On September 21 2004 Amy was given the devastating news of a brain tumor that at first look thought to be untreatable but then at the second look was decided that just maybe radiation would work. She had about 7 weeks of radiation treatment with the tumor shrinking 80% and as time went on it continued to shrink. After 3 years the tumor was stable and Amy has been about 8 years in remission, until December 6 2012 when Amy had a routine check and the doctor noticed a cyst growing on the small tumor.
Amy and her family are devastated by this news. Here is a post from Amy herself. Please consider stopping by her CaringBridge site and give her some encouragement and love. Thanks!

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
