Thank you God for continuing to answer Prayers and Thank you ALL for Praying. I spoke with Dr St John at UCLA Medical and she has informed me that all test have come back 100!% clean. NO CANCER!!!!!! It is impossible to express my family and my appreciation for the overwhelming out pour of love, support and prayers. I was on my threshing floor dealing with the stronghold of fear. You all covered and encourage me. To God be the Glory
It was a very scary time for Michael Irvin, and it was obvious with how vulnerable he made himself on social media. Cowboys fans, and really all people in general, are extremely thrilled to hear this good news as this is a matter where sports teams don’t matter. We’re all rooting for each other in the game of life.
Cheers to continued health for Michael Irvin.
