Dear Family and Friends,
We will be using this site to share information. Please click on the "Journal" tab for updates.
As you know, Annie has been winning her fight with cancer since 2004. Now, it seems cancer is winning. On Sunday, December 4, she was admitted to OHSU for two nights to address difficulties with her breathing. As you can imagine, her main focus was to return home to her boys. Although relieved to be home, her health has not improved. Sadly, all treatment options have been exhausted. Hospice services have begun. Annie's health is deteriorating quickly. She manages to smile through it all and selflessly continues to show concern for others' needs before her own.
We are striving to keep our routines as normal as possible, and we appreciate all of the assistance in doing so.
We will read all of your comments and well wishes to Annie. Thank you for the encouraging words, and the outpouring of support for our family.
Annie, Ron, Ethan (17), Eric (15), and Alex (13)
