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.  

I have been diagnosed with Small Cell lung cancer.  Off and on this past summer I had pains on my front left side of my lower rib cage.  I dismissed it because it would go away.  In the fall I was diagnosed with pneumonia and had it treated with antibiotics.  It didn’t seem to want to go away and the pain was back and getting worse so I went back in for another check up.  I was then sent in for a CT scan and the results came back with multiple spots on my lungs but I would need a biopsy to know what it was. I had the biopsy on December 6 and on December 10th was told it was Small Cell lung cancer, most likely stage 3 but maybe stage 4. I will go in for a PET Scan December 18th and will know more within the week.  

I am deciding to not treat the cancer. I will live out the rest of my days enjoying life,  every day that is given to me.  Please respect my wishes to do so.  It is not up for debate.  I have lived a good life and I am confident that when God calls me home I will go to meet Jesus exactly when He has determined.  God has given me a wonderful support system of friends and family and I am forever grateful for that. 
Thank you for your prayers and support.
