Andy Whitfield (Actor in the series "Spartacus") and all who die of Cancer

Pray for Andy Whitfield
and all who die from Cancer.
Andy Whitfield, age 39, an actor in the TV series, "Spartacus:  Blood and Sand", died on September 11, 2011, in Sydney, Australia, of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a form of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system and migrates throughout the body.  Andy was born in Amlwch, Wales in 1974.  He studied engineering at the University of Sheffield and worked in Lidcombe as an engineer before moving to Sydney, Australia in 1999.

In March of 2010, Andy Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and began undergoing treatment immediately in New Zealand.  After treatment, the disease reoccurred. 

Andy Whitfield is survived by numerous loving fans, friends and relatives including his wife, Vashti and two children. 

Today, I went to a local food store and the clerk asked me for a one dollar donation to "Lupus" research, which I gave. Lupus is an auto-immune disease which most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. It leads to death and so does Parkinson's Disease, Lou Gerhrig's disease, Huntington's Disease etc. etc. and so on, ad infinitum. 

Last month I heard of the death of a woman I know who died at age 49 of Scleroderma, which is a disease that I had never heard of before this. 

Jesus, pray for us.
There are hundreds of diseases that can kill you, before your time to die.

The governments of the western world and the governments of the third world and the freak-governments and the dictatorship-governments spend $500 million dollars per day, world-wide, on war and oppression.  If these governments would give this money to medical research, many of these diseases could be eradicated. 

Perhaps then, cancer and all of these other killer diseases would be a thing of the past or at least somewhat curable. 

God help us all.
