As most people are aware, Gary has been in treatment for
over two years for Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  The doctors that have been treating him had
advised that he would be a candidate for a stem cell transplant.  The past treatments have not completely eradicated
the cancer but brought him to the point that a stem cell transplant would be
more advisable than continuing chemotherapy treatments.

On Monday, October 17, 2016 he will enter St. Louis
University Hospital to begin the process of the transplant.  He will be hospitalized for several weeks,
and will be in isolation for at least two weeks.    Due to the season approaching us, unfortunately,
he cannot receive visitors.  He also
cannot receive outside items of any kind such as flowers, or fruit baskets,
etc., due to his immune system being virtually wiped out.

After at least two weeks, a determination will be made to see
if he is recovering well enough to start receiving visitors on a limited
basis.  I will keep everyone updated
through this website.

Please feel free to post pictures, funny jokes, well wishes,
on-line cards and, most of all prayers and lots of them. 


Gary and Gloria
