rickey-gooch-announcementHey Friends :)
I know I will keep saying this but thanks to all of you for standing with us in prayer through this difficult time. Rickey is officially through with the treatments! However now we are praying him through the recovery process. Mama and Bill are bringing him to Myrtle Beach Singing in the Sun to be with us for the rest of the week. He will stay on the bus most of the time but it will be a nice change of pace for him.         Love and prayers, Karen

Update on Rickeyhttp://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/update-on-rickey/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/update-on-rickey/#comments Mon, 13 Apr 2015 20:35:52 +0000 http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/?p=4165 Hey Friends,

rickey-gooch-announcementThis week is Rickey’s the final week of treatments! Four radiations and one chemo left.

I am writing to you for a special reason. Over the past six weeks, Rickey has worked very hard to swallow and eat. Since the cancer is located in the left tonsil and surrounding lymph nodes, the radiation has literally burned his throat to the point of almost unbearable pain. He literally has no taste buds or saliva. On top of this, the chemo has made him very weak and nauseated. He has been taking medicines for these symptoms but now they are not working as well. He has lost weight and is very weak.

Today is a hard day. This will be a hard week. While I was waiting on Rickey to get his radiation treatment, I began to pray and ask the Lord to strengthen him and to build his immune system especially this week. Will y’all stand with me in prayer believing? Will you pray bold prayers for Rickey? In all of my years of traveling and having had the wonderful opportunity of knowing so many of you, I have never been so eager to reach out and request something so heartfelt. My heart is breaking for my husband and I knew I could count on you to stand with me in prayer for his healing and to pray him through this last stretch. I know God is willing and able!! We have been so overwhelmed by your continued prayers, love, and support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you dearly.

A Note From Karenhttp://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/a-note-from-karen-4/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/a-note-from-karen-4/#comments Thu, 02 Apr 2015 04:36:24 +0000 http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/?p=4120 Hey Friends!

rickey-gooch-announcementSo many of you have been asking about Rickey. Thank you all for the prayers. We can definitely feel the strength and peace from the Lord. Honestly, we could not have made it this far without prayer. Rickey began his treatments on March 3. He started feeling the side effects from the chemo and radiation well into his second week. I remember thinking about how in the world he would make it seven weeks when he was already having difficulty swallowing. It has been a major challenge for him but he is plowing through it with the Lord’s help. As his caregiver, I have never experienced anything so heart riveting. Watching my husband struggle has been very difficult. I can’t fix it. All I can do is pray. The best way that I can describe it is, right now we are right in the middle of a storm. The waves are raging all around us, but Jesus is in the boat with us. Very soon the waves will calm and the storm will pass. Until then, we will keep moving forward. One of the many things we have learned from this trial is that God is bigger than cancer!!! He is not surprised or taken aback by our circumstances. We are very thankful that He is with us every step of the way.

rugged-wood-cross-with-thorn-crownThis week we celebrate the most powerful time of the year, Easter. Thank the Lord for dying on an old rugged cross for us, that we may have eternal life. On the third day He arose from the grave!! Now He sits at the right hand of the Father and He intercedes for you and me. Thank you Jesus!

Have a wonderful Easter :)

A Note From Karenhttp://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/a-note-from-karen-3/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/a-note-from-karen-3/#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 20:11:00 +0000 http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/?p=4032 Hey Friends :)

rickey-gooch-announcementMy husband, Rickey Gooch, is the strongest and hardest working man I know. It is an honor and a blessing to be his wife.

A few weeks ago, Rickey discovered a knot in his neck. After consultation with his doctor Rickey was prescribed two rounds of antibiotics. After the knot did not go away, additional testing was ordered.

After a neck scan, two biopsies, a CT scan and a PET scan, Rickey was diagnosed with squamous carcinoma, a type of cancer. Thank the Lord, the cancer is confined to Rickey’s left tonsil area and has not spread anywhere else within his body. As a result of this diagnosis, Rickey will begin a series of treatments in the coming days. The doctors feel very confident that the treatments will be successful and this will soon be behind us.

During the weeks Rickey and I have been dealing with this, the Lord has shown us such mercy and grace. He has reminded us of His sovereignty and even when we were at our lowest, we could feel His loving arms wrapping around us and covering us with peace that surpasses all understanding. Truthfully, we would not have made it this far without the Lord. Even though we are devastated, we realize the Lord is strengthening us more every day as we move forward.

Because of this situation Rickey and I stayed home for a few days to attend doctors appointments. We are so proud of our group, though, as they continued to travel to honor our commitments. Rickey and I want to offer our sincere appreciation to Katy Peach for filling in for me and doing an amazing job. Also, we give special thanks to Susan, Jeff, Matthew, Kari, Tripp King, and Danny Jones for stepping up and doing what needed to be done. Audiences were blessed and we were thrilled to learn that some even accepted Jesus as their Savior. Praise the Lord!

Rickey and I will be back on the road this weekend. We want to thank everyone for the love you have shown our family. We love y’all dearly. Please continue to pray for Rickey. We know that God will make this trial a blessing.

Hey Friends!  :)

Praying 2015 will be the best year ever for all of us!! Let’s all continue to look forward and not look behind. This year is a new beginning for a lot of people. I know in my personal walk with the Lord, more than ever I want to draw closer to Him. We (KPNR) have so many things to accomplish this year that I want God to show His Glory in everything we do! Please continue to pray for us this week as we start recording vocals for a new album. The songs are filled with hope and praise! Also my daughter, Kari, will be recording her first ever song as a bonus track on the new album. I’m a proud Mom!

On behalf of Susan, Jeff, and me….Happy New Year!!

Love & prayers, Karen
