More Prayer Requested for Faith Howland

Update June 10, 2012: We have received an update from Paul Howland, (Missionary Prayer Handbook Day 11) on the condition of his wife Faith, who has been battling cancer for some time now.  Please remember Faith in your prayers!

The month of May has not been easy.  Faith continued her chemo therapy until the 30th when she was admitted to the hospital because of severe pain.  After lots of tests, we were told that the cancer had advanced significantly and that the chemo was not worth continuing.  She was moved to a Hospice facility on the Mayo Clinic campus.  So she is being followed by some of the same doctors.  Please pray that the doctors will find the right combination and dose of medicine to reduce her pain without making her too sleepy.

God answered prayer for medical insurance.  Faith was accepted for the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) newly created by the government.  Most of her hospital bills will be covered from June 1st onward.  The monthly cost and yearly deductibles are reasonable.
