In Need of Prayer...

Please be in prayer for Joseph. This little boy has a brain tumor that has already caused him many troubles. It is very difficult to find care for children with brain tumors. Understandably, hospitals are often unwilling to embark on this type of venture due to the many number of unknowns in such cases. Without the advanced scanning equipment needed to diagnose the type of tumor, its location and its rate of progress, we cannot give all the information often needed to get the care donated. That doesn't mean we won't try and that we aren't asking you all to pray for Joseph and his family. If anyone knows a surgeon that might consider this case or be willing to consult with us on what this little man might be needing, please let us know. We will happily share all that we know at this point.

Fran, have you tried Dr. Spetzler at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix. He operated on my SIL's brain tumor and is supposed to be one of the top neurosurgeons in the country.
Here's a link to info about him:
