Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I will be using it to keep my family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. I plan on providing journal entries and updates on my progress over the days and weeks ahead.
While recently hospitalized from March 18, 2021 to March 30, 2021, with complications of eating solid foods and trouble breathing, I was officially diagnosed with Throat and Neck Cancer (Stage 3).
I am under the care of a great group of medical professionals and surrounded by my family and friends in the Chesterfield, VA area. On Tuesday, April 13th I started my road to recovery. I received my first of six weekly chemo infusions (Bon Secours Cancer Institute at St. Francis - Dr. Radhika Thorn). In addition, I began receiving my daily radiation treatments that will continue for 7-weeks for a total of 35 treatments (Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston Willis - Dr. David Randolph II).
