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. On March 5th Fred was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma and on the same day his wife JoAnne had fallen and broke her hip we believe due to a stroke? Her records indicate she has had several mini strokes over the past few years which no one knew about. Fred has had a biopsy done and was in the hospital for about a week. He is currently staying with our Half-brother in Clive, Iowa. If anyone cares to send him a card of encouragement I know he would be greatly appreciative. The address is 1941 NW 80th Ct, Clive, Ia. 50327. He has beeen taking radiation along with chemo pills for 2 weeks now and this week will be his 3rd, he is tolerated it well although he is slowing down and getting tired more easily. Please keep him and Jo Anne both in your thought and prayers
