Hey everyone! Let me preface this by saying how much we completely appreciate each and every one of you messaging, texting, calling and above all, praying! That doesn’t seem like you’re doing much for us but let me tell you, I can feel it!!!!!! It means EVERYTHING!!!! 
What I would like to share is that what Mark has been diagnosed with is called Malignant Mucosal Melanoma. It’s not like skin melanoma in that it’s not caused by exposure to light. It is usually an environmental exposure and favors mucosal areas; mouth sinuses, throat, airways, digestive tract. It is found in only 1% of the world’s population. Mark’s began in his left maxillary sinus which is in the left cheek under the eye. We may never know how it began. We are where we are at this moment and where we are is that there isn’t a chemotherapy for this type of cancer. Remember, it’s not skin melanoma. Also, it tends to be aggressive. There is another unique therapy they can do which is an antibody type therapy. It doesn’t always respond but at least it is an option. 

By the PET scan, it appears to be localized in the facial bones around that sinus and possibly in two lymph nodes in his left neck. The treatment available is going to aim at a craniofacial resection and reconstruction at MD Anderson in Houston and as soon as we can get in there and get everything set up. It doesn’t appear that the cancer has spread to anywhere else in his body so we have that to be very thankful for! 
Begin to pray for: 
*we would like to ask for favor in every area in our daily needs while there. 
*Pray that we walk this path with grace and humility.
*pray for the doctors and any medical professional that will be part of his case as they make decisions and for their hands to be guided in surgery. 
*that Mark won’t have any bad reactions or residual troubles with anesthesia. 
*traveling graces and safety and for where we will stay.
*most importantly that we share the gospel and are a light to others! Pray for hearts to be softened and soil to be fertile! 
I’m enjoying all of the notes from everyone, the verses, the encouragement! Keep that coming! We love you all so much and are so beyond grateful to have you in our lives!!
