Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, offers of help and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you!

On August 28th  I learned I have Throat Cancer and that it has spread to the lymph glands in my neck and tongue. It's stage 3. I'm getting ready to undergo chemotherapy and radiation for the next 9 weeks, starting the 18th of September. It's going to be the toughest thing I've ever done. Doctor's have warned me that I'm going to lose my voice during the treatment and that I will be losing the ability to swallow food and need to be on a stomach tube to feed myself.  I need your help. Peter and I do not have a family support system in this area. We have neighbors and friends and we hope you can lend us a hand. As a cinematographer, Peter's work is always in flux.  He is gone when he has work and during my treatment is the busiest time of the year for him. We have two small children, Merrick and CarolAnwen. I'm the mothership and take care of the family but I could use some help right now.
