Dear Tom And Bill,
We the "White House Boys" are with you both in prayer and thought every day sir. This prayer done by our pastor for the men "John Marx" is to reach out to you and to our vice president "Bill Price"  and we hope it brings some comfort to you both in some way. You nor "Bill Price"are alone,we are with you every single day and we love you both.

Prayer from the White House Boys
 
As time passes by, more and more of our White House Boys are struggling with health issues. It is time for us all to stand intentionally in prayer for each other. We can stand strong in the Lord and in the power of His might through our prayers. Sometimes the Lord brings supernatural healing of the flesh, and other times He takes us home to be with Him. In both cases He can bring the peace that goes beyond understanding and the supernatural ability to go through our trials as we put our confidence in Him.
At this time we would like to ask you to join us in prayer for healing for Tom Masterson, the lead attorney for the White House Boys, and Bill Price, the Vice President of the Official White House Boys. They are both fighting cancer. Tom has pancreatic cancer and Bill has bone cancer.
Dear God, we love you and know of your love for us. Your power is supreme. Your wonder is beyond description. Your healing is complete. Your will is our desire. Today we pray for your healing. You know it is our desire that Tom Masterson and Bill Price be healed. Most importantly we pray the prayer of Jesus, “not My will, but Your will be done.” Thank you, Lord, that we can trust Your will. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Pastor John and Fran Marx, Chaplin

July 13, 2016
I just learned yesterday during a discussion with attorney Greg Hoag that our lead attorney Mr. Tom Masterson is recovering from a pancreatic cancer surgery. I beg you will include him in your prayers and thoughts at this time. Mr. Masterson is a very compassionate man when it comes to the plight of the "White House Boys". He has done everything that is possible within his power to do to bring some kind of justice for all of us over the years and continues to do so.  I will be sending out a report later this week to all of you,but lets at this time give our thoughts and prayers to Tom. I am asking for you to please place Tom on your church prayer lists and for you to pray for him. If you can take 5 min. and send a card to him and e-mail him for a speedy recovery, I would be so grateful to you!!!! Here is the address for cards to Tom Masterson or to send him an email.

White House Boys – Prayer for Healing and Unity

Pastors John and Frances Marx

Almighty Father, we lift up all the White House Boys and their families.

Our Father, you know the pain each one has endured and the injustices each one has suffered.

We thank you Father, that you have provided a means by which each one can receive healing, restoration and a peace that goes beyond understanding through your Son, Jesus Christ.

In Jesus’ Name, we pray Lord that you would send the Holy Spirit to minister to each one’s heart and mind.

We thank you Father for your amazing grace and pray that by the Power of the Holy Spirit, each one is empowered to receive and embrace your healing and peace.

Although during the time spent at Florida School for Boys, many were separated and divided because of race, we rejoice that you have made us one body in Christ.

We thank you Lord for the unity only You can bring to enable us to be one family, all brothers and sisters in Christ.

Amen 

    -------------------------------------------

ENJOY THIS PRAISE and Please Continue to Pray for Her)
           
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS (AND YOUR DAYS)
My Cancer Story by Peggy Grantham (wife of White House Boy, John Grantham)
 
    I had a mammogram in December of 2006 which showed “questionable” areas in my left breast.  After a return for an ultrasound the radiologist felt I needed to be referred to a surgeon.  On February 1, 2007, I had a “lumpectomy” for the two areas which were identified.  The doctor felt they looked fine and this would be the end of the problem and life would continue normally. When the pathology came back both of the lumps happened to be enlarged lymph glands.  The doctor had the “privilege” of calling to tell me he had good news and bad news.  I never expected the bad news to outweigh the good news by so much.  I never really felt concern for the biopsy.  I have worked in the medical community for more than 40 years, so I know most of these biopsies turn out to be routine cysts or tissue.  Not this time, no breast cancer, but leukemia.  Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).
 
    After about a year I went for a second opinion because they told me CLL was a wait and see disease.  I was not agreeing to wait and see.   They also told me I did not need a bone marrow biopsy because the lymph glands told us all we needed to know.   I did not know that we needed to know the particular DNA damage to be able to properly treat the disease. I trusted my doctor to know this.  But, I believe in being proactive in your care.  If you are uncomfortable with what you are being told, get a second opinion.  Do it just for your peace of mind.  I had to go out of town at the time because all the oncologists were in one practice and did not see each other’s patients.
 
     The doctor I saw for the second opinion wanted a CT scan and a bone marrow biopsy, along with a lot of blood work.  After a bone marrow biopsy, more than a year later, I learned that my specific DNA damage had a “poor prognosis”.  The doctor who did the bone marrow biopsy told me I was in for a “growling” chemotherapy and there was no way to know if it would help.  At his suggestion I came back to Tallahassee to be followed by a local doctor.  I was not comfortable going back where I had been.  I now see Dr. Amer Rassam of Tallahassee Cancer Institute, who is a very knowledgeable and compassionate person.   In the summer of 2009, I began the chemotherapy which consisted of three medications: Ritxan, Fludura, Cytoxan.  On the first day of each round of treatments all three medications were infused, along with an antihistamine, anti-nausea medication and a steroid.  The next two days were only two medications with the “little extras”.  Then I would get a three week break before the next round was administered.  This continued for seven months.  It is scheduled for 6 months, but I developed an infection after two rounds and had to be hospitalized for two weeks and had to skip the treatment that month.  I completed the definitely “growling” treatment in December of 2009.  In January 2010, I was hospitalized for another week for neutropenia (I had hardly any neutrophils).
 
    In the spring of 2010, the doctor told me it was time for me to look into a stem cell transplant.  I was referred to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.  After more testing I was told I am a candidate for stem cell transplant and the testing of my family was begun.  I only had one sibling who qualified as a donor, but she was not a match.  After going through the National Bone Marrow Registry and testing for me we learned that I have “rare” antigens and there was no match.  By my three month follow up, one match had been found, but only a 9 in 10 match.  My chemo therapy has been so successful it is too dangerous, in relation to my current health, to chance anything less than a perfect match.  The search is on.  We have been looking for over a year for that perfect person. (If you are between the ages of 18 and 60, go to bethematch.com, complete the questionnaire and see if you are my match.  If you are not between those ages, or you are rejected as a donor for some reason, you can help with a contribution to help register the people who can donate and the registry’s processing of the registrations.)
 
    In January 2010, I had my yearly mammogram (and ultrasound, as it happens) and there were some probable calcifications and I was returned to the surgeon to consider another biopsy.  Because there were so many areas it was decided we could not biopsy all of them and it would be like “looking for a needle in a haystack”.  The recommendation was to repeat the mammogram in six months.  This was done in July, and there was now a small lump in the lower portion of my left breast.  I was sent for a needle biopsy, but the lump was solid, so nothing could be aspirated.  I was scheduled for another biopsy, lumpectomy.  With plenty of margin removed to assure a good biopsy and the doctor feeling good about the outcome, he got to make another phone call, without the good news portion this time.  None of the margins were clear.  Cancer all the way around.  Ductile carcinoma in situ.  Since part of my leukemia is the lack of a tumor suppressant gene, I opted for a bilateral mastectomy, which was approved by my insurance.  Surgery was scheduled for August 11, 2010.  I stayed three days in the hospital. The biopsy report now showed the cancer was in my entire left breast, now called Ductile Carcinoma Infiltrate.  December 20, 2010, I began reconstructive surgery.  I am almost finished with that process, as of June 2011.  I am truly pleased with those results.
 
    As a result of the deletion of the tumor suppressant gene and the occurrence of a cancer other than the leukemia, I must keep a close watch for other signs of cancer.  If you are over 50 and have to have colonoscopies every five years consider this.  Now, I have to have mine once a year.  I have blood work and CT Scans every three months and a bone marrow biopsy every six months.  Remember to count your blessings.
 
    When I think of counting my blessings the ones that come to mind are my wonderful caregiver husband, John, my children, my grandchildren, my mother, my siblings, my friends, my fellow church members, my worldwide prayer warriors and my cancer.  I know, “She counts her cancer a blessing”.  After my first visit to MD Anderson Cancer Center I realized how blessed I was with my cancer (that was before the breast cancer, but I still feel the same).  No matter how bad you think your situation is, you have only to look around at any place in the center and you will understand.  Not only was that visit an eye opener, but through my journey I have learned to reevaluate what is important in life and now understand so much more about eternity.  Everyone dies, no one lives forever.  When I think that I was told I have a terminal disease, I realize we are all terminal, we were born that way.  None of us is promised tomorrow, but we are promised eternal life. 
 
    When you have medical treatment everyone protects your dignity and privacy.  I tell them they can give me chemotherapy in the middle of the mall if it would help someone else.  I will talk to anyone about my cancers, treatment and reconstruction.  We need to be supportive of each other.  My friends who have been through cancer treatment tell me they appreciate my calls because people who have not experienced cancer and treatment are uncomfortable talking to you, and are afraid they may say the wrong thing.  Support your friends through their treatment and survivorship.  Talk about the real issues and do not be afraid.  Let them tell you how they really feel and talk about their fears.  Think of them as prayer requests.
 
    There is a bicycle ride here in Tallahassee that was founded by a cancer patient and his family.  It benefits the local cancer foundation and is called the Ride for Hope.  This year I am honored to be the Hero for Hope.  Because of my cancers and my need for a stem cell transplant there has been a focus on the National Marrow Donor Registry.  My friends across the country have become more aware of the Registry since my diagnosis and have helped bring more attention to the Registry and becoming a donor.  Of course, we hope to find a donor with those “rare” antigens I possess, but hopefully many others will find donors because of these efforts.  One of my cousins became a donor this past year due to this emphasis.  I am so thankful for the opportunities I have had because of my diagnosis.
 
    I am as excited today about birthdays as I was as a child, and do not forget it.  Learn to count your blessing (and your years).
Peggy GranthamMay our Lord be with all the White House Boys and their Families, as they walk through the difficulties of this world. Let's not forget the spouses and families of the White House Boys as well.   We also pray for salvation for all prisoners and their families.

Please continue to pray for her!

Praise God that Robert Straley is healing really well from Heart Surgery! May he continue to recover daily.

As of 1-22-12
Please note an added to prayer to those posted on Jan. 19th. White House Brothers Charlie, George and Roy have had the 2nd death in their family in 2 weeks. Their brother, Junior Fudge passed last week, and his wife Helen (Joyce) passed away yesterday. Their sister Kay just had heart surgery and was in ICU. Their sister, Tina, is fighting cancer. Kay and Tina live in Texas, so the Fudge Bros. don't get to see them very often. Needless to say, their plate is full, and the family covets your prayers during these trying times. (Note: funeral info for Helen is on the Loving Memory page.)

Please pray for Peggy Marx. She is on the way to the hospital with symptoms of heavy chest, numbness in face (last night) and other symptoms that don't sound very good. May God be with Peggy and give wisdom to the doctors.

Also, please pray for Babbs Cooper. She received strict orders from the doctor that she must follow to a "T" - "or else", so lets pray and encourage her that she take it easier from now on, and get the rest that the doctor has ordered!

As always, please keep the Brodnax family in your prayers, and Mike Sapp and his gal Debbie. If anyone knows of others who need prayer, please let us know.

Prayer request for Mike Sapp- Is feeling a little better but has to have MRI soon to take a good look at things.

The Fudge Brothers (Charlie, George, and Roy - all WHBz) are in need of prayer - Their older brother Floy Lee Fudge (aka Junior) passed away yesterday afternoon. SEE
IN LOVING MEMORY PAGE FOR DETAILS. In addition to that, their "baby sister", Tina, was just told that her cancer has spread. Charlie is trying to balance family along with work to prepare for his February Auction. Pray also for their siblings, nieces, nephews, children and grandchildren as they travel for the funeral services. Their family is spread out all over the country. Charlie is running back and forth with family daily and Ms Diane has been on meds for lung infection for weeks.

Also special needs for prayer for Brodnax family. It is very hard for them all now that Pops is not with them. In Loving Memory, Brother John.

Let us pray for healing and Peace for all. Amen

LENOX WILLIAMS -   Bill Haynes just posted in our guestbook that Lenox Williams has passed away.  
Here is the link to the obituary.  http://jctimesobits.blogspot.com/2010/07/lenox-edward-williams.html My guess is that this news will evoke many different feelings and emotions for many of the WHBz, but I'm only here to report the news, not to comment on it.  Your comments, however, are always welcome in  the guestbook or forum, but please remember... no profanity, etc.  We need to keep the website family friendly.  On the other hand, it might be good for some of you to discuss how you felt when you heard the news.
