Welcome and thank you for visiting to hear how Pat is doing. Caring Bridge is a fabulous tool to be able to communicate to all of Pat's family and friends. Please stop by often to receive updates. Pat's Story --- Back in early March, Pat was diagnosed with Jaw Cancer. Needless to say, this has been somewhat of a painful experience for Pat - if you can imagine a very big toothache and multiply it by 10. Pat did his typical good due diligence and traveled down to the Mayo Clinic to meet with a team of doctors to discuss a treatment plan. This treatment plan includes a 'large' surgery and radiation. Pat will be going through this journey for several months, but prognosis is very good.
