Jane and Steve Pardoe, with daughters Jo and Emma, were part of our fellowship some fifteen years ago before moving to Canada. We have recently received sad news that Jane, after a month of increasing memory, sight and now motor symptoms, has been diagnosed with Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, which is a degenerative brain disorder. It has a short life expectancy (months) and no treatment options. Jane is currently receiving palliative care. Emma has written to say, 'We are still praying for healing and believing God can do that but also understanding (or trying!) that healing Mum's body here on earth might not be part of His plan. If you feel so led please pray for us all as we continue to journey through this together'.
