Welcome to our CaringBridge website. Several of you have asked about my health status, so we have decided to use Caring Bridge, once again, to communicate my progress. As you may recall, we used Caring Bridge in '09 when I proceeded with the second stem cell transplant at M D Anderson. Well, here we go again. It's 2016 and I am going to have a donor stem cell transplant at M D Anderson in October. It's been about an 8 month process so far as doctors have helped me prepare for this and have selected this as a good direction to go in my ongoing battle with cancer. My family and I have appreciated all of your support and concern.
