In May 2016, I received a diagnosis of a squamous cell carcinoma on my lower lip. By late summer, it became apparent that I would need surgery to remover the cancerous cells. That surgery took place in late August. Thanks to all who came out to the pre-surgery brunch. Your support continues to mean so much to me. 

The surgery was successful, but cancer is still present at the cellular level and will require a recommended 7-week course of follow up radiation treatments.  It was necessary that sufficient post surgical healing take place before radiation treatments could begin, but I have also just learned that my doctors require that I have considerable dental work completed  before I can begin this next phase of treatment. 

I appreciate all of the support I have received to date and have friends asking all the time how they can be of help during my ongoing recovery. Here are some ways to continue to help:
1) Friends have helped me establish this CaringBridge page and a meal support schedule via TakeThemA 
2) There is also a GoFundMe link below for friends who might be able to assist with the extensive dental care that is required. I need $7, 000+ worth of work done. All contributions - at any level - are gratefully received, but I would like to offer a pendant to all donors of $50 or more. 

Please click on the links below for "Ways to Help" to find out more about the GoFundMe and meal support options. 

With much love and appreciation,
