If you know Bob you know he is always on adventure and up for any challenge. He works hard and plays even harder. Bob is one of the healthiest people on the planet. He works out 3 times a week and eats only healthy food. Following a ski trip to Mammoth he had a stomache ache and felt an odd mass near his appendix so drove himself to the ER to get it checked out. On January 20, Bob had surgery to remove those masses in his abdomen that were at first diagnosed as Neuroendocrine Tumors, a rare and aggressive type of Cancer. We have since learned that it is Goblet cell carcinoid (GCC), an even more rare cancer which displays features of both a neuroendocrine tumor and a more aggressive form of cancer known as an adenocarcinoma. Bob has recovered wonderfully from his surgery and will begin chemo on February 20. We have been busy with daily doctors appointments, scans and research to identify the best path for beating this disease. Our friends and community are an absolute blessing to our family. We welcome your prayers and support. We are in it to win it and to beat cancer!
