"...Either Way, I win!"

This is how David's quote ends. Faith! David has it!! David and Elizabeth are members of our Sunday School class at LBC. David has had a rare brain tumor for the last seven years but of the last two it has started to grow. With this past year being a year of tests, observations, and several visits to John Hopkins, David's faith has not wavered. The tumor is located in a very sensitive part of his brain. One of the complications from his tumor is that it's pressing on the back of his eyes and he's had visual disturbances for quite some time. Well, Thursday a week ago David had surgery at John's Hopkins to remove part of the tumor. The doctors believe they got 65-70% percent. They could not get it all because of where it was located and David knew this before sugery. Now the doctors are waiting on biopsies of the tumor to determine if radiation is needed- this can only be done once- the series of radiation. Over the last year one wouldn't know David even had a tumor. His outlook has been very positive, he laughs just the same, and is always smiling. David's surgery was expected to last 5 to 6 hours but instead it lasted 2.5. The surgery went well and he's well on his way to a great recovery. We are still praying for you David and Elizabeth! We love you! Here's David's entire quote! He has FAITH!

"As strange as it may seem, I am actually happy for the decision for surgery. First of all, as a Christian, I have been at peace with this entire journey. The way I look at it, as long as I continue to live, I get to stay here with my beautiful, incredible wife, but if God chooses otherwise, I go to Heaven to live with my Savior! Either way, I win!"- David Tucker

" And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must be believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." Hebrews 11:6

Thank you David for being an example of faith for all of us!
