Today we met with the oncologist who specializes in a radiology called Cyberknife. Orange Coast Memorial is the first hostpial in Orange County to get this equipment. The pancreatic cancer has shrunk to a point that she will be able to get this treatment and hopefully get rid of the tumor in the pancreas. We are very thankful for this miraculous progress.

At the same time, we have found that my mom also has primary liver cancer and that the tumor in her liver has grown considerably. She will now stop the chemo for pancreatic cancer and begin treatment for the liver (chemo and radiation). Please pray that the liver cancer will also respond to the chemo and shrink away and the cancers will stay contained. We will meet with the oncologist for the liver cancer and my mom will also be starting tests and processes to prepare for the Cyberknife.

Please pray for all of the doctors and medical staff as they plan my mother's treatments. It is very rare to have both cancers and it requires multiple oncologists/radiologists and technicians. The Cyberknife is new to the hospital so there are engineers on hand to help. While it all seems overwhelming, I know that nothing is too big for God.

"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matt 19:26)
