Major Announcement regarding HCM and its founder

[Notice: For updates on Jeremy’s health you can follow his personal Facebook page.]

Hey everyone, it’s Jeremy the founder of the Head Covering Movement. I have some major life changing news that I’d like to share with you all today.

Since the night of June 2nd I have been having some serious health complications that included strong abdomen pain, back pain, and breathing problems. After numerous tests with specialists they have found the issues.

My breathing issues are because I have many large blood clots in my lungs which if they weren’t dealt with soon would have been fatal. It’s putting a lot of stress on my heart so that’s where doctors are focusing their time and effort on now trying to stabilize my heart and breathing before they move on to the next issue.

The lower body pain I’ve been experiencing is confirmed to be cancer. Though the cancer started in my lower body it has been moving upwards and I have a grapefruit sized tumor in my stomach which is wrecking havoc on my body as it’s wrapped around blood vessels and pushing organs around. It is also what’s been causing the blood clotting in my lungs. Both surgery and chemotherapy will be employed to deal with the cancer in various places.

So much has happened so soon. Just as early as a week ago–standing, walking, and turning were all movements I did without thinking but now are very difficult and can sometimes only be done with assistance or pain medication. I’m not able to help my wife with even the simplest of things and can expect to be mostly bed-ridden for the foreseeable future.

Even though I received a lot of bad news quickly, I am in good spirits. I am not scared or worried. My theology is keeping me grounded through this all. Particularly the Bible’s teaching on God’s sovereignty (Daniel 4:35) and the fact that he promises to work all things (including cancer) together for my good (Romans 8:28). Knowing I have an all-powerful God who is in complete control of this situation and is weaving this chain of events for my ultimate good is comforting. And knowing that even if I don’t recover from this and die early, I know that because my faith is placed in Jesus, I will spend eternity together with Him. The doctor when he broke the news to me said “I wish everyone could respond as well as you’re responding”, I told Him that the reason I can respond well is because “I’m in a right relationship with God.” It really is the only reason.

Your prayers for myself and my family would be greatly appreciated during the season. If anyone would like to help us out in a tangible way as we walk through this process, you can donate through Paypal or if you use a Canadian bank, through email money transfer (same e-mail for both: [email protected] ). For those who prefer less tech ways of giving, my mailing address is: Jeremy Gardiner    1123 49A Street NW     Edmonton, Alberta, Canada    T6L 4C5

100% of the money will be used to help cover the extra costs of things like hospital parking and medication as well as practical things which will lessen the load of my wife like take-out meals for my kids on days when she is too exhausted too cook.

————————————–

What does this mean for the Head Covering Movement? It means at least for the foreseeable future I will be unavailable to create or curate new content for the site. I don’t think it would be helpful to speculate long term right now. I likely will be able to provide an update toward the end of the year on my health and what will happen with HCM moving forward. Our site will remain online as a resource hub and my prayer is that it will continue to remain a blessing to those who find our site after researching this topic.

5 WAYS YOU CAN HELP

If you consider yourself a part of this movement, here are a few ways you can help me get the word out about this teaching.

  1. Get a copy for you and others in your circle of influence.
    Consider giving copies as Christmas gifts to your theologically minded friends and family. Put a copy in your church or local library.
  2. Share the book release.
    Can you share the news that the book is now available on your social media accounts and/or your blog? You can direct your followers to christianheadcovering.com. Feel free to use our announcement images which can be found on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram. Use the hashtag #headcoveringbook so we can re-share some of your posts.
  3. Add to Goodreads & leave review.
    If you use Goodreads please add the book to your “to read” or “currently reading” lists. Please leave a review there when you’ve finished the book.
  4. Leave an Amazon review.
    Amazon reviews are VERY important and they influence people in their purchase decisions. If you could leave a review there when you’ve finished the book that would be a huge blessing.
  5. Bring out Jeremy to speak
    Consider bringing Jeremy to speak at your church or event on the topic of head covering. If you’re not a pastor or event planner, you can still let your church leadership and relevant conference hosts know that Jeremy is available and you’d like to hear teaching on this subject. Jeremy speaks free of charge.

A sincere thank you to everyone who has helped in promoting this book and teaching.
