Bob has a type of Cancer called Multiple Myeloma. He was diagnosed with it 3 months after he retired. He took chemo after being diagnosed and was in remission for 9 1/2 years, which doesn't happen that often. We believe God had a hand in his strength and remission the last 9 1/2 years. Bob's cancer returned this last year. He did chemo from January till May of this year, but now he needs to have a Bone Marrow Transplant. His doctors believe he will likely have a good outcome from the Bone Marrow Transplant. The Bone Marrow transplant will be approximately 2 months of treatment. He will begin treatment on September 29th and will be receiving treatment through November. During this time he will be very limited to being around others and being able to get out like he normally does. The doctors have strongly encouraged him to have very limited to no direct contact with others outside of those staying with him until January. This is because he will be very susceptible to any illness that he comes in contact with due to his weakened immune system from the bone marrow transplant.
