John Halford

This update on John Halford’s request for prayer is from his daughter Becki Halford Brown.

John Halford
John in better times–we pray he will return to full health soon.

I wish I could give you all a little more of an uplifting update regarding my dad. He is still very weak, hardly eating at all and sleeps a lot of the day.

We (and he) were hoping for a little more progress by now. However, we have been told that his condition is normal—the chemo and radiation he has gone through really takes a toll on the body. Still, it is heartbreaking to see him in a lot of pain and tired all of the time.

Though Dad has been given permission to eat anything he wants now, he says everything tastes like dry cardboard and is hard to get down. His body aches all the time, especially around his shoulders. Although he stays positive and tries to smile, he really is miserable. He so badly wants his life back and to be visiting with his friends. One short visit wipes him out for the rest of the day.

We would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for my dad’s healing and recovery and for some rest for my mom. She is dad’s full time nurse and is very tired too. Cancer is a truly horrible disease that affects the entire family.

  1. Dear John, Pat and Becky,

    We can only imagine the very gut wrenching time you are all going through. All the ups and downs, open questions and frustrations. In prayer we can bring all our concerns to the loving God who experiences the pain of His children and who deeply cares for them.

    His answer will surely come…

    In Christ,
    Santiago and Elke

  2. Dear John, I know you are good fighter and overcomer and that you with God’s help will not give up. I just wanted to let you know you are on my prayers asking our dear Father for a progressive recovery. We pray for Pat too, so that she is able to get enough rest to be able to continue taking care of you through this not so easy challenge. A big hug my friend.

  3. Do hope and pray that with the passing of time your appetite and strength will return. Take your time, get plenty of rest and God will take care of the rest. Thinking of you.

  7. It is hard to imagine your dynamic self in your present state, but you are strong in spirit, and that is in your favor when weak in body. The Good Lord will stick right with you and Pat & family.
    Prayers continue, Friend.
