The Trials of One NLM Reader

I received news that one of our number -- a young American NLM reader who is in the U.S. Navy -- has received some very troublesome news about his health:

I have just returned from Richmond, VA and Bethesda, MD, where I met with two different Neurosurgeons. Both agreed that the tumor can not be completely removed, and that a biopsy is the best option, to be followed by radiation therapy to attempt to slow the growth of the tumor. In the meantime, my headaches are getting worse, and I'm slowly losing strength on the right side of my body.

His name is Philip Johnson and he has established a website to chronicle all of this: In Caritate Non Ficta.

He has asked for prayers. Perhaps our priests might offer some Masses for him.
