Meals for The Henkels
Posted Oct 9, 2020 by Mary Martin
We are restarting the meal train for Lana, Russ, Jeremy and Jonathan. Lana is still undergoing treatment and Russ recently broke his foot and might need surgery.
Meals would be really helpful to them during this time, so please consider signing up for a date. The calendar has been updated to include a meal for each day and we hope to fill it up!
Thanks for your prayers for the Henkel family. They are grateful for your support!

PS -- if you are unable to bring a meal at this time, you could also drop an uplifting card with a restaurant gift certificate in the mail!

Lana has stage 4 stomach cancer which can not be operated on. She also has cancer all in her abdomen. The cancer metastasized to the ovary and appendix which were removed. She also had a PET scan which showed a mass in her thyroid which we will find out if it is cancer on Wednesday. We will also find out her chemotherapy schedule on Wednesday. She has an appointment Monday to see if she will get drains put in her stomach. She has good days and bad days. If you would like to visit please call before you come. She may be having a bad day. Thanks for your prayers and meals. They are greatly appreciated.

Lana’s surgery went well. The doctors determined that the cancer did not start in the ovaries. It started in the appendix and metastasized into her abdomen and her stomach and ovaries. She will have a endoscopy today or tomorrow to see if there is cancer in the stomach. If there is cancer in the stomach she will probably have chemotherapy in 4-6 weeks in Shelby. Thank you for all your support.

Pray for Lana as she undergoes surgery and Russ, Jonathan, and Jeremy as they support her through recovery. Thank you, everyone!
