Pray for David and Trichelle Beeke

David and Trichelle Beeke

David and Trichelle Beeke

Please remember in prayer my 28-year-old niece, Trichelle Beeke, together with her husband David, and their children: Breyden (6), Quinten (3), and Emilee (1), as well as their parents. Trichelle was diagnosed with cancer last week and is undergoing a flurry of tests. Here is an update from David’s parents:

Dear Family and Friends,

Trichelle had her detailed mammogram this morning and she and Dave met with the surgeon this afternoon.  They were thankful for the surgeon’s experience, communication skills and patience.  The surgeon spent an hour and a half with them explaining test results and options. The cancer is ductal invasive carcinoma.

Lumpectomy surgery is scheduled for next week Friday, August 2, the Lord willing.  The lump and its marginal zones will be removed as well as a number of lymph nodes.  These will be sent to the lab for detailed analysis.  The results are critical.  If the marginal areas indicate any traces of cancer, then further surgery will be required. If several lymph nodes are infected, this would not be a good sign.   If no further surgery is required, after some days of recuperation, Trichelle will commence treatments.  The nature of her treatments will be determined in consultation with her oncologist, after the lab results are known.

Please pray that Trichelle’s surgery may go well and that the results would be positive, indicating that the cancer has not spread further.  We covet your prayers and look to our gracious Lord and Saviour.  We plead for His compassionate heart and healing hands.

Thank you for your concern, love and prayer,

Jim & Ruth

  4. We certainly will pray!
    Our daughter has had cancer twice, and is free of it now!
    Remember, cancer is a bully, and fear is it’s engine! Keep you focus on our loving Father in worship and praise, believe Him, and follow His steps as He lights the way!
    And He will keep your hearts calm, much to the dismay of the enemy!!
    Glory to God

    Father, thank you for this one who can face this tremendous trial knowing that she is in the center of Your will. Hear the prayers of family and friends who plead with You for her healing. Fill her and her husband and children with Your Word, your Spirit and the peace that passes understanding. We thank You in advance for the outcome, whatever it may be. And may You, and You alone, receive all the glory. Amen.
