8th April 2016: Latest News on Ray

Ray completed his 6 months of Chemotherapy at the end of December.  He then had a CT scan and the scan told us that Ray is cancer free!  However, in his review with the Oncologist, it was recommended that he have a 5 and a half week course of Radiotherapy, which he started in early February – this involved Ray taking three Chemo tablets morning and night and attending hospital daily (Mon-Fri) for the Radiotherapy, completing the treatment in mid-March.  When he had a review about 4 weeks into the treatment, the senior nurse who specialises in Chemo and Radiotherapy asked Ray all the usual questions re: side effects and when Ray replied that he didn't have any she said, “That’s AMAZING!  You are sailing through the treatment."  Funnily enough before Ray started the radiotherapy he saw himself on a big yacht sailing through very calm still waters and he has kept that picture in his mind throughout the treatment. God is so good.  Ray will continue to have reviews and tests over the coming months, but we are so thankful to God for his faithfulness to us and for the words that he has given us.

We are so grateful to all who have supported us both practically and prayerfully over the last year.  It has been good to know that we have so many people praying for us and sending messages of love and support.  Thank you, doesn’t really express how we feel; we love and appreciate you all.
