edited March 2014 in Colorectal Cancer #1
I'm asking you to join me in prayer for Pam Berg, a family friend in Madison, WIS. Her husband, Mike, died this morning from brain cancer. He had been in hospice since New year's day. He fought it for a long time. When Mike and I could fish together, people would liken us to the characters in the movie Grumpy Old Men. I miss him terribly. Thanks for saying a prayer for Pam, she has a new burden to carry.

Now the good news

I went in for an ultra sound exam and no cancer was found. Blood was also clear. I get an exam every six months. I had a colon resection in Sept. 2008. and have been clear of cancer ever since.

Thanks Mike

P.S. Thanks to all who sent Christmas cards. I'm still getting cards one or two a day. It was great receiving them.
