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.

Collin has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He underwent surgery on October 29th to remove the tumor. This all happened very fast; from the time he told his pediatrician to the time he saw the pediatric urologist at UVA and underwent surgery was only 2 weeks.  The oncologist called on November 8th to tell us that the pathology showed a "mixed germ cell" cancer which is curable with chemotherapy.

Collin, as usual, has a positive outlook on life and this challenge. His sense of humor hasn't wavered nor has his faith.

We will update journal entries as Collin goes through his treatment and welcome comments of support for Collin.
