Thank You Note

Dear Brethren,

Several months ago many of your members provided food and other needed items when I was a patient at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I am Bethy Butler's dad.

The food, the cards, the prayers and the other acts of love were greatly appreciated and they encouraged us when we were experiencing something for the first time in our lives.

Debbie and I wish to thank you again for your generosity and kindness.

One March 3rd of this year, both my surgeon and radiologist told me that there was no sign of a tumor or any cancer. We are still rejoicing over this. And, we wish to thank you for your many prayers on my behalf. I am certain that your prayers had much to do with this healing and my present recovery.

SNUC is a rare cancer (only 100 Americans have it), there is no set way of treating it and it usually returns within the first year if it is cured. Also, the mortality rate is very high for SNUS. But for now, I am cured of it. I am optimistic that I will fully recover from SNUC.

I will have MRI's every 13 weeks for a whole year to make sure it doesn't come back. If it does come back, it will be removed by either surgery or be treated in some other manner.

Once again, thank you for all gifts!

May the Lord bless your efforts at OC. God bless.

Travis Irwin, involvement minister
Athens, TN
