Our Freeper Friend Jeff Head was diagnosed
with a serious (they all are to me) form of cancer
just before Christmas



Please help me approach the prayer throne for our friend Jeff Head who is in Houston currently from his home in Idaho to have surgery & treatment at MD Anderson for his cancer. He will be able to respond on occasion.

You can follow his story & the particulars of the cancer at his blog/HERE

You might know him for many reasons.. His great mind & posts on this forum .. at which he was Freeper of the year in 2001. He is an Activist, Author, Man of God, Devoted Family Man(father of 6; grandfather of 5) and friend to many.

You can find him on line at places other than here.. at Facebook he is Jeff Head

Jeff's Web Page - (check out the neat stickers he sells)

Jeff's blog on his Cancer

Father we pray for our friend Jeff. May he find your perfect peace as he continues to trust you with his life. Give the surgeons and medical personnel wisdom and perfect skill in treating him. Please keep him close to your heart as his body responds to treatments and to surgery. Help us to love him as our brother and give support and strength to wife Gail and their large and loving family. In the name of our Savior and Creator. Amen.

I am so sorry to hear this news. May you be blessed with the alternate treatment if it will benefit you to receive it, Jeff.

We continue to hold you and your family close in thought and prayer at my house. May the Lord comfort you and grant you strength to face the challenges ahead.

Sorry to hear the news, I will continue to keep you in my prayers and hope for a full recovery.  The next time you are in TX, you may want to look up Dr. B who treats cancer patients with an alternative approach.

Stanislaw R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D., internationally recognized physician and biochemist-researcher who pioneered the development and use of biologically active peptides in diagnosing, preventing and treating cancer, since 1967.

Brother Jeff, I know this is not a development you were hoping for, and the prayers and support continue, from all of us lifting you up, asking God to strengthen you, beseeching the Throne for a miraculous healing.

You're in a battle for your life, that's no secret. You are fighting that good fight, and you're feeling tired and weary but your decision to pursue the possibility of Carbon Ion Radiation is the right thing to do, and I will be praying for a 'good report' on your getting that treatment.

Meanwhile, while I cannot imagine how you are truly feeling and thinking, I've been pondering the fact that in this world, we find ourselves in a continual battlefield between good and evil, and our enemy the Devil seeks to rob, kill and destroy.

The Lord Jesus is your (and our) Commander-in-Chief, and if He be for us, who can be against us? If you can, try to work up some good old fashioned indignation at the Devil if you hear any whispers about it being 'too late' or 'time to give up', it's never time to give up, and I urge you to emulate a great American General, Anthony McAuliffe, he was the guy commanding the 101st Airborne during the Battle of the Bulge, and you know what he's famous for, when he received an ultimatum and demand to surrender from the Nazis, he responded with one word: "NUTS!"

So to anyone and anything who suggests to you, our dear Brother, that it's time to quit, we join with you with a great big ol' thunderous,

** NUTS!!!!! **

Keep fighting FRiend! We Love You!

My dear fellow Freeper and patriot....

God will point the way, my friend
And turn crisis into calm
We will utter prayers for you
He'll supply the healing balm

My dear Jeff. I appreciate what has to be a most difficult update to put into words. Prayers for you and your family, as always, of course. And prayers for those concerned with the medical aspects of your life to be guided to the best possible outcome for you, your family and us.

Sad news to be sure Jeff, but it's not the end of the story. Not by a long shot. The actions you outlined are a positive proactive plan that may yet bear fruit. Continue fighting the good fight and never, ever, give up.

Prayers will continue.
