Welcome to our CaringBridge website., authored by the Gammelseter and Sutherland families. 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.
Delores is a wife to Ralph, Mom to Meladee and Allison, grandma to Jayda, Jackson, Andy and Maggie, and MIL to Chris and Ryan. She is currently battling endometrial (uterine) cancer. She had a hysterectomy in April 2016, and then 4 months of chemotherapy (one per week for 4 months!). Unfortunately the cancer is back , is Stage 4, and has spread to her colon.
Update: she is being moved to hospice and palliative care as of Jan 31st/17.
Ralph is also battling Lymphoma, has valve disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and had a knee operation this year related to gout and cellulitis. He is still recovering so his mobility is limited.
We will be updating the journal on here with ways to help our mom and dad. Please check for those regularly!
