After my last couple of visits with my oncologist we discussed going for a clinical trial. I went on the 16th to talk with a USC doctor about starting one. I feel pretty good but am having some back pain, chest pain, a cough and I don't have much of an appetite. My cancer treatments, up until now, are not working much in my favor. The USC doctor says I'm a good candidate for the clinical trial so I'm going to try to get into the trial.
I am so blessed to have so many praying for me; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please continue praying for me and clinical trial success. With God all things are possible.

The Bishops of the United States are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.”
These three years will culminate in the first National Eucharistic Congress in the United States in almost fifty years. Almost a hundred thousand Catholics will join together in Indianapolis for a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage toward the...Read more
