the world's greatest shave

Last year a good friend of ours who is a work colleague of SP's found out he has lymphoma cancer, even though many tests could not locate any further cancer, the cancer they had found was a very aggressive sort. After seeing various doctors and specialists it was recommended that he go on a 2 year course of chemotherapy. This January he started his intense chemo, he has been very sick and in and out of hospital getting treated, he has recently had to come off the chemo as he has been so sick. He also has a 2 1/2 year old little girl and another one due next month.

Firstly I would love for you to pray for this family and pray for wisdom for us in how to support them through this, they live very close to us and SP has been an amazing support and visited his friend when he has been in hospital for the many hours receiving treatment. We also went over a few weeks ago to shave his hair off as it had started to fall out. Our prayers are that we might be able to share Christ with them and love/support them in the ways in which they need.

So next week my lovely husband has decided he is shaving his head for the 'World's Greatest Shave', he has been letting his hair grow ready for the big day. I will make sure he gets some before and after shots.

Secondly, if you want to support him let me know and I can send you the link, you can sign up and sponsor him on the web.
