Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I (Emily) have been trying to keep people updated by Facebook, email, calls and texts but it is challenging. So, I will begin using his site to keep everyone up-to-date on our favorite Brit (no offense to our British family and friends)!
Andrew really is the best. He's the most fun, lovable, and upbeat man that we know. He's full of jokes and can make anyone feel like a best friend. He's full of love, and touches the lives of everyone he comes into contact with. I love him more than words can say.
Andrew and I were thrown for a loop this past June when he was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer as an otherwise healthy 38 year old. We immediately got him into the best care program available, at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. He's just finished (as of August 25, 2016) his fifth round of chemo, and he's been taking it in strides, with remarkable improvement in his health and miraculous lowering of his tumor markers (CEA).
We are surrounded by family and friends, both in Seattle and Colorado. Andrew's family is making trips over from Britain to be with him and help, and there are many texts, phone calls, face time and skype sessions with some of his favorite people across the pond.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement and the many prayers that are lifting both Andrew and I up! Thank you for visiting.
