Jeff, Kirt, Brian and Rob took on the clippers Saturday for Team Justin. Together we raised $3,000 for childhood cancer research! Thank you so much for your support and generous donations. Our hope and prayer is that someday there will be treatment for all types of childhood cancer as well as better treatments with less difficult side effects.
We saw Justin’s oncologist this morning and spoke at length about his apparent anxiety I have noticed. His doctor confirmed that he is indeed showing signs and symptoms of stress and social anxiety such as increased heart rate, refusal to speak to others and reluctance to be away from me. Justin’s doctor wants us to meet with the clinic’s child psychologist to discuss strategies to help Justin work through his feelings. It is not uncommon for children with a traumatic medical diagnosis to experience these symptoms.
Please pray along with us that Justin’s heart will be touched with a calmness and peace. And for wisdom handling this new layer of an already very difficult journey.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3
Grace be with you, my friends.

We are praying with you that the spirit of the Lord would move on Justin and produce not only a peace in his heart but a boldness of knowing that his God is bigger than this disease and that he will overcome. The Lord is our hope and our salvation in whom shall we trust.
I will continue to pray for you, Jeff, Justin and Nicky and Michael as you go through this heart breaking time of pain, sickness and adjustments. It is sad that he has to go through this. Praying that God will become more real to Justin and he will learn to trust Him. He has a great teacher, his mom. I love you Katie.
Hugs and kisses, Pat
