This message came from Sue this A M. I posted the original story when they were first faced with this. Some of you might recall. They have 3 kids 11-14 now.

So...we found out this week Bruces cancer is back! 5 yrs ago they took his kidney, a year later a brain tumor, now it's in his other kidney. Complicated, yes, but surgery is set for 6 weeks with the goal to remove tumor and leave 75% function. Pray, pray, pray!!! And Pray some more! Thanks & love, Jan

Oh dear. Sending mega prayers that all will go well. They've had enough worry to last a lifetime already.

Thank you all so much! I always know I can count on you!
Remember that I am a Prayer also.
Bruces wife is my 3rd dau, they married & had their kids when she was past 30 & bruce near 40. The cancer struck him just mos. after they moved to Fl. from Mi.
After it moved to the brain & he had that surgery he was very ill & unable to work & applied fo SS dissability & recieved it for a couple of years & they had to re-evaluate which they did & decided he should be able to return to work & took away his SS the 1st of this year so he had a home repair business, doing odd jobs around the area where they live. He appealed the decision & was denied & now has to do it again. Sue is the food & drink manager at a local Golf course.
I don't know whether to cry or throw-up. I know that some of you know just what I mean. Thanks for being here, it helps. Love Jan

News from Fl. Bruce will be having robotic surgery a Lakeland Regional cancer ctr. on Monday 7/27. Tumors are small & outside the kidney so it should be fairly simple compared to the first one. We are praying for him & our fam & medical staff, & dietician & housekeeper &, well you all get my meaning. Right? Thank you for continued prayers & prayers said for all of you as well. Love Jan

:hp I sure love my Cocker friends!!! :hp

To all our wonderful friends,
Bruces surgery went just as planned & was smaller & simpler than
the 1st one 5 years ago, he will be home before the weekend.
It was a very long day for Susan, she is such a rock.
Thank you for prayers & "well wishes", sooo appreciated.
All of you are included in my prayers of thanks. Blessings & love Jan & all

My prayers for Bruce and his family, but for you and your family as well. All of this can not be easy on your nerves.
