A communication site
In month of 2016 Antonio Andrade was diagnosed with lung cancer. It was news that devastated our whole family. After many prayers, tests and doctors visits there was still more bad news to come. Antonio was not a candidate for chemotherapy or surgery. This means that Antonio's lung cancer had just been diagnosed as terminal to his life. Our only option was to try radiation therapy in hopes to slow the progression of his cancer. Thankfully, radiation was a success and helped to subside some of the symptoms Antonio was already experiencing. Still, there is no cure for Antonio's cancer and the day has already come where we have heard the dreaded news that his cancer has spread. It has spread within the lungs and then past the lungs and into his bones and liver. Followed with some water in the lungs. This is currently Antonio's diagnosis as of March 2017.
This communication page was created as a way for our family to connect with all of Antonio's loved ones and bring some ease to providing everyone with current updates on his wellbeing and the progression of his diagnosis as this time is very sensitive for our family.
We thank you all for your support, the tremendous amount of concern, prayers and well wishes for Antonio and our family.
