Hello friends and family. We will be using this site to stay up to date on Rich's journey. As you can read in the journal section of this site, Rich was unexpectedly diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia on Friday, February 5th. What has occurred since then has been urgent and frightening as we learn about chemotherapy protocols, bone marrow transplants and all in isolation away from loved ones. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
