As I had posted on the old site my friend has been through some tough times . He had surgery yesterday and the cancer was more advanced than expected . The surgeon tried to remove all of the cancerous tissue but was unable . They put a trake (spelling ? ) in for the future . The doctors said he would be needing it but he did not know when . As you can imagine the family is taking it quite hard . I would be very greatful to all of you if you could think of my friend and his family in your prayers .
