Talk about being kicked while you're down

This won't be long because I really don't know much, but we are coming to you for another huge prayer request. My father-in-law, David, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this morning. As most of you know, Matt's mom Barbara was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer just about 6 weeks ago. So everyone has been dealing with that battle, and now this.

Like I said, the info we have at the moment is sketchy - we do know that it has spread to his liver. It looks like he will be coming to MD Anderson next week here in Houston for a few more tests and perhaps treatment for the long-term. Beyond that, we just don't know.

Please lift up Matt's Dad and entire family during this latest struggle. It's sort of unbelievable that this can happen to your parents within weeks of each other. We are pretty much in shock. However, one thing I am certain of is that God is the Ultimate Healer and that all of this is beyond human capability to deal with. We must lean on Him now more than ever.

In His Hands,

Oh Meagan. I am so sorry to hear this. Sending them both all of the positive energy we can... Tell Matt we're thinking of you all.

Oh my gosh. I'm sitting here in total disbelief. Meagan & Matt, I'm praying so hard for both of you, for Matt's parents' health and the doctors who are treating them and helping them make decisions. I'm so sorry.... And that sentence even reads as mimimalistic as I feel saying it. I love yall very much. Please keep us posted on how it's going, and what we can specifically be praying for for your whole family. Love you.
