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 your support. On Aug. 22nd 2016 Debra was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer which spread to her lymph nodes and bones. In late Oct 2016 she was taken by ambulance to Sanford Hospital and learned cancer had eaten away her left hip. It was rebuilt but her severely swollen and numb leg has made it difficult to move about without assistance. She was recently hospitalized twice and each time about 2 liters of fluid was removed from her lungs. The great people (sincerely) at Sanford are unsure of the cause and we would like to go to Mayo Clinic for other possible options. We now have insurance but no funds for travel, lodging, missed work for me (no PTO left), food and other out of pocket expenses. Please pray for healing for my dear wife and for funding to go to Mayo. Her birthday is Sept 24th and our 48th anniversary is Sept 13th. Thank you.
