An update about Olya Bouchard

On Friday 2 weeks ago, Olya had a 5-hr operation to remove her tumour and 3 of her ribs under which it was growing. The operation was successful and hopefully the tumour is now safely gone. That same evening she wrote: "Thank you for your support. It helps me go through this time without worrying. I am doing fine. Please send my love to all who thought about me all this time and today especially." And to this we would like to add our thanks too for your collective and private prayers. Please continue to pray for her complete recovery. It means so much to us and our family. Peter and Rosemay
