Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. 

On May 14, 2019, Mom went to the emergency room in Lake Havasu for shoulder pain and left arm weakness.  Concerned that she may have had a mini stroke, tests were run.  We were completely unprepared  to learn that she had advanced stage metastatic cancer in her lung, brain, bones and throughout her body.  It is difficult to comprehend how quickly the cancer has spread and how destructive it has been.  We transfer her to the University of Chicago and began treatment.    We will keep you update on her fight here.

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
