Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. I was diagnosed with lung cancer on April 21, 2016. I am fortunate to have great health care, wonderful physicians, the latest equipment and the support of family and friends across the world. I am on prayer lists in Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, and Jewish faiths and have a Shaman summoning healing powers for me! Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers - we will beat this together!
