Happy Thanksgiving! We know what we're thankful for...

Dear Friends and Family,

I am beyond happy to say that Mark is officially cancer free!!!! Did you hear the shout about 4:00 today from Marietta, GA?? I'm not surprised if you did - I told the kids that NED - "No Evidence of Disease" are my new favorite letters! What a wonderful thing to hear prior to leaving for Thanksgiving.

To be honest, neither of us were surprised. Mark had total faith that God had healed him. Last night I went to bed praying for a good report and a word from God...I fell asleep praying and then I woke up in the middle of night as I rolled over toward Mark and the words from the song "God of this City" were as clear as a bell as I heard "greater things are yet to come and greater things are still to be done..." and then I just knew that God wasn't finished with us yet and that God had taken away the cancer!

No matter how, why, when are where we are just praising God for ALL He has done and for the miraculous healing that we have experienced!!

This morning the verses that I read were Exodus 14:13-14 “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today... The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."

THANK YOU for all your prayers!!!

Next steps - routine colonoscopy to be done December 3 - it had to be rescheduled from last week - then the port will come out December 8 and then we don't have to go back to Cancer Center for 3 months!

In January we are prayerfully considering going on the Hallelujah diet to be proactive in keeping the cancer cells away. We both believe nutrition is a huge part of the puzzle.

We wish you all a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

Much love and appreciation,

Mark and Lee

Psalm 121:5-8

The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
He will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Psalm 100

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.Know that the LORD is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise;give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the LORD is good and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.


  1. Great News!!! I began praying for Mark this morning about 4:30 and asking God to give you both a peace as you wait for the results. I am so thankful that He has healed. Mark, you have walked through this valley with such grace and I have seen God shine through you as you sing in the choir on Sundays. I know that God will continue to bless you and your family.
