Good news!

Some may think it is strange to entitle the post - Good News!, especially since we are talking about Dad's cancer. But we know what we are dealing with: Multiple Myeloma/Plasmacytoma.

What is important is that the doctor believes that this is very treatable. We are hoping for good results and Dad is starting treatment today. He still needs to do more tests (of course) but Phew. Grateful to know and grateful for modern medicine.

Thank you for your prayers - they helped!

If you want to follow Dad's progress, we are updating his blog daily:

All our prayers are with you Bishop Brown! I stumbled on this website accidentally today (I ran into Shanna Flake (now Shanna Hunt) at a Gilbert Ward we were visiting today... I heard that her husband had been a missionary in your mission, and that lead me to search on google to see if I could try and find out what was up with you and your family). I'm sorry to learn about your cancer diagnosis. That particular cancer seems to have a preference for folks from the old 3rd ward (Ella O'Loughlin, John Biggs) and my wife's mother too, although she wasn't from 3rd ward. We will remember you in our prayers. I called my parents tonight (Arch and Liana) to let them know 'what's up' so they will be keeping you in their prayers too.

I'd love to get in touch again with Becky, Joe, and Buffy to say hello and exchange family info. All our best! Taun E. Willis and family.
