Notable actor Tom Alter is suffering from skin cancer and is being treated at a city hospital here, according to his son, Jamie Alter.
The 67-year-old actor has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma which is a type of skin cancer.
From his Wikipedia page: “Tom Alter is the son of American Christian missionaries of English and Scottishancestry and has lived for years in Mumbai and the Himalayan hill station of Landour. His grandparents migrated to India from Ohio, United States in November 1916, when they arrived in Madras (now Chennai) by ship. From there, they went to Lahore by train, where they settled. His father was born in Sialkot, now in Pakistan.”
No doubt, Tom will turn to his Christian upbringing for help at this time. We also ask that you send prayers for this legendary actor to recover from this dreadful disease.
“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
