Prayer for Trudy Rideout's brother, Corey
Trudy has asked the church family to pray for her brother Corey who was diagnosed with Leukemia 4 months ago. He has been receiving intensive treatments, and while the cancer is responding, his blood counts remain very low. He has another 7 days of chemo to go leading up to a bone marrow transplant on Aug. 31st. He is a Christian, just 45, and has a wife and two children who live in Edmonton, but he will have to be in hospital in Calgary for 3 months, which is an added burden. He is understandably concerned about the procedure, distance from family, his blood counts and the side effects that the doctors have described. This is a family that needs our prayer support in this difficult time.
