Prayers requested for Jesse Loudermilk


Here's the latest news on Jesse Loudermilk. This Thursday, January 24, Jesse is having a very serious six to eight hour double surgery to remove a malignant tumor on his back. This tumor is called a Plasmocytoma tumor which has totally destroyed his lower 5th lumbar vertebra. This vertebra will have to be removed and a synthetic vertebra will replace it. Then his entire spine will have to be reinforced with rods and pins. This in itself is cause for lots of prayers.

He will be in the hospital for fiveto six days and then will have to heal for about two more weeks before he starts six weeks of intensive back radiation. Later he will be referred to Moffett Cancer Center in Tampa. If anyone would like to send him cards, please address them to: NCH Healthcare Hospital, 350 7th St. North, Naples, FL34102. The phone is (239) 436-5000.

His home address is Jesse Loudermilk, 116 Gulfview Ave., Ft. Myers Beach, FL33931.

Thank you for your support and care.

Rose & Jim Loudermilk Ft. Myers Beach/West Bank
