For those of you who are joining me in prayer for Meredith, the latest update is that she has been diagnosed with Stage 3 brain cancer. The prognosis is not great. Surgery was done on Monday to remove 1/3 of the tumor (all that they could safely remove). The remaining tumor needs immediate treatment as it will quickly grow back. Doctors recommend starting radiation within a month, with concurrent chemotherapy. A portion of the removed tumor will be analyzed. Depending on the results, her condition could be downgraded to stage 4, where the prognosis is grim.
Please pray that God would be glorified through this. Pray for her parents, as they are exhausted and faced with some huge decisions. The enormous cost of Meredith’s treatment weighs heavily, but hundreds of thousands of dollars will not help what only God can do.
