For some of you this is an update, for some of you this may be the first you're hearing of this. To give you a little back story, on Wednesday of this week Russ & Jennifer McKee took Cameron to the hospital with a fever and other symptoms. In the process of doing some testing the doctors discovered that his platelet level was dangerously low, a possible indication of some fairly serious things. Fearing this, Thursday night he was transferred to Children's Hospital in downtown Detroit for more testing. Further blood tests and a spinal tap confirmed what was feared. He has been diagnosed with Leukemia (AML Type 2). Leukemia is essentially cancer of the blood. It is treatable and treatment for Cameron has already begun.
This is obviously a VERY scary and overwhelming time for the Russ, Jennifer, Cameron, Cole, Cassidy, and the extended family. They covet your prayers and support now more than ever. They are hopeful, their spirits are high, and they are learning to put their trust in God. They are glad any time someone from the church family calls, writes, or stops in to see them. They love Evident and you all have been (and continue to be) such an encouragement to them.
Here is some of their info just so you have it...
Russ's number is (586) 206-8087.
Jennifer's number is (586) 206-6797.
Their address is 45750 Spagnuolo, Macomb, MI, 48044.
Don't hesitate to come around them any way you think would be appropriate or might feel led during this time. Just to give you a heads-up, as a church we are planning on coming around them financially in some way possibly through a special offering. This is something you could be thinking and praying about.
Thanks for your prayers. Don't hesitate to call if you have questions. I will be sharing a little bit about all of this with the church on Sunday and will also try to keep you updated as I know more.
God is still on the throne.
Love you guys,
