Alec and Marianne and their family received some tough news. Alec has Micropapalary bladder tumor that is aggressive. As you may know, Marianne has suffered two disabling strokes and is unable to assist her husband as much as she would like to. He is scheduled to begin chemotherapy on November 3. Upon completion of chemotherapy sometime in January, He will have surgery to remove his bladder and will be in the hospital for seven to ten days. The good news is that the cancer was caught very early and the outcome is very hopeful. Also good news, Alec and Marianne are in good spirits and would enjoy a visit, email or text at anytime. We set up this site to show our love and support for them in the coming months.
