Elizabeth Pierce Update...

Elizabeth is the daughter-in-law of Daniel Pierce (founding pastor and current outreach pastor of our church).

It was discovered last week that Elizabeth has a brain tumor (glioma) in her frontal lobe. Doctors tell the family this is the easiest place for a tumor to be removed. The family has decided to seek treatment at Duke University. Elizabeth and family are now at Duke and have met with the doctor twice. Daniel shared that the doctor made them feel quite hopeful and encouraged about the operation. Surgery will be performed April 30th. Elizabeth will then need a couple of days of recovery in the hospital after the procedure.

Daniel said they are encouraged with the decision because:
    1. Duke has more experience in Elizabeth's condition than the Atlanta hospital (though the Atlanta facility appeared to be top notch as well).
    2. Teressa's family lives in the Durham area, making family support even more possible.
    [3. Daniel may not agree, but Duke has the best basketball program in the country.]


This news comes just a couple weeks after Elizabeth gave birth to her first child, William Anderson Pierce.

Please pray for the Dan (Daniel's son), Elizabeth, William, Daniel, Teressa and the rest of the family involved.

    I might forget to pray, but I will as I remember. Is the tumor malignant or benign?
