Welcome to Robert Benik's website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Here’s the latest:
Here's what we know: On Tuesday, December 17th, Robert went to the doctor after several weeks of experiencing low energy, unexplained weight loss, low appetite, and skin discoloration. Confirmed by an MRI and a CT scan, he was diagnosed with cancer of the liver.
On Friday, January 10th, oncology confirmed stage 4 liver cancer, originating from the bile ducts.
He is not in any pain and continues to have a great sense of humor. He's not on any diet restrictions at all and is working on eating more - bacon and eggs in the morning followed by high protein snacks throughout the day.
