The family/friends of George and Ruth Cook are trusting our Sovereign God to raise up supporters. Please join this endeavor of love.

My father, George Cook, was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer in Jan 2008. He went through chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery but the pain continued to increase and the cancer continued to spread. His pain was so great that he had to have a pain pump implanted which later had to be removed due to a serious infection.

Through several God orchestrated events my parents learned of an experimental stem cell treatment in Seoul Korea that was very expensive ($60,000). In faith, they went to Korea in September 2008 - at which time my dad was not able to walk much unassisted.

While there (six weeks), Spring Valley Baptist Church raised a considerable amount of money to offset their expenses (PRAISE THE LORD). The treatment was a tremendous success (PRAISE THE LORD!!) and he returned able to walk SEVERAL MILES with little to no pain.

Over the past year his cancer has begun to spread and they were recently informed that it was aggressively spreading through his spinal column and other areas. We learned today (3/8/11) that it has spread to his skull and the doctors are very concerned that the cancer will pass the bone-blood barrier and enter his spinal chord. This will increase the pain drastically and eventually kill him.

My parents are continuing to look for treatment options that will most likely require large amounts of money. Returning to Seoul may not be a viable option but only time will tell. PLEASE JOIN US IN RAISING $60,000 SO THEY CAN RECEIVE ANY CUTTING EDGE TREATMENT THAT IS AVAILABLE.
