I am Julie, Cliff's wife. Cliff was diagnosed with neuro-endocrine tumors in the pancreas and liver in October of 2017. Neuro endocrine tumors are a slow moving type of cancer that probably started in his pancreas. Cliff is being taken care of by our general Dr. here in St. Johns and the U of M cancer center team. We have been through 4 rounds of chemo pills and injections to try and shut off the tumor cells. Recently we ran into issues with chemo side effects, possibly a flu bug and who knows what else that landed him in the hospital for the week. He is getting great care from the Sparrow Clinton Nurses, PCT, PT and Nutritional staff . He is gaining his strength and we hope to have him home by the weekend.
Cliff and I have been married for 14 wonderful years and have two great sons. Justin is at CMU and Zach is in the middle school.
