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.

Hello Friends and Family - 

As Michael and I embark on this new journey, we invite you to support us with loving, caring, thoughts, and prayers for both of us, our doctors Team, and my body. When I was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I reached out with intention, asking for Angels and support in the way that suits you best. I have truly felt the love and support pour into my/our life. Heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you. We feel blessed to be under the care of Dr. Tom Trezona and his Team. In a short time, it's been an amazing start. 

My good friend Carol Williams from Montana will be staying with me in the hospital for the first four days - she will be updating this site to keep you informed of my status during my stay so I can do what is best for my body: rest and heal. This will allow Michael to come and go to the hospital based on his schedule.  

With that, I respectfully ask for no phone calls to the hospital and no visitors for the first few days. This site will be updated, if and when visitors are welcomed. I need all of my energy put forth to healing and resting. Thank you for understanding. 

This site will help with communications so Michael doesn't have to make so many phone calls in order to keep people informed; while being with me in the hospital and caring for our animals at home. 

We are so grateful to have such a large support group surrounding us. 

Much love
Laurie & Michael
