Another Priority Today! by DL Larson

First of all, thank you all for your kind words of encouragement while I waited for my book to be released.  I appreciate everyone taking time to contact me.  It means a lot.  And I will talk more next week about my book and how I plan to promote it.  But today I have another priority.

A young man, Dalton, 16, is having major surgery today.  He's from our small town and we really are just one big family here in Earlville and his fight with cancer has been on many minds.  For the last several months Dalton has undergone chemo theropy for the rare cancer he has.  He is one of the sixteen people in the world with this type of cancer. 

His surgery is scheduled for noon.  The surgeons plan to remove the tumor in his leg and the three in his lung.  The chemo has helped shrink the tumors, but the one nestled behind his heart is of particular worry. 
On behalf of his family I'm asking for your prayers today.  I know so many times we are asked not to bring our faith into our business world.  Well, I'm breaking that rule today.  I hope you understand that when we are left with no physical way to help our loved ones, prayer is the best place to go. 

Thanks for letting me share this with you.

Til next time ~
