It has been a long journey for Dave, my husband.  After being diagnosed for prostrate cancer over two years ago, we found out that he also had  stage 4 lymphoma.  A procedure was done  to eradicate the prostrate cancer and in February of this year he started 6 rounds of intense chemo, which ended in May. After many more tests we were told that the lymphoma had transcended and it was now in his bones etc.
The decision was tough but the best option for Dave was to do stem cell transplant. His sister June Randall volunteered to be a match, and by the grace of God , she was. Otherwise we would have had to gone to a donor list. We are so grateful .

Dave has been in the hospital for about a week now, recieving more Chemo .
He will be in the hospital for 4-6 weeks.  STem cell comes next.

We appreciate all the love and support from family and friends . Please keep Dave in your thoughts and prayers as he and I will need that support to,get through this next phase.  I will continue to update the journal on this site , to keep you all informed .

A Gofundme account has been set up to help defray extreme medical costs etc. that are not covered , even with Dave's good insurance. If you can any form of donation would,be extremely appreciated. You can go to the link on this page , , my personal fundraising ...visit,my gofundme site.

Thank you in advance for all your support and kindness.
