Barbara has been diagnosed with melanoma and has spots in her lungs, kidneys and other areas as well.
It has been found quite early on and she has a very good nurse who is looking after her. She will start on medication this week. However it is affecting her quite seriously with a lack of energy and with breathlessness.
Obviously it is worrying for all of the Heasman family. Please remember Barbara in your prayers that she will be healed really quickly and pray for Barry and the rest of the family as they come to terms with the illness.
