Urgent Request

Jane is scheduled to go to San Francisco on Sunday with her sister.  The purpose of the trip is to get GAMA Knife surgery and meet with Dr. Melisko.  Jane will not be staying in S.F. but will return on Thursday.

Over the last week we have been in contact with UCSF a number of time and they have been working with Blue Shield/Cross to get the insurance company to approve the procedure.

At this time it looks like powers to be at Blue Shield are balking at the approval. They are overriding the recommendations of the doctor and it looks like they will not approve the procedure.

In any event, Jane will still go to S.F. on Sunday to meet with Dr. Melisko and Dr. Sneed, the GAMA Knife doctor.

Here is a news story about a lady who has a the same cancer as Jane, but Jane has had the whole brain radiation:

The two doctors that would be doing Jane’s procedure are in the video, Dr. Sneed and Dr. McDermott.


Right now the most important thing we can pray for is Jane’s complete healing and then for the insurance company to approve the procedure.

  1. We got the post, and will be praying. We’re with several other VLC families this weekend up in the mountains, and we will all pray.

    Keep us posted,
    Los Lebos.

  2. Jane & Ray,

    I just wanted to let you know that there is an awsome group of folks fasting and praying for you this weekend! People from the church who know and love your family greatly!

    We are asking the Lord to break down the Enemy’s strongholds over BlueCross/Shield, that the the hearts of their decisions makers be turned towards the Lord, and that the Lord will deliver a miracle in time for Jane’s appointment, for her and all the other men and women served by BlueCross/Shield.

    May God’s word for you in Zephaniah 3:17 bring you all great comfort and joy:

    “The Lord you God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

    Diane 🙂
