Specter, if I remember correctly, had *Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma* which is way worse. If he can make it, so can Fred.

Specter’s cancer....another good reference and one I’d forgotten about.

Non-Hodgkins is nasty. It's very aggressive. My 17-year old sister had it -- a tumor on her chest wall the size of a grapefruit -- and after prayers around the country it disappeared after ONE round of chemo. She finished her protocol and 15 years later she's married with a little girl.

My mom's non-Hodgkins was worse. It was stage four, spread from her kidney to the lymph system in her neck. It took a bone marrow transplant but she's alive ten years later and has been cancer free.

The chemo and radiation were the worst parts of their disease, not to mention the steroids, blood tests, ports, etc. I'm just so grateful they're alive today.

I think that is the kind that Jackie O. died from so quickly. It is very fortunate that Fred has the other kind. I hope he can keep it in remission as he has a very young daughter who needs him (and he needs to see her grow up)!

Prayers for Fred and his family!
