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.  
Hello all, I created this site to keep everyone updated. For those whom are not aware my daddy (Howard) was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer a few years ago. Recently they identified that the cancer has spread to his right femur bone. His urologist suggested a treatment called Provenge. The treatment is very costly however we recently found out that his insurance will cover it 100%. Provenge is administered once every two weeks for a 3 total of three treatments. His 1st round will begin on Friday 12/2/16 he will go to the Red Cross in Charlotte and have his white blood cells drawn (3-4 hours) and the blood will be sent to Atlanta to be pumped with immune cells then on Monday they will infuse his blood back into him via an IV (1 hour). Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts. I will be updating you all through this website. Thank you for visiting.
