Many of you will remember when Jill was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2017. If not, you can read the whole story (well, most of it) by starting at the earliest post and reading through to today.

Since completing her treatment, Jill has had regular MRIs to monitor any changes, and she’s been sailing along with nothing to report.

This week, however, Jill’s scan showed two small areas of tumor growth on the left side (her previous tumor was on the right hemisphere). We are so thankful for those regularly scheduled MRIs! Jill has had no symptoms to indicate any change, so the scan has made it possible for the oncologist to detect cellular changes at an early stage. In fact, the doctor has cleared her to go on a long-awaited trip to Australia and New Zealand this month with David and their son, Zack.

Would you pray with us for Jill, David and the whole Kinnaman family? Pray for their precious time together on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, that they would comfort and encourage each other—and have some epic fun! Pray for wisdom as they decide with Jill’s doctors what course of treatment to take. Pray that they draw close to Jesus and seek him at every step, especially when the way isn’t clear.

Thank you for walking alongside the Kinnaman family! If you’d like to send a message to the Kinnamans, feel free to do so in the comments section below. As you might expect, David and Jill will be focused on her treatment and their kids. We will keep you updated as we are able, and you can check this website for updates.

Thank you for praying!

Sincere thanks,
Team Kinnaman
