We started this Caring Bridge site to keep family and friends updated on Dave's health situation. Dave was experiencing pain for over a year but it was attributed to a fractured tailbone. On September 19, 2019 he was diagnosed with rectal cancer and on October 3 we found out it was Stage 4. He began chemo on October 10. Also in this time period he was rear-ended in a car accident, where our car was totaled but Dave walked away with a strained ligament in his thumb. The events of the last 6 weeks show us that God is in complete control of our lives. We ask you to join us in prayer for healing, Lord willing, strength for the journey, and that Dave and I can stay focused and glorify God through this experience.
