A dear friend of the Man's, David, has just been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. He starts chemotherapy tomorrow. David's been having some troubling health issues for a while now, but his doctors haven't been able to figure out the cause. Recently, David starting wondering if he had diabetes, so went to get tested, and that's when it was discovered he had leukemia (and, oddly, the leukemia appears to have nothing to do with his other health problems).
David has asked me and the Man to pray for him. I know many of you who read this blog have been known to say a prayer or two, and I would ask that you hold up David for healing and courage, and for God's mercy upon him. His wife is named Becky, and I'm sure she would appreciate our prayers as well. David will be treated at UNC hospitals.
I know, too, that some of you who read this blog probably don't pray in the traditional sense (or in the nontraditional sense, for that matter), but I hope you might not mind sending out some positive thoughts into the universe on David's behalf. He can use all the energy and light we can send his way.
Thank you! Blessings!
