Welcome to our Caring Bridge site.  We've created it to keep friends and family updated.  In 2009 Bob beat a very rare aggressive APL Leukemia! He has been in remission for just over 6 years! In 2012 Bob beat Skin Cancer, Basil Cell Carcinoma on his head, removed with Mohs Surgery, and chalked it up to another win! On Tuesday March 15th he noticed a swollen lymph node in his neck. After a sonogram, CAT scan, blood work and finally a biopsy, Bob was diagnosed with another Cancer. Over the next couple of weeks we will have a few more tests completed to narrow down the source of the cancer and for the doctors to create a treatment plan. What we do know is this: we caught it early and it is very curable!  However over the next 3-4 months, Bob will have a bit of a fight with both Chemo and Radiation treatments.  We are so very lucky to have such an amazing support group of family and friends!  We will be leaning on you!  Thank you!! Coach Bob will Win AGAIN!
