On February 14th we learned that our Dad has stage 4 high grade neuroendocrine cancer. We don't know where it originated from and we have heard only about 50 people a year get this type of cancer. It's very rare and really bad. The doctor thinks they found it early but that even after just two months it has spread to his liver, lungs, lymph nodes, eroded his pelvic bone and now it is approaching his spine. He is receiving radiation, chemotherapy and immunotherapy. This is palliative treatment and the doctors estimate he could live 12 months. It's really hard to type that. But who knows?!?
He is a believer that anything can happen, that he has been healed since his buddies prayed over him and that he is not ready to go. He is a scrappy fighter. His approach is "hit it from every angle," medically and spiritually. After our recent ER visit, he purchased Georgia Tech football tickets from his hospital bed and has been collecting payment from his friends
