My older brother could use a prayer or 2 if you have the time.

My older brother Mark has been having some health issues of late. Had multiple colonoscopies (and another one coming up) and they found some pre-cancerous polyps on the last one. No big deal with that, really.

However, in doing some other imaging, they also found a mass in his left kidney.

We have a strong family history of cancer (Dad had prostate, his sister colon) So needless to say, he's rather concerned and we're currently in a holding pattern until they can do more imaging and depending on what it shows, possibly a biopsy.

He's 54 and, needless to say, is worried about what they're going to find.

Prayers for him would be greatly appreciated.

Paul
