Don Finnegan

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your prayers and support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Don had acute pancreatitis in Nov 2016 with complications due to accidental perforation of his bile duct during one of the procedures. He got septic twice and  had to be in and out of procedures and surgeries.  The last surgery had the doctor just close up his stomach and said he does not like to operate on a dead person.  We took him home with 3 drains , TPN, 2 IVs for antibiotics , insulin  shots , etc.  By Gods mercy ,with lots of prayers, his body healed.  Praise God! Even the doctors were amazed and considered him a miracle.  Few months later  , he had to have another surgery for incisional hernia. Due to malnourishment , his surgery wounds didn't heal well.  On Aug 31st 2017,  Don went for his last surgery and they placed a mesh on his abdominal wall.   The last few months of this year, Don started getting more abdominal pain. lost weight  and had distention. After a series of testing, we received the result of Don's last biopsy on May 21st. He tested positive for  metastatic pancreatic cancer that spread to his lungs already and is considered stage 4.  Surgery is not an option. Appreciate prayers for Gods miraculous intervention.  Healing for his complete body even now. He did it the last time.  We know He is more than able to do it again.  We do believe God is going to finish the good work He started in Don.   For we know God is  good  and His mercies endure forever. Hallelujah!   With friends and family around the world, we decided to ask for 24-hour prayer support for Don. If you would like to join His Round-the-Clock Prayer Army, please click on Ways to Help.
