Welcome to Kurt's Caring Bridge web site. We are using this site to help keep friends and family informed of how Kurt is doing, and to collect well-wishes for Kurt as he moves through his ongoing treatment and recovery process. **** Kurt has a treatable form of lung cancer that was well-treated for the past 2 years, but has recently spread to his bones. He had a 2 - year reprieve because of an amazing new medication called "Afatinib". However, in December 2016, his disease progressed and he suffered multiple blood clots to his lungs, a stroke in the language network of his brain, and a mild heart attack. **** He is now proceeding to radiation, speech, occupational and physical therapy... and so his days will be busy! **** Kurt and his family and friends thank you for your love and support. We invite you to join us on Kurt's ongoing voyage towards tomorrow, and kindly invite you to share your message of hope and caring for Kurt and this virtual community. **** Thank you!
