Health Update


Dear friend and prayer partner! I greet you in the name of the Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ who is most worthy to be praised!As you know from my last news update, I am facing prostate cancer surgery - the removal of my prostate. My doctor here in Kingston, Jamaica and I have discussed the options and he has suggested that if I can get the robotic surgery that would be preferable to regular surgery. This kind of surgery cuts down on blood loss and recovery time is much quicker than traditional surgery. But such a surgery is not available in Jamaica so I must get it done in the USA. The costs are still to be determined as they depend on where I do the surgery and if I can find a doctor (and hospital) to waive or reduce their fee. But it could be in the range of US$40,000 to $50,000 at cost! Could be more! Remember that I don't have health insurance!Several persons are checking to find a urologist who would help me by waiving his/her fee and thus lowering the costs. I am asking you to do the same. Can you check with your friends and contacts for a urologist who would perform the surgery pro bono and possibly a hospital that would reduce their fee! God is STILL in the miracle working business. Please see what you can do to help me. Thanks!I would prefer to do this either in Atlanta or New York areas, as I have family there or in Indiana or Miami where I have lived and have lots of support.In the meantime, a friend of mine, Pastor Kingsley Grant in Miami, with the support of the RENEWED Ministries Board in Indiana and other friends - Gilbert Harris and David Nunes - has decided to start a GoFundMe account to help raise support for my medical expenses. The monies donated will be transferred to RENEWED Ministries and they will pay my medical bills! I cannot receive any of this money personally as that would require me to pay taxes on it. Here's the link for the GoFundMe account:https://www.gofundme.com/medical-funds-for-courtney-richardsIf you are in the USA and wish tax credit for your donation, then you need to give to RENEWED Ministries by sending your DESIGNATED check for "Courtney's Medical Expenses" to: RENEWED Ministries, P.

I am very grateful to each of your for being there for me during this phase of my journey! I deeply love and appreciate each of you and all that you are to me and do for me! God is in control of my life and body and His word says "that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28)God bless you richly and abundantly with His uncommon grace and favour! Coram Deo!Always in His grip,Courtney Here is a site where you can donate money for Courtney's surgery:
