My world changed when I was diagnosed with advanced Gallbladder Cancer five months ago. Since then, I have had 2 surgical procedures and 5 cycles of chemo. While I am dealing with some of the side effects of the chemo, I have had a great response from the chemo. 

Many of you have been asking how I am doing. I am feeling pretty good right now since I have been off chemo. I am preparing for a big surgery on November 18th  in Chicago. It is anticipated that I will spend several days in the hospital. I am hoping to be home for Thanksgiving.

Creating this site will help Mike and I to communicate easier with everyone and provide you with more up to date information. You can also send messages within the site if you would like. 

Mike and I really appreciate and would like to thank everyone for all of the prayers, well wishes, and positive thoughts. Keep it coming!
