So do not fear, for I am with you
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God
I will strengthen you and help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Isaiah 41:10

From Madeleine:
Today I received the news of my most recent CT scan. However, it was not at all what I wanted to hear. The tumor (or spot of cancer ) in my liver has grown. 
I have mixed feelings about the news. I am happy the cancer has not spread other places, yet I am beyond frustrated that I am once more faced with bad news. So Tuesday, I will meet with the melanoma specialist at UCSF and discuss the next step of treatment. 
I owe a big thank you to everyone who has been there supporting me throughout this battle and reminding me to keep my head up and keep fighting. I will not let this cancer beat me! ♥
There is no doubt about it - we are disappointed. But it is also amazing to see the resilience in Madeleine even just hours after receiving this news. Thank you for the encouragement we have already received from so many people. Every word, and every prayer means so much. Now, we need wisdom to know the best steps forward. As always, thank you for your prayers.

I'm sorry to hear that your fight has gotten that much harder. I will continue to pray for you and please know that I think of you every day. I love you. You are a warrior princess and my hero! My wife Beth has kept me up to speed through her contact with your mother at the health club. Please let me know if you need anything as I will do whatever I can to help you!
Love always
