On Friday January 22, 2016 Butch was diagnosed with a form of Oralpharyngeal Cancer that is in operable. Over the past two weeks we have been at the doctor’s everyday with the exception of Thursday of this week. After some tests and a biopsy as well as a 2nd opinion at Mass Eye & Ear/Mass General Hospital, and with the help of those same doctors, Butch has decided to start treatment at UMASS Hospital in Worcester. There are a few medical things that need to be taken care of in advance but Butch will soon be starting a regiment of Radiation 5 days a week for 7-9 weeks with consecutive Chemo Therapy each week following some those appointments.
