   May 30, 2019     Breast Cancer Fund Raiser

As you may know, I have fought my own battle with breast cancer. During that fight, I began donating chemo care bags to other fighters at Anne Arundel Medical Center and around the country. I love being able to give back to those fighting cancer. I am applying to become a non-profit organization and with that comes fundraising efforts. In addition to my June 8th fundraiser at the Old Bowie Town Grille, I wanted to share that the Bowie Baysox have invited me to their Knock Cancer out of the Park game on June 29th. If you are a fan and want to grab the family to catch the game, please use MY Link to purchase your tickets:https://groupmatics.events/event/ComfyChemoBag. A portion of the proceeds will come back to Shannon’scomfychemocarebagproject.org. I will be there and have a table set up so that I can share my mission with everyone.

Lord knows that I cannot do this alone. With your support, we can continue to give back to those fighting cancer. Thank you for your support and consideration.

God bless.

In Christ,
Shannon McQuillan Norris

Prayer List

Cindy Shifflett wife of Brother Chris Shifflett: 

6/10/19

From Brother Chris Shifflett:

She’s recently been admitted to Hopkins again with a partial blocked intestine. Surgery is not an option and they’re coming up with a game plan to help elevate her condition. We pray that doctors will have sound wisdom and judgment as they work to help her through this. She’s tired but in fare spirits and misses being at home with her family the most. Thanks all for your support and prayers.

 

Brother Ed Steele Updated 5/20/19
From Brother Ed Steele:
I thought I should give you an update on my status since it has changed significantly from my last update.
I met with the Oncology team at Hopkins and with my current health and need for infection control, they feel it necessary for me to complete another round of Consolidation Chemotherapy. This will start as inpatient Monday 04/20 and run through Friday 04/24 with a hopeful release from the hospital by Memorial Day.
During the round of chemo they also hope to have my underlaying fungal infection under control.
The Consolidation Chemotherapy will also keep me in remission which will give them time to get me to the bone marrow transplant by Mid July.
I can’t say enough about all of the support and prayers we have received. My family and I are very appreciative for everything. Please keep us in your prayers and we will keep trusting in the Lord as progress along this journey.
Thank you
Ed
Please keep brother Steele and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he continues on his path to treatment and ultimately a full recovery.
Fraternally, Diane Salen
Vice President
Prince George’s Retired Officers Association
