Boge, I'm dropping you a line to ask for your prayers.During the last several weeks I've been undergoing tests and surgical procedures and now am diagnosed with Cancer of the Prostate. Today I got back the results of a bone scan that the cancer has NOT spread to bone. The Doctor plans hormone therapy and thinks It can be managed.I could surely use all the prayers I can get. Please spread the word to all who would remember me in their prayers. Were it not for prayer..I'd have gone nuts several weeks ago........Peace, Jimmy Wood

Anything with the BIG C is scary however prostate cancer is often cureable and very treatable. My dad had it when he was 70 or so and is still kicking at 88. I have known several guys in my age group (60-+) that have also recovered from it. That it has not spread is very good news. I certainly hope him well, though I dont know him. Good luck and a speedy recovery!!

Jimmy's 70-ish, and I think he will beat it. But he's scared, and I would be too if they threw that C-WORD at me. Thanks, guys, for the prayers. If y'all want to contact him, his email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
