I received this from Dr. Hancock:
Kira (Hancock) Ingham, daughter of Omer and Judy Hancock, will have surgery on Monday, January 7, 2013, in Tucson, Arizona. We appreciate you and others (HSU, churches, etc.) praying for Kira’s surgery to have good results, both in the immediate future and the long term.
The surgery is to remove a meningioma tumor. This type of tumor involves the protective linings (meninges) of the brain and the spinal cord. Kira’s tumor is in the area of the head. Typically this type of tumor is benign and non-cancerous. However, we will not know the full extent of the tumor and follow-up treatments until the surgery is done.
Thank you for your interest and prayers. – Omer Hancock
