Amber (Schnippert) Patrick

The following prayer request is from Amber’s father and GCI legal counsel, Bernie Schnippert.

Although it is time for another health update from me, and things are not going well (I am not recovering from a bad reaction to a medicine), this update will be about an even more serious Schnippert health matter.

We had thought that my middle daughter, Amber Patrick, who is age 37, had beaten breast cancer. However, we learned recently that the cancer spread into her back and other vital organs. Five or six of her vertebrae are cracked by the cancer, and it is in her lungs, bones and liver. Unless she responds almost miraculously to the nuclear and chemical therapy, the prognosis is very grave.

On top of our other health problems, my family, daughters in-laws, etc. are finding themselves in shock, dismay, and mental exhaustion over this serious matter, with tears flowing freely.

Please pray for Amber, for my wife Arlene (who now has two close relatives with cancer – me and Amber) – and all our relatives. Amber is married to Josh Patrick, the son of Don and Joyce Patrick, and has a 5-year-old daughter, Megan, who needs a mother.

Cards and letters are encouraged and may be sent to:

  8. Bernie and Arlene, it really is hurtful to hear of your pain in dealing with this latest heavy health crisis. A married daughter who is a mother–I can only begin to imagine. It hits at a time of setback for you as well. God remains good all the time and we wait to see how He will work these huge issues out. Prayers are with you from us and our church.

  9. We remember you and your then family when you came to Calgary back in the early 70’s. Marlene and I are praying for you and your family at this very difficult time.

  10. Dear Bernie and Arlene,
    Faye and I have been and will continue more so with all your family in Christ to hold up your family’s hands in prayer asking for relief, for peace, for healing and the sustaining power of Christ as long as your awesome witness of suffering continues. Having two beautiful daughters, one through birth(35)and the other through marriage to our son(36), we are knit with you in heart, mind and soul. We are joining with all to pray unceasingly. Love sincerely, Tony and Faye
