We all know Ron best with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He'll laugh at his own jokes (which I, personally, join in because his laugh is contagious and sometimes he's funny too). If you get the privilege to witness the famous dance move "swivel hips," you know he's having a great time. Most of you already know, Ron has recently been diagnosed with Squamous Carcinoma Stage 3. He has undergone surgery to remove a lymph node on his neck and his left tonsil. Of course the tumor remains. Doctors are confident they will be able to cure the cancer, but it will not be easy. The treatment plan is radiation everyday for 6-7weeks and chemo therapy on top of that. I (Amanda) will keep everyone updated on the progress of Ron's treatment and how he is feeling. Cancer is an overwhelming experience, to say the least, and can take over ones life in an instant. I want to take that burden away from my mom and Ron. We are a strong family and know God is good. So "Giddy up!" Ron will be kicking cancer's ass!
