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. I was recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue cancer (epitheliod angiosarcoma). It has spread to several locations in my body and Joe and I are working with the doctors to determine the best course of treatment. At this point it does not appear that surgery or radiation are good options so we are looking at possible chemotherapy. Currently, (March, 2018) I am feeling great and doing well. I have great doctors in Sonoma and Santa Rosa and we are consulting doctors at USF and Stanford as well as at Duke and I feel well taken care of. Joe and I are optimistic but trying to be realistic as well so we wanted to keep those we love in the loop.
