Thank you for visiting my CaringBridge, a site to provide you updates during my recovering. I have decided to include all of you in my recent fight against a horrible disease called Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma because I know and believe a strong support system is key along with your prayers. My surgery is scheduled for Monday, October 31 at OSU James Cancer Hospital. I will have a very long, 15-hour surgery called an internal hemi-pelvectomy, which is the amputation of the left pelvic bone with a chance of a leg removal. Recovery time is one full year.
