In September Gary had a colonoscopy and was found to have colon cancer.  After further testing he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.  The cancer is in the colon, 2 lymph nodes, and 2 spots on the liver.  When we met with the oncologist, she told us that with aggressive chemo he might get 2 or 3 years longer, but the quality of life may not be very good.  Gary decided that he did not want to do chemo and possibly be pretty sick.  So he has been doing homeopathic things these past few months.  In early January he had more blood in his stools, so has decided to go to a cancer center in Tijuana for treatments.  We leave on Feb. 12 and plan to stay for a month.  Your prayers are appreciated.
