Update on Our Son Matthew and His Battle with DSRCT

Matthew, August 2012
 Update Note 9/3/2012:  We are still claiming victory over the cancer (Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor ~ DSRCT)that has invaded our son Matthew's body since March of 2010.  The latest report, after almost 2 years of being on a maintenance chemo pill, shows that the tumors that still exist in Matt's body are starting to show signs of growth again.  Therefore, he has started back on an intravenous chemotherapy once a week until further notice.  This particular kind of chemo is not supposed to be quite as stressful on his body as the original prescription back in 2010, but should hopefully reverse the growth of the tumors and at least keep them from progressing.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support of Matthew, Nicole and our grandson Noah during this time.  We don't know what the future holds, but we do know Who holds the future...and we will trust in the Lord to carry Matthew through to victory. Amen!

Matt and Nicole, August 2012

Our Grandson, Noah, Aug. 2012

We thank our Lord for YOU, our friends and loved ones and even people we've never met in person...you've been a network of strong fibers, reaching under and around us and surrounding us with your prayers, words of hope and encouragement, and acts of kindness.  You have been God's Hands and Feet and voice to us when we were feeling overwhelmed and afraid.  You have been there for us oftentimes when people who may have been closest to us physically couldn't help us because of their own feelings of anxiety and doubt. 
Matthew, Noah, and Nicole -  2010
Thank you for praying!!!!
In Jesus' Name...Amen.


  1. Hi Pamela,

    I will certainly pray for Matthew! My goodness, he has had his challenges

    God Bless!


    1. Thank you, Mary, for your prayers for Matthew. Yes, he has had some difficult times...but God, in His mercy, has blessed him and sustained him through it all. Right now he is undergoing chemo again for this cancer. He is doing OK, and we pray this will shrink those tumors back and keep them from growing again. We know that God is able...and we are trusting Him to do what is right and best for Matt. Your prayers are a blessing. Thank you.
