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.

A few days before Thanksgiving, Brian was diagnosed with Tonsil cancer. The tonsil cancer has formed a tumor on the side of his neck and spread to part of his throat pallet. This will require a dual surgery to remove both the tumor and the infected part of his throat and tonsil. The prognosis is good and we are lucky to have the top oncology team at Penn to assist us through this process.

Due to the location of the cancer, Brian will require a feeding tube and tracheostomy tubes for a few weeks. Talking will be limited but smiles and mobility are encouraged :)

Thank you again for everyone’s support and prayers!

Love and good health to all.
