Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

About four weeks ago we got the unwelcome confirmation diagnosis of cancer - mantle cell lymphoma to be exact. This came after a month of various tests that were looking for what was causing a significant elevation in my white cell count and an enlarged spleen.  We were referred to Emory Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta for consultation and to make a decision on what direction we would go on treatment. Decisions made, final tests run in preparation, and we are kicking off 2020 with the start of chemo on January 2.  The game plan is simple - fight like hell and whip this cancer's butt!

Cannot say enough about the support of my awesome wife Cathy, our boys Parker & Zach, and both of our families as we start this fight.  Our GMC Family has been incredible and we have been blessed by so many friends and supporters who are helping us get this all important "win!" The many prayers, notes, calls, etc. have been so supportive and comforting - thank you all for you kindness!

The fight starts January 2, and we will keep friends and family updated through this website as best we can, so please feel free to share with anyone who you think might be interested. Thanks again for the support we have received so far and for that which we will receive in the weeks and month ahead!
