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.

Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer on March 15, 2022. He has cancer in his lung, esophagus and now possibly on his ribs. This was a shock to all of us. Dad has been a walker and in shape. 

His cancer walk started with a UT that turned into in 2019 and then pneumonia early 2020. He spent time in the hospital while they drained liquid from his chest cavity. His left lung did not return to full capacity. 

The 16th, we found out his left lung was not functioning at all and cancer was found. Matt and his family came home to visit. I went home. Krista and family made it out. Dad was taken to the hospital last night by ambulance due to not breathing well. Blood pressure was high and heart was stressed. He was moved to Williamsport hospital this morning and is in the ICU there. We know he will be in ICU for at least three days. 

I will write more later. Feel free to send Dad and Mom messages to show them support.

We are praying and asking for you to pray as Dad and the rest of us continue this journey. Thank you!
