Please pray for the Duckworth family. Jacob is one of my Caringbridge kids (see link to the left) and they have just learned that there is no treatment left for him and he may only have a few days to live. I’m so shocked and saddened by this…yet I can’t even begin to imagine what the family is going through. Yet through it all, their faith remains unwavering. Jacob’s dad posted John 16:22 on their site:
Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
Even after working for a cancer network for over six years, I’m still astounded by how complex each case can be and how even the most aggressive treatments may work for some and not others. It breaks my heart to see and hear of so many struggling and so many losing the battle. I pray that one day, all the people working so hard in this fight will find a way to prevent cancer all together…and in the meantime, to continue to find new and better treatments to help people survive.
