Our friend’s son was diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) in September. He has completed his first stage of treatment (induction phase) and is currently on the second phase of treatment (consolidation phase). His name is Hunter and he is a very sweet boy. He had a biopsy at the beginning of January which showed he is in remission. The doctors have said the difficult part is remaining in remission. While Hunter remains in REMISSION– the journey is still long. This month, May, he is receiving another intense 4 day a week IV chemo/lumbar punctures/spinal chemo etc, then a few 1/day a week chemo treatments. In June he will begin an 8 week cycle of 1-2 day chemo weeks–much the same as now. If all goes well he will finish the most intense part by the first of August.
In August he will begin the MAINTENANCE PHASE which will continue until around his 16th birthday (2 1/2 more years). He’ll get monthly IV chemotherapy and 5 days of steroids each month plus multiple oral chemotherapy drugs to take during the duration of the 2.5 years. They will assume he is in REMISSION at this point unless his blood counts tell otherwise. The longer he stays in remission, the better the chance his cancer will stay in REMISSION without relapse. Please pray for complete physical healing so that he may grow up and be used for God’s kingdom. Also, please pray for peace and comfort for his family especially his parents and brother. In addition, please pray that his side affects from chemo would be minimal. Also, they have been told that due to all the steroids he has to take the risk for Type 1 diabetes is extremely high. Please pray that this would no be true for him. Lastly, we ask prayers for wisdom for his doctors and nurses caring for him. Thanks so very much!soundyaaPrayers: 3085Requests: 12

Dear Lord Jesus,
Please touch Hunter with your healing touch. Cleanse every blood cell in his body. Lord Jesus show yourself strong. Please be in control of what the doctors will do and be their Chief instructor.
I ask Lord that you rebuke Cancer ! I ask that you break every chain of cancer and set Hunter free indeed! I am trusting you for a miracle . Let the healing that will occur in Hunter be a medical MYSTERY! Let the doctors exclaim and say ” This MUST be the hand of God!”
Let Hunter’s parents know that we have prayed , so they need to believe and not doubt. Let them read healing scriptures over their son. Let healing songs play in Hunter’s bed room.
Hunter will be made whole.matthewpeck77Prayers: 9Requests: 5

Update and urgent prayer needed:
I received the following message a few days ago from Hunter’s aunt asking for prayer for him!
As some of you know Hunter is heading into his 9th month with chemo. He’s been having random fevers for a few weeks. With leukemia patients a fever is a big deal. Usually indication of an infection of some sort. Last week they found an ingrown toenail and thought maybe that was the cause of the fevers. So they did minor surgery to remove part of the toenail, and started if antibiotics.
His fever went back up on Tuesday night the 23rd and he was re admitted to the hospital. While the blood cultures aren’t showing a blood infection–they are still trying o figure out what is going on. His immune system is almost non-existent. His WBC number is 0.1. (This is extremely low–even for a cancer patient-and extremely dangerous. Even a normal bacteria on our skin could cause havoc on his body.)
Today his toe is inflamed again and looks bad. The podiatrist may remove the entire nail tomorrow. This is extremely painful.
Please please pray for Hunter tonight and in the coming days for:
1) no infection to show up
2) immune system to recover (he cannot be discharged until he hits a number and he isn’t anywhere close)
3) his pain with foot surgery
4) his nausea/vomiting
5) for the entire family to be sustained and strengthened as this and extended hospital stays continue to wear on themrjmyers48Prayers: 2Requests: 1
