Diagnosed with Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma on Aug. 25, 2020 after finding a large lump on the right side of his neck. His cancer team is at Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center. On his medical team are Dr. Michael Gibson Oncologist and the great James Netterville MD Oncology Surgeon. He reminds me of grandfatherly type that would be on his tractor one day, and in the OR the next. He is very down to earth. He has already done a tonsillectomy on Michael. He started chemotherapy on Nov.5th He has done well so far. He’s a strong one! Surgery to remove tumor and lymph nodes is February 2
This is his 2nd battle with cancer. After his 1st Colonoscopy, he was diagnosed with colon cancer. He had a 4cm tumor in his sigmoid area of his intestines. He did chemotherapy, and then surgery on March 1st 2016. Another great surgeon, Dr. Suri Michael said he’s always smiling. 3 months later Michael was in Tampa Florida playing in the ocean.
