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.

I have been diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer, and it has metastasized throughout my system.  I have chosen not to undergo any traditional treatment (surgery, chemotherapy or radiation) and have entered into hospice care.  I am able to stay in my apartment  with occasional help from Debra, Scott and the hospice team.  My pain is being managed.   I do get very tired and therefore, it's difficult for me to speak on the phone or answer a text.  I prefer e-mail, a letter or a message on this Caring Bridge website.  

I know you all want to reach out to me and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. 

Debra will be updating this site regularly as things change or progress.  She will also check it everyday and make sure I get your messages.
