# 01454 :  George M. Abraham
Dear Readers,
Part-1

Since I was asked to write about my brother-in-law, George M. Abraham, I write this thread.

In September, he had trouble to swallow food. He went to the doctor and after various tests, nothing was identified. Then he began to experience pain on his side. At that time, he underwent a barium x-ray. After that, he was diagnosed with an advanced, stage four, cancer of the esophagus with spots on the liver and limp nodes. He had an appointment with the oncologist to decide about the logistic of the treatment. During that meeting, George mentioned about experiencing blurred vision. An immediate MRI was conducted and found that there was a spot on his brain and a growth in the right eye. This made finding forced to change the treatment plan. Within two days, he lost the sight on his right eye.

The treatment strategy was to attack the brain spot first, then the eye and the rest of the body at the same time. The brain spot was removed with the use of cyber knife. For the eye, a series of 20 radiations at a specialized clinic from Monday-Friday was decided. There was no assurance of hope was given by the doctors. In addition to these, he was to undergo a series of four chemotherapy was prescribed. This is done on once a week and lasts for about 8 hours. This Wednesday is the last chemotherapy session. The radiation on the eye will continue for another week.

After two sessions of the chemotherapy, he could eat without any discomfort. He eats everything. He works at home and when needed goes to the work place. He does not feel any weakness, so far.

Last Saturday, when I called, he told me that he could see shadows on the floor. This he could see only when he looks down.

(To be cont. Part-2)

Dear Readers,
Part-2

I have a few medical doctor friends. Their first reaction was that he is in a bad shape, as far as the cancer infection is concerned. Now he is experiencing certain miraculous recovery, if I may say that, in eating and a slight hope of seeing with his right eye. There are many people upholding him before the throne of grace. So far, our Father has shown kindness and some relief. We covet your prayers on his behalf.

George lives with his wife, Blossom, and three children in Palo Alto, California and is in fellowship with the saints at the Grace Bible Assembly.

Shalom Malekim!!!

Dear Readers,

This is an update about George M. Abraham.

He just called me and told me about the recent evaluation by the doctors after the initial treatments. There is no trace of cancer in his esophagus. There is a little trace in the liver. He has to undergo four more chemotherapy sessions, which is to be finalized.

We thank God for his kindness in this matter. We along with George M. Abraham thank you all for your prayer and concern, in the past. We will appreciate it, as the treatment is to continue.

Shalom Malekim!!!

Dear David Chase,

Thank you for the encouraging words. My brother-in-law is still undergoing chemotherapy. The doctors want to keep the teatment on, so long as he could tolerate.

He goes to work. In the past couple of weeks, he feels a little tired. There is progress, but the doctors wants to make sure all cancer cells are killed.

Shalom Malekim!!!

Dear brethren,

I wish to thank you all for your prayers for George Abraham during the past several months. On Friday, 9 May, we heard the following from him.

I had a PET Scan on Wednesday. I have a meeting with my doctor on Monday to discuss next steps. Yesterday I learned that the PET scan shows no sign of cancer below my neck. Probably this will help me take a break from Chemo and monitor with PET scan periodically. Thank you for all your prayers.

We thank God, our Father, for the healing he received as a result of prayers from all of us. We also thank you all for your prayers and concerns that was shown.

Shalom Malekim!!!

We request your prayers.
