My DIL's brother has been diagnosed with cancer of the tonsils!
(He is her only remaining brother. Their younger brother died 2 years ago of various health problems.)
And my DIL herself had breast cancer and a double mastectomy two years ago.
His tonsils were removed a few weeks ago. He has a stint in his arm now, ready for the IV and he will be using a feeding tube.
His radiation will be every day for 7 weeks (That's probably every week day.) and chemo once a week. He won't be able to talk or eat.
He and his wife own and operate a barber shop. It's always voted the Best Barber Shop in town in the yearly contest votes. They have 3 daughters, the youngest is a junior in high school.
His wife must continue working in the shop because that is how they make their living. He says he will work too, but it is doubtful.
He has a long, painful road ahead and needs all the prayer and good thoughts you can send.
My DIL's mother is not in good health and the loss of her younger son was a severe blow to her. This news is more trauma.
A good family with poor health inherited. Please send your prayers.
