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.

The journey started in 2014 when John was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).  Challenged with trying to control the pain and keeping active he chose to retire early.  In December 2016, he was hospitalized with acute liver failure.  This led to a trip to Mayo to try and get on the liver transplant list.  The only "cure" for PSC.  Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with stage 4 cholangiocarcinoma, liver cancer in the bile ducts.

We appreciate you all so very much!  Thank you always for your thoughts and prayers for us on this journey in life!

With love, 
John, Jenny, Josh, Jess and Jenna
