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. My cancer story started with unexplained leg pain in December 2016.  That pain became progressively worse. After my doctor sent me to physical therapy, pain spread to my back.  In late March I found a new doctor, who ordered an MRI.  By the first week of April I was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 lung cancer.  Three years later I'm still getting chemo every three weeks.  I'm also back to gardening, riding bicycles, etc.  Thank you for visiting.
