Please take a moment and pray for this little boy. Pray for his family as well. I understand their fears and hopes. Our son was diagnosed with a tumor in his brain when he was seven years old. Unlike Matthew's, however, our son's is in the hypothalamus, almost in the center of the brain, and is inoperable. We have to get an MRI every nine months to monitor the tumor. So far it has remained unchanged, which the doctors say is a good sign, but we pray every day for him to be healed.
Pray for Matthew to have a successful surgery, and a good recovery, and that he will be healed; pray for his family as well.
