We ask for faith, grace and strength as we begin our unexpected journey with Jay's diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, determined on March 30, 2022. Jay faces a tough road ahead, and we ask you—our family, friends, and community—to accompany us. Though we know the way will be uncertain, we are immeasurably grateful that we have you in our corner to help bear the load.
We'll use this page to communicate updates about Jay's health and treatment, as well as requests for help as we have them. This Caring Bridge website will ask you to create a user profile to add comments or well wishes, which we would love to read! You can also click "Follow" in the top right-hand corner of the site to receive an email any time we post an update.
We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and encouragement you have given to Jay and to all of us already. Please know how much we appreciate your thoughts, prayers, kind gestures, coverage at work, stories that make us smile, and warm wishes. Now more than ever we have felt the truth of the words of St. Catherine of Sienna, "It is only through shadows that one comes to know the light."
With love, Jay, Lyn, Matt, Emily, Maria, Josh, Mitchell and Monica
