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. Jack is battling squamous cell carcinoma. It began a couple of years ago as a growth in his mouth under his tongue. Surgery resolved it at that time, but in 2016 it was back. Thanksgiving 2016 he had further surgery to remove a cancerous growth from his jaw. In 2017 tumors developed in his face and neck, so the fight continues. Jack begins chemotherapy treatment on Tuesday, May 2 (the day before his 82nd birthday). Please keep Jack in your prayers during this difficult time. Thank you!
