Mark Anderson Health Update: the Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful

The Good News

Praise God! The latest X-ray showed no tumorous cancers on my lungs. We are so thankful. For now, I have a clean bill of health. The doctor said, “Come back in two months.”

I feel good, work full days, and have plenty of energy. I can walk, ride a bicycle, drive a car, and do most of the things I need to do. Thank you for your many prayers.

The Bad News

Unfortunately, cancer returns about 97% of the time for people who have undergone chemotherapy. (I have had 14 rounds of chemo.) This statistic remains a little known fact yet is well documented by and other sources. Our challenge now is to keep cancer from returning.

Cancer has left its legacy. I still have minor pain in my abdomen and my feet are still partially paralyzed. (I use a brace on my left foot and walk like Donald Duck!) No doctor has been able to diagnose these problems, but cancer seems to be the cause.

The Beautiful

God is mighty and powerful. He takes pleasure in healing His children. Kari and I are believing Him to totally remove the pain and paralysis and to keep cancer away forever. His word documents His will for health and healing. I expect to lead a long and healthy life.

The journey continues, yet through all this I am closer to God and to Kari. She has been my greatest prayer warrior and supporter.

I have a greater desire than ever to see more people rescued from the ravages of hell which I have experienced in a minor way. For help and inspiration to see people saved for all eternity, come to Please join Kari and me in leading people to a beautiful life with Christ–our greatest adventure.

God bless each of you, and thank you again for your prayers,
