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. Thank you for visiting. Later in life I have realized how important my chosen "family" is to me. Having a small and somewhat disfunctional family, I truly treasure all my friends who have become like family to me. Please text me or write a note on Caring Bridge. Know I appreciate you.
In July I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I am receiving treatment at Cancer Treatment Center of America in Phoenix AZ. The cancer is wrapped around a main artery and has advanced into my backbone. The doctors are not giving up on me & are helping to reduce pain & extend my time. That being said, I am trying to deal with the fact that I probably don't have as much time as I had hoped.
Every two weeks I go down for chemo & soon they will be starting radiation. Of course no one really plans for this and right now I'm trying to figure out how I will be able to handle all this.
