Andrew Anderson, Jeff Anderson
First of all we want to thank everyone for your prayers and support. It is humbling to be lifted up to our Lord and Savior by so many. Thank you all!
We also want to thank those that have helped Andrew financially with his medical bills. Cancer is expensive and he really appreciates your help.
We met with Andrew's Doctor this afternoon to go over his test results and he informed us that this type of cancer can and has changed. Biopsy now shows that he now has Large B cell Lymphoma, a more aggressive type. That is not good. Tough road ahead as Andrew will start this Friday or Monday morning with bigger tougher Chemo. This will be a challenge for sure. He will have 2 cycles, then another PET scan to see if it is responding! If yes, then a 3rd cycle in hospital with preparation for a T-cell transplant to be done during the 3-week stay.
After what he has been through already this was difficult to hear but this is the path God has us on so we will not complain. Through Him all things are possible.
You have no idea how comforting it is to have so many of you walking with us on this journey. Your prayers and uplifting messages are an amazing comfort. Thank you!
Sharon Moore - and son in Law
Sharon and Mark Moore have been with MDT since 2015, when they went through our training program and obtained their CDL A. They have been valued and beloved ever since. We are sad to say that Sharon was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma a few days ago, and because of the location and size of the tumor, she has been started on aggressive doses of Chemo. Sharon will be in the hospital for a month or more as doctors and all of us continue to pray and are hopeful treatment will be successful. Unfortunately, this is not the only battle this family is fighting. Sharon's father is currently in hospice, and her future son-in-law is battling Esophagus Cancer. One thing is a lot to bear for any family, three is very stressful and taxing. Please keep them in your prayers and consider helping as Mark is trying to be there for all of them. Neither Mark or Sharon is currently working. There are many ways to help: Meals, gift cards, cash, cafeteria bucks, uplifting cards and phone calls. Please find it in your heart to do something, no matter how big or small, everything in life is significant. Sharon is currently at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI
Sue Hook - Wife of Harry Hook Another one of our wonderful MDT Drivers and we mean that from the bottom of of hearts! Harry (aka) Chuck never complains, works very hard for us and always does it with a smile on his face. Harry's wife Sue has diagnosed with stage 4 Lung cancer not long ago and is currently home with Hospice. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time and understand your donations will be greatly used and appreciated.
Many of us here at Midwest Companies have been deeply affected by someone going through cancer. We have done some amazing things along to help people get through these most difficult times. (There are success stories too!) However, it seems like it's not enough. We really want to try to help on a larger scale. We want to give generously, be there to listen, be supportive, and to try to take as much of the financial burden away as we can. I know that nearly everyone one around has been affected or will be affected somewhere in their future. This is the plague of our century and it does not discriminate.
