Phil Dick, son of longtime Grace Brethren pastor Paul Dick and former athletic director and coach at Grace College, has been fighting lung cancer for some months. Many are following the updates his daughter, Michelle, is posting on www.caringbridge.com (type in phildick).
Knowing that he would get results of the latest CT scans this week, the Dicks have asked for prayer that the cancer would not have spread, or might even decrease. Here is Michelle’s latest entry:
“I just received the best news I’ve heard in 8 months!!!! Dad had his c-t scans on Monday and they called just a few minutes ago to give him the preliminary results (his “official” appointment is tomorrow afternoon). The spots on his lungs are stable and they’ve actually seen one decrease in size!!!! This is so fantastic – this tells us that Dad is in the 40-50% response group and they will continue to give him Suten on the cycle he’s been on for the past 2 months. This is the hope we’ve been praying for and we rejoice in God’s graciousness to us. He will meet with Dr. S. tomorrow to review the dosage, continued treatment, etc. But in the meantime, please praise God with us and I need to schedule a celebration party! 🙂
Love, Michelle on behalf of Mom & Dad”
