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.
Nine years ago, John had his first tumor, hemangiopericytoma. It was large and affected his frontal lobes. Four years ago this month, he had seizures due to  scar tissue from that surgery. And on Monday, August 7,  we saw the neurologist for a routine medicine check and there were some indications that further tests were needed. The MRI on Monday confirmed that John now has 2 new tumors on his brain. We were referred to Omaha. And this is the beginning of  another journey.
