FReeper Jeff Head - in need of prayer - Cancer surgery (GOOD NEWS update @ #1638&1688&1931!)
Journal: My bone cancer (Sacral Chordoma) ^ | 4 January 2010 | Dolly Howard

Posted on 01/04/2010 2:45:21 AM PST by DollyCali

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 FR Profile

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.

perhaps a condition called multiple myeloma

Not multiple myeloma, but chardoma? I only know two men about Jeff Head's age who had multiple myeloma and both were cured to complete remission albeit after some exceptionally arduous chemotherapy that took about a year to complete. Both suffered painful spine deterioration (one fellow went from 6' 4" to 6'). But they both beat it.

But chardoma is less serious in some ways than multiple myeloma? There's a blessing right there!

Heavenly Father, with all humility I approach Your throne of Grace on behalf of Jeff. In these times of sorrow, fear and outrageous rebellion against You, men like Jeff are sorely needed - and we know that satan delights in attacking such patriots.

Father, I am asking that the cancer that is attacking Jeff become isolated and easily removed. Keep it encapsulated and ready to be excised by the skillful surgeon's hands. Indeed, let it fairly pop out into those hands, never to trouble Jeff again. Heal the rest of those delicate nerves in and around that area, Oh Mighty God, that Jeff is once again able to join the battle for You, for this great nation You established, and for each of us individually.

Keep him pain-free, Merciful Lord, not just comfortable, but completely free of pain. Support and sustain Jeff and his wonderful wife as they travel this path together. Provide for every need, no matter how insignificant it may be to us.

Again, Mighty God, I commend our brother Jeff to You for complete healing and restoration. The battles are becoming fierce, and we need strong men of faith to inspire, encourage, and guide us.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I claim the promise of healing for Jeff, to magnify and glorify the Lord Jesus and to send satan and his minions back from whence they came. Amen!

Dolly, I’ve also tried to go to Jeff’s blog (and I have a facebook account) but can not seem to access it. He may have it set to private where a person must be on his friends list to even see his account.

If you get a chance, could you please post the rest of his blog so we can keep up with Jeff and his condition?

Thanks!!
