Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We plan to use this site as a central location to keep our family and friends updated about Paul's journey. We appreciate your support, prayers, and words of hope and encouragement.
In December, Paul was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called amyloidosis. According to Mayo Clinic:
"Amyloidosis (am-uh-loi-DO-sis) is a rare disease that occurs when a substance called amyloid builds up in your organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein that is usually produced in your bone marrow and can be deposited in any tissue or organ. Amyloidosis can affect different organs in different people, and there are different types of amyloid. Amyloidosis frequently affects the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system and digestive tract. Severe amyloidosis can lead to life-threatening organ failure. There's no cure for amyloidosis. But treatments can help you manage your symptoms and limit the production of amyloid protein."
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."." Romans 8:28. We fully entrust Paul to Jesus and have faith in His healing hands. We will do our best to keep this page updated so you can know how specifically to pray for Paul and our family.
