Great News!!!

Birthday wishes come true! Brandon's blood work came back tonight and...the chemo is working!!! Doan's nurse said that the blood work they looked at today showed that the chemo worked really well and is successfully killing the cancer cells. The best part is that this was considered a "light" round of chemo in comparison to what's coming up, so hopefully that will knock out everything!

Brandon is getting up out of bed a lot easier as the days go on and is walking more and more. (With the walker of course, but still.) His appetite continues to get better each day, and he has more interest in eating a greater variety of foods.

We are all very encouraged by this news and recognize that Doan's progress is a direct result of all of your prayers and fasting. Please keep it up! We realize it is just as important now as it was before to call on the Lord and express our gratitude as well as ask for continued blessings to be with Brandon as he moves forward with his treatment plan. We can't thank you enough for all you have done and will be eternally grateful.

Hey Bro!

Hope you have a great day today! I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you right now. I hope you feel everyone's love and support today. Keep up the good attitude and remember the scripture in Philippians "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phil. 4:13

Love ya man!
