Hello friends and family, This site was started to keep you all informed about Joe’s status. A few weeks ago, Joe was diagnosed with stage 4 Metastatic Lung Cancer. It was a shock to us all considering that Joe had no signs of ill health except for a persistant cough 2 months ago, that we thought was pneumonia. After many tests and emergency stays in the hospital, we were given the sad news. The oncologist never found the origin of the cancer but we are quite certain that it is the result of his exposure to agent orange in Vietnam. So here we are back home now getting hospice services and working with alternative treatments. And this is where you come in dear friends and family, keeping connected is part of the healing process so share the love!
