First a much needed apology from ME! I am so sorry Iíve gone so long
without an update that you have been asking for. Itís hard for me to
write to everyone when Iím not feeling good because I like our time
together to be uplifting and happy. There is enough SADNESS IN THIS
OLD WORLD WITHOUT ME ADDING TO IT.
I know that many of you already know what my situation is as you
heard me tell about it on Larry King. I received thousands of
beautiful cards and letters from you, which I spend every evening 3
to 4 hours reading and crying and reading and laughing. Thank you
from the bottom of my grateful heart. You have been such an
encouragement to me. I read EVERY CARD AND LETTER AND I PRAY FOR
YOUR REQUESTS RIGHT ON THE SPOT!
We have received 15 of those big white boxes filled with your love
from the post office. It takes a long long time to get through that
much mail. But, it is a joy!
As most of you know I have an egg size tumor just above my left
breast that has had both radiation and chemotherapy used on it. The
treatment killed the cancer we thought, until the last time I had an
x-ray that showed cancer activity in the top half of the tumor. As I
told you before for 3 months I have been almost over whelmed with
sickness. Thank God, as a result of YOUR PRAYERS the panic attacks
have subsided, I no longer have to clear my throat all the time and
I have been able to swallow so now I can eat again. My weight went
from 116 down to 95 pounds Ė Iím NOT COMPLAINING! Ha! ha! As of this
writing Iím back up to 98. That is a good sign!
My doctors have put me on an oral chemotherapy where I take one pill
a day for 7 days and then Iím off them for 7 days etc. The pill is
called XELODA. It is my understanding that it is supposed to kill
tumors and prevent new ones from forming. The pill makes me very
sick to my stomach so it makes it hard for me to function. They just
prescribed another pill for me for my stomach that I hope and pray
will work. At this time I am on my off days.
I KNOW I need a miracle and I often quote the verse from the Bible
that says ďWhen I am afraid I will trust in theeĒ. I trust God
completely and feel at peace.
Thank you for your continued prayers for me and my family. PRAYER
CHANGES THINGS! Iíve seen prayer change things all my life. And
prayer will also change things for YOU! God is no respecter of
I donít know if you know this or not but I have my own TV show along
with my girlfriend Joanne Thompson. We have a fun cooking show
called, what else, ďYOU CAN MAKE IT!Ē Ha! Ha! And we donít just make
food we do a little bit of everything. I will let you know as soon
as we know when and where it will be airing. We have already taped
10 shows and I leave for Greenville, SC today to tape 6 more. On
Friday April 21st I will be on TBN for 4 hours doing a telethon with
Jan Crouch. Iím looking forward to that.

You can look in your
TV guide to find out what time that will air. Thatís the TRINITY
BROADCASTING NETWORK (TBN).
Thank you again for all your love and your kindness to me. I wish
there was a way I could hug each one of you individually. You have
become such a big part of my heart.
