Updates about Anne...

This is a new blog I created so that you can all follow the news about Anne and where God is taking us on this journey.

Please be praying for our family!


Tony and family


  1. Hi, Tony and Anne. I hope you don't have to wear these clothes at Mayo . . . Just kidding! We're praying and the Lord Jesus himself intercedes to the Father for you:

    14Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens,[a] Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. 16Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16)

  2. Hi Anne & Tony, We have just heard your news and want you both to know we are interceding for all of you. We'll watch the blog for updates so we can lift you up to the Lord before you even go in for procedures, appts....Love, Cheryl Smith

  3. Hey Anne and Tony, Want you both to know that everyone at Cove. is praying for you, including some of the docs that I've worked with recently. I've also asked my family and friends to join your prayer team. Remember that the Bible says the Lord will never give you anything you can't handle, and also that He will never leave us or forsake us. He is with you both now and forever. Love LeeAnn

  4. Hi Dr. Debari and Family

    God is able!!!!!!!
    He has never never never ever fail us. His word can not return void. If he said it, it is sure as done. He is a healer. The devil can not get glory, because loves the praise(s) of his children. Ask God for his divine healing miracle. His word states " we have not, because we ask not" Jesus is a divine healer. This is only a test, for a later testimony. Is there a balm in gilead?

  5. Dear Anne & Tony,
    Just a note to let you know that George & I are and will continue to send up those arrows.
    G.L.Y. & S.D.W.

  6. Tony and Anne,

    I lit a candle today so that I remembered you both each time I passed it. When fellow employees from Covenant saw it lit they asked who I was praying for. (they know my routine). I told them. They too are praying for you all. The candle will be lit everyday until we get you back.
    Your sister in Christ,

  7. Tony & Anne,
    As Fr. Kelly said "Besides all of us praying, you have the 'big guns'(Sisters Anne & Marianita)praying daily for you." Our Lord is carring you as you go through the treatment process. You're in our every prayer & thought.
    God's Blessing,
    Karen & Tom

  8. Tony&Anne, Sharon and I are both thinking of you and saying prayers. Not too sure about the P.J's you're wearing in that picture, but we'll give you a pass. Keep strong my friend..

  9. Anne & Tony, please know that Gary and I are praying for you and your family. We also have you on the prayer chain, intercessor's list, and the prayer list for our weekly bible study at St. Alban's.

    I was with June Wiesnewski this afternoon and she sends her best.

  10. Hi Dr. DeBari
    It is 1:30 in the morning and God has awaking me just to let you know, " He is GOD". He knows you and your family are still worrying. It is OK to worry, that is human nature. This is only a test! Thru this test you and your family will become stronger and God will get the glory. The blood of Jesus can heal!

    Your Brother in Christ

  11. Hi, guys,

    I am sorry the news wasn't the best, but as Tony said, it is good you had the colonoscopy while there and are near the best location to have the surgery. If that wasn't divine intervention, I don't know what else it would have been. Sounds as if the Holy Spirit is guiding everyone out there.

    Take care and we will keep you in our prayers.

    Love, Pauline Fox

  12. Tony and Anne, Thank you for the continued updates. know that there are so many people praying and thinking of you all. Which brings me to the subject of an address. Beth F. called me today and asked for an update. I gave her your blog address. She mentioned that there are people that would like to send you a card. Can you email me with an address or let me know what you want people to do. I am sorry that the news that you received wasn't exactly what you wanted to hear, but that is typical when you enter into the world of science and cancer. It's a roller coaster ride that can leave you physically and emotionally drained. Keep the faith friend and go with the flow. Let Tony deal with the medical end of it and you work with the spiritual and physical end of it. I remember that everyday I thought of writing a new chapter about my journey. It seemed like it changed from hour to hour and not day to day. The hustle and bustle will slow down after you start the chemo. The candle still burns for you both with love.


  13. Dear Anne and Tony,

    Thank you for your gift of information to all of us. So many of your friends and family are praying for Anne and the entire family. I hope all of you can feel the prayers and comfort we want to bring to all of you.

    We continue to pray and await your return to us.

    My the Holy Spirit watch over and comfort you all.
