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.

Most of you know that I was diagnosed in August with Colon Cancer.  I am very fortunate that is was discovered early.  It could have been another 3-5 years before it was discovered.  I went to the ER in June for lower right abdominal pain, was diagnosed with colitis and was referred to a specialist.  A colonoscopy was scheduled.  Turns out colitis was nothing but a simple inflammation.  However, polyps and a cancerous mass were discovered, totally unrelated to what brought me there in the first place.  I underwent surgery in September and the mass was successfully removed.  24 lymph nodes were also removed for testing.  1 of the 24 tested positive for cancer...and so begins the next part of this journey, chemo treatments.
