To All Our Family and Friends. Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place as we fight Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). In January of 2006 I had a double mastectomy because of a diagnosis of invasive ductal and lobular breast cancer. The lymph nodes taken resulted in a diagnosis of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma grade 1 for which I took chemotherapy. About May of that year a PET scan showed me cancer free. God has blessed me with no symptoms until the last few years. During the last 6 months my health has declined and symptoms escalated. Lab reports have confirmed that I have Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) We appreciate your prayers, support and words of hope and encouragement. We love you all.
