John was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in early October 2016. His treatment will consist of chemotherapy and surgery. His first chemotherapy treatment at the University of Minnesota Cancer Treatment Center will be on October 25th. Surgery is expected in January 2017 and after a period of recuperation, he will resume his treatment regimen with another round of chemotherapy. If all goes according to plan he should be finished all treatment in JuLY 2017. The best news is this cancer is treatable and a complete cure is anticipated. John has a big mountain to climb and he is up to the task. With the support of loving family, friends and relatives, both near and far, and through the grace of our loving God, the journey begins. Prayers and well wishes are appreciated. We promise to keep you posted throughout this journey.
