It’s been sometime since we’ve had an update on Joe. My apologies for not keeping you guys up to date!
From David, Joe’s son:
“Tough news from the oncologist today. Dad’s cancer has spread to the liver and about 80% of it is now infected. We have a teleconference with the doctor and our family on Tuesday to make a decision on whether or not to do full treatments to fight back and prolong things a bit. Considering the scope of the infected liver, Dad’s inclination at present is to simply let the cancer take its course…but a final decision will be made next week.We are asking for prayers for Dad. He has an abiding faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and is ready to be with God, yet these things are always tough on the family. So please pray for us as well.”
Thank you for continued prayers!
What a blessing & encouragement Joe, Jane & all of the Burton Family have been for so very many of us at Sherwood through the years! Joe was here to stay with Milton when he was terminal with his sarcoma malignancy when it spread into his liver, while Jane went with me to Hospice meetings for caregivers. Several times they blessed us with transportation to airline flights to visit our family. They have truly laid down their lives to help not only their own family but so very many others. May God bless, comfort, strengthen & give peace to each one of you in the Burton Family. You are so dearly loved! Donna Massey
