Joe’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one.

My Story is the introduction to our CaringBridge site.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

Joe has recently been diagnosed with cancer.
Joe is now done with the all the ct scans, MRIs, bone scans, blood work, blah, blah, blah! So, now we know that the cancer is in one of his lungs, his liver, and his bones. We got good news late this afternoon - the cancer has NOT reached his spinal column. So, for now that means no radiation. Tomorrow they will start his chemo. Wednesday will be about a 3 hour drip, Thursday a 1 hour drip, and Friday a 1 hour drip. Then we can go home! We'll have to come back in 3 weeks to have the 3 day chemo gig repeated. Joe is feeling better now than he has for over a month. So we are grateful for that. Thank you to everyone for all your prayers. Joe and Cheryl
