My Story

Hi Everyone,

I have developed colorectal cancer which was discovered pursuant of a colonoscopy in early April 2010.  I've undergone chemo/radiation treatments throughout May and the first half of June and am expecting to undergo surgery to remove the tumor in August.

I've received a lot of support from friends and family and in order to keep all of you current on developments, I've started this site to provide the latest developments and information.

Thank you all for your concern, prayers and support.
