit") and it is very aggressive.

 

Given the test results, the chemotherapy that would be needed would be very radical and the cost would be about 50,000 every 2 or 3 weeks. But since medical sharing plan Jim has is not technically "insurance" they were unwilling to work with Jim and suggested he find a facility that could work with him and his health plan.

Jim and Kathleen through prayer and guidance from the Lord knew they needed to look at all options available for Jim. With much prayers and the beginning of much research that is still ongoing, they have decided to seek out a natural, non-toxic approach to his healing, one that helps his body's immune system to restore his body to help

We ask you to please continue your prayers for Jim & Kathleen.  I have listed his address if you would also like to send a note to them as well.

We thank you for your continued prayers and support in this battle. 


 September 06, 2017

    Jim and Kathleen headed to the doctors today to go over the test results below is what they know at this time 


 We ask you please to help us reach our goals and more so for him 


Diffuse large b-cell lymphoma stage 4 non-Hodgkin's - I need four other tests, then return on the 20th to assess the data and form a plan, 80% make it 5 yrs.
