Tim Keller Posts Latest Cancer Update on Twitter After 14 Rounds of Chemo: “What the Future Holds, I Do Not Know”

Tim Kelller

‘Counterfeit Gods’ author and world-renowned theologian Tim Keller shared another encouraging update on Friday regarding his pancreatic cancer battle he began treatment for in May 2020.

Keller, who said recently in an interview that his greatest fear isn’t death but regressing spiritually, posted on Twitter giving honor to God for those faithfully praying for him.

He said that he has only experienced ‘mild side effects’ from the the fourteen rounds of chemotherapy that resulted in some neuropathy in his hands and feet. As he continues a less aggressive chemotherapy, Keller reports his latest scans show “significant decrease in size and number of tumors.”

“What the future holds I do not know,” the retired pastor said, “but we will continue to trust His plan and allow Him to shepherd us along his chosen path.”

By giving you an update, I want to honor God and the many who have so faithfully prayed for me during my treatment for pancreatic cancer that began last May, 2020. I was on chemotherapy for 14 rounds, and have had relatively mild side effects, although the neuropathy in my hands and feet increased over time. I’m hoping that will start to improve now that I have been downshifted to a less aggressive (and physically damaging) chemotherapy.

Since May I have had three CT scans—in August, November and last Monday, February 8. The first two scans each showed a significant decrease in size and number of tumors. The February scan also showed that in an area that had previously had numerous nodules there are now none visible.

This is excellent news, so we are rejoicing that God has worked through your prayers and chemotherapy to accomplish so much. What the future holds I do not know, but we will continue to trust His plan and allow Him to shepherd us along his chosen path.”
