To all friends & family
Just heard that Lerma’s brother in Saudi Arabia has a "match" as a potential bone marrow donor. We are flying him to Cape Town this week where he will have further in-depth tests and once the match is "100+%" confirmed the transplant should take place during the 2nd half of December. Her brother has to remain in Cape Town for up to 2 months. We know that the actual transplant carries quite high risks but once over that next "hurdle" then Lerma can look forward to coming home, says her oncologist, in the new year.
Will keep you in the info loop.
Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.
Please keep praying for Lerma – she has had some emotional setbacks over the last week or two and would really value continued prayer. Pray for her family too, especially those who are out here from the Philippines – it’s not easy living in a strange country with your loved one so sick and unable to come home. Pray for all glory to be given to God in the here and now, as well as in future as it will be.
