From the Minnesota Family Council:
Special Prayer Request
December 6, 2007
Dear Friend of Minnesota Family Council,
I'm writing to you as a supporter of MFC to request prayer for Tom Prichard and his family. As you know, Tom has been with the Minnesota Family Council for many years, and has been a valiant warrior in defense of the family, working diligently to advance biblical principles in the public arena, all that time.
Tom was recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL), an aggressive cancer of the lymph system. NHL is usually very responsive to chemotherapy, which is the normal treatment for this type of cancer. He will be starting six months of chemotherapy treatments soon.
We would very much appreciate your prayers for Tom and his family. Please pray for them through the six-month treatment process ahead. Specifically, for strength to endure the treatments, the ability to continue to be effective during the upcoming legislative session, and for Tom's healing and full recovery.
Tom shares the following:
"The discovery of cancer recently was a definite surprise given I've been in good health. I'm at peace with my circumstances, because I'm convinced the Lord is definitely in control. I plan to keep working though I know chemo treatments will force some time off here and there. I would certainly appreciate your ongoing prayers for healing and a speedy recovery."
On behalf of Tom and his family, and all of us at Minnesota Family Council, thank you for your prayers and continued support during this time. We thank God for your partnership with us for the sake of His Kingdom.
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; give thanks in all circumstances!
Blessings this Christmas and always,
John Helmberger, CEO
Minnesota Family Council

This is one of the crassest things I've read. It would be different if this was a fundraising appeal to help with the Prichard family's special circumstances during the treatment.
