Please be in prayer for Jim Brewer


Jim has been diagnosed with Stage 1 Mantle Lymphoma. This is a rare cancer that only 15,000 people in the US have. He will begin radiation treatments the first week of January for 12 consecutive days. Following that he will have monoclonal antibody therapy once a week for four weeks. Please be much in prayer for Jim and Barbara.
