Faith Over Fear
Sean LaLonde & Family
On December 6th, 2017, Sean was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma, an advanced non-operable liver cancer and given two weeks to live.
As a pastor in our community, Sean, along with his wife Valerie and their five children are preparing for their second round of treatment at The Immunity Therapy Center in Mexico.
It’s been a hard year but we are so grateful for our community who has joined our family through this battle.

Thank you for all your prayers! What a week.
We raised $5000 with our T-shirt fundraiser. Thank you to every single person who shared or bought a shirt! Can’t wait to see them on you. If you take a pic please send it to me or hashtag it #prayforseanlalonde
After my last update Sean had to get stitches to close up his wound. His blood is not clotting right so he also has been getting vitamin k shots. The hole has healed up now but he is retaining fluid on his right side by his liver so please pray for this to HEAL.
On Monday sean had a ct scan done on his face because he’s had numbness on his right side. While in the hospital his bloodwork was drastically different/ worst then the last time it was taken so they wanted to do an ultrasound of his liver and see why.
The ultrasound showed no tumour growth since September and no change in the blood clot in his liver either. They also said his liver is still functioning well. So they were unable to explain why his blood levels had changed so much.
He has been feeling a bit better this week. His appetite has increased which is huge. He still has very little energy and because he’s not been in constant pain he has been over doing it. He tries to hangout with the kids and get stuff done around the house, this leaves him exhausted and brings some pain. So learning to pace himself is on the schedule.
Please pray for his sleep as he has been up a lot during the night.
Thank you for all your love and prayers. We are getting closer and closer to going back to Mexico. We finally have a good routine of the home treatments and are seeing the positive effects of that so this is encouraging.
Thank you for the continued meals and groceries. This has lightened my load immensely as I have to cook three meals daily for him and three separate different meals for us, plus all his care and the daily work of caring for five kids.
Hope you all enjoy this family day wkn. Hug your families and hold them close, everyday is truly a gift.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one then this, then a man lay down his life for his friend.
