Another Speed Bump

So I haven't posted on here since last November. Beau went for his first round of scans then and the reports were good.

Alot has happened since last November...Beau and Jessica got married on January 16th. They moved to Cornelius, NC (near the Charlotte area) so Beau could pursue his racing dreams. Beau began working in Steve Turner's race shop for Turner Motorsports. He ran a few late model races at Gresham Motorsports Park and did very well. During this time, he was also going to M.D. Anderson every three months for scans and a meeting with Dr. Benjamin. Each times the scans have been clear.

Until last week....

Dr. Benjamin found a tumor in Beau's shoulder on Thursday. We know no details right now but Beau and Jessica will be heading back to M.D. Anderson on Sunday to get a biopsy and do more scans. They don't even know if it is the same kind of tumor as before. As we learn more about what is going on, I will post it here.

Please continue to pray for Beau, Jessica and their families as they face the unknown...but remember that they continue to hope in the One that DOES know.



"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body." 2 Cor. 4:7-10
