Richard Nickels Diagnosed with Cancer,
Giving & Sharing Bookstore Closed
GILLETTE, Wyoming -- Richard Nickels, 58, has been diagnosed with cancer and given 6 to 9 months to live. The Victor Kubik Web site reports that the disease specifically is adrenal cancer which has spread to other parts of the body.
Richard founded the popular Giving & Sharing (G & S) bookstore in 1978. Bookstore operations have been indefinetly stopped to give Rich time to battle and receive treatment for his illness.
In a March 22nd annoucement posted on the Bible Sabbath Association Web site, office manager Shirley (Richard's wife) stated:
"My husband Richard Nickels has been diagnosed with cancer. They say he has 6 to 9 months to live but we are going to Cancer Treatment Centers of America because they have had some wonderful results. We believe that God will heal him if it is his will."
Although the bookstore has been closed, plans are to continue updating the Giving & Sharing Web site and to keep publishing the online newsletter Church of God News.
Cards and letters can be sent to:
Richard/Shirley Nickels, 3316 Alberta Drive, Gillette, WY 82718, USA
Your prayers for Richard's healing would be most appreciated.
