Please prayer for my nephew, Jay Shields. Jay will be going in for a
very dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from his spine on Wednesday
at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. They will also be removing a
cancerous spot from his lung. (There are numerous spots but they are
only taking one now and will remove the rest in a few months.
Jay is 18. He has been battling osteosarcoma for over 3 years now. God
has blessed us with so many miracles through out this journey. The
biggest one being the fact that Jay is still here when the other 5
boys w/ the same disease who started chemo at the same time as him
have all passed away.
Thanks to all of you who sent Jay cards and CDs this past year. He
really did appreciate them. Jay is a beautiful piano player and has
also been writing a few songs and poems. He has struggled w/ his
beliefs throughout this process. However, in a recent visit w/ me he
seemed to be opening himself up to God and faith.
