[This Caring Bridge site is a landing page for all of the family and friends who have expressed an interest in supporting Robert McAninch and his family as his cancer progresses. We will provide prayer updates, meal support options and other news here. The family also appreciates direct contact, although they will not always be able to respond in a timely manner. Our goal is to make all the well wishes noted here into a lasting reminder of a life well-lived and remembered. A physical copy will be created for Shari, Isaac and Rachel. ]
Robert experienced issues related to health over the past year, but thought much of it was due to food intolerance. After the Christmas holiday, he caught the flu which seemed to exacerbate his health condition. On February 14 cancer was found in the colon, but we still hoped it was contained in that location. Robert had a CT scan on February 18th and the next day, we were notified that the cancer had already metastasized to his liver and lungs. We met with his oncologist and after evaluating his options, we felt the chemo treatments would provide little gain, so Robert decided not to do them.
Hospice is already involved and has been an incredible blessing to us. Only God knows how many weeks or months Robert has, but your support through this journey means the world to us. Thank you for caring. - Shari.
