In early August, Chad was diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma. After numerous tests and scans they found he also had cancer in the lower lobe of his right lung. We were told best case scenario would be if it was an entirely different cancer. After a lung biopsy and bronchoscopy it was confirmed it is an entirely separate cancer! Adenocarcinoma of the lung. They biopsied some lymph nodes and they were clear of cancer! The lung cancer is being treated 1st being there was no sign of metastasis.
After recovering from this surgery for 2-3 weeks Chad will then have surgery to remove the tumor from the floor of his mouth. They will also do reconstructive surgery that day. Chad has a very long road ahead of him but we believe with the love, support and prayers from everyone he can beat this!! He's got a heck of a team fighting right along beside him!!
