Welcome to my CaringBridge website.  For those of you that don't know the story, in Sept 2019, I was diagnosed with throat cancer.  I was treated with 7 rounds of chemotherapy and 35 rounds of radiation.  This ended on Dec 31, 2019.  I spent most of 2020 regaining my health.  Starting in Feb 2021, I sought treatment for debilitating back pain.  April 5th I was finally diagnosed with a fractured vertebrae caused by a tumor on L4.  So far the treatment has included 2 back surgeries, 7 straight weeks in the hospital and rehab, radiation, and my first round of immunotherapy.  This is why I am here and asking for your help.
