My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. Jim Young is currently in the hospital. He has not been feeling well for a while and was just diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had emergency surgery on June 5th and is still sedated and in the ICU. We are currently waiting to hear the results of the biopsy. I know this is a shock to everyone and totally unexpected. I wanted to get this site up as soon as possible with the information I have so Jim's friends are aware of his condition, and we can keep you updated. We will read Jim the notes that you send on CaringBridge. Sorry to share this sad news.
