Lee is not a canditate for a liver transplate due to the tumor being to large. The recommended plan of action was to shrink the tumor with radiation theorpy so they would then be able to remove it.
On November 13th he went to have a biopsy of his lungs and the Doctor told Lee that other than a pin size dot that was believed to be a bronchities scar and nothing to fear, his lungs were clear.
On Friday, November 17th they were to hear the offical results of the biopsy and receive the treatment plan to proceed with shrinking the tumor. Lee received a phone call from the coordinator at Piedmont who told him that the orginal treatment plan they had talked about was not going to be a broad enough plan and they felt it has developed into his gallbladder and he has concerning nodules on his lungs. After receiving the news from the coordinator he was told they would try and get him in after Thanksgiving with another specialist.
November 20th Kelly took him to Piedmont because he has been sick and not feeling well. He was admitted and was to see an Oncologist to discuss a broader treatment plan. After seeing the doctor he was told it didn't look good. They said the tumor is very rare and they are not certain how to move forward with treatment. He needs to get to MD Anderson in Houston for treatment and Piedmont is going to help with the paperwork to get them there.
Lee is the fulltime pastor at Gracepointe Church, as well as a wedding officiant for Sensational Ceramonies in Atlanta. His wife Kelly, works fulltime and is an hourly employee. At this point he has had to give up his weddings indefinately and Kelly has missed alot of work and will continue to do so during this process.
We are asking everyone to stand together with them and help fill the gap during this difficult and unseen road they have before them. They are going to need lots of prayers, love and support getting all of this worked out and getting him to Houston for the treatment that he needs.
We are asking most importantly that you leave a note of encouragement and a prayer for them. If God so lays it upon your heart to help with a financial donation it would be greatly appreciated.
We know that our God is in control and has Lee in His hands and we anxiously await the celebration that will be had over his healing.
