Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. For those of you new to the story, it started some time around the end of March with shortness of breath with minimal effort and general fatigue. After days/weeks of appointments and searching I passed out at home. This led to a visit to the ED where they discovered a cue ball sized tumor in my heart. Open heart surgery, a pacemaker, and finally a cancer diagnosis. I'm now being treated for an intimal sarcoma at MD Anderson in Houston.
