Dear Starlite family,
I come to you tonight with very grave news about our beloved Albert.
Albert's cancer is at stage four. It has spread to many other parts of his body. They think it has even spread to his liver, but he will need more tests to be sure.
It is inoperable. They can not remove the cancer from his lungs and other organs. They will try chemo in a couple of weeks to try to buy us a little more time. He has been told he has a couple of months to a couple of years. He will be seeking a second opinion, of course, but he has already seen some of the best doctors in the USA.
Albert wants to be very very open about all of this with all of you. He is hoping that sharing all of what he is going through may help another going through something similar.
I am so sorry to have to bring such harsh news.
As I told Albert on the phone tonight, there is always hope. Tonight we cry, tomorrow we try our best to handle what God has given us.
I ask you all to pray for Albert and his family. Also pray for his girl friend Nanci. She is with him now and he says she has been a god send.
Pray for me, too. As you know, Albert is a brother to me.
We love you all.
