Husband’s Stage 4 Cancer

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer and the first thing his doctor told him was “Don’t research this on the web!”  That’s because the survival rate is dismal, especially with a tumor so large we nicknamed it “the Texas tumor.”  The first days were a blur of numbness and shock as we had to wait for space in the program so he could be admitted, and we had the actual feeling of holding on to a tree root as we’re hanging off a cliff.  Through prayer, we LET GO and dropped onto the rock that is Jesus Christ.  Doors opened and my husband was admitted into the MD Anderson proton therapy treatment, which is an amazing technology to blast cancer while lessening the damage to surrounding tissues. 



We arrived at the separate proton therapy facility in the Med Center to find a beautiful, two-story atrium building where you check in on the top floor, then walk down an open staircase to the lower floor.  After we checked in, my husband turned to me and said excitedly, “They’re playing KSBJ!”  With the high ceiling and the two-story lobby, the sound of praise music to God permeated the entire facility.  I felt Jesus walking down the staircase with us, giving us strength for the next step of treatment.  No massive European or American cathedral with stained glass and golf leaf could be as beautiful as this place of hope and life.  Thank you, KSBJ, for lifting our spirits and reminding us of God’s presence and promises.  (5 years cancer-free, take that Satan!)
