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. Please check the "Ways to Help" and "Planner" tabs for ways to help and support Jon and Marilyn.
After complicated neck surgery in the fall of 2020, Jon was still experiencing health challenges several months later. In the spring of 2021, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer and Parkinson's Disease.
Jon has urothelial carcinoma which does not appear to have penetrated into the muscle. He has had surgeries to remove the tumor and will be undergoing a few localized chemotherapy treatments. This type of cancer has an excellent prognosis and we hope for a full recovery with limited complications.
Parkinson's Disease will be an ongoing health challenge. Please check our journal for updates. Thank you for your love and support. ❤️
