Welcome to our CaringBridge website.  On Friday, July 28, 2017, I was diagnosed with  Stage IV colorectal/cervical cancer.  Over the past seven months, I have had four surgeries (three related to the cancer, one to the 2012 auto accident),  five weeks of chemotherapy, and 31 radiation treatments, all at Memorial.  I also had internal radiation (brachytherapy) at the University of Chicago.  As of February 22, 2018, I am in remission.  Because of the advanced cancer, I am at high risk for recurrence, in particular for the next two years.  At the end of February,  we copied our facebook page ( to a new CaringBridge site below, for those friends who are not on Facebook.  Thank you for following our story.   Kellie, Stephen, and Alexandra
