Update for Norva Kelly – The oncology doctor is not recommending chemotherapy. In the next few weeks, Norva will be seeing a radiologist but not sure at this time what this means. She will be taking estrogen suppressant medication, which comes with some side effects.    Please pray that God will give Norva wisdom in the decisions she needs to make regarding her treatment. Ron and Nova deeply appreciate our love, concern and prayers.
