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. First, I want to assure everyone that this site is not a request for money. It is merely a place to inform family and friends of John's progress. Some of you may know but most of you do not know that John was recently diagnosed with a glioblastoma, a brain tumor, impossible to irradicate but treatable in a few ways. We are quickly exploring radiation and chemo vs. surgery. He is being treated by a team of neuro specialists at the University of Virginia. His first sign of a problem was losing his peripheral vision on his left side. One test led to another resulting in turning our world upside down. We are taking one day at a time and will live each day God gives us to the fullest.
