Juicy ministry

Forty members of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Creve Coeur, Mo., are helping restore their music director, Kevin Weichman, to health.

Forty members of Holy Cross Lutheran Weichman, 44, was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant type of brain tumor in 2009. Chemotherapy left him tired, discouraged and losing weight, said member Diana Schramm.

As part of an alternative therapy, he's on a strict regimen of organic fresh fruits and vegetables.

Led by choir member Elizabeth "Peachie" Prange (left) and Jane Ristau (right), the group known as Jehovah's Juicers prepares special foods for his diet — initially a fresh juice drink every hour and requiring 40 pounds of carrots weekly.
