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. Our journey actually started back in February of 2019, when I discovered a small lump on the side of my neck. After a number of tests and visits with doctor, I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cancer of head & neck. We were told it was fairly common and treatable. After a few more tests, we were informed, by our ENT specialist in Corpus, that it was in a location that he was not comfortable in operating. We were referred to one of the top ENT Doctors located in Houston, TX., Doctor Ron Karni - Chief of Head & Neck Surgery for the UT Physicians group.
