Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place as we begin this next phase of my treatment. On September 12th my sister, Stephanie, and I will be heading to Portland where she will see doctors who will determine if she is physically able to undergo the procedures necessary to donate her stem cells to me. We appreciate your prayers and words of hope and encouragement, and will use this site to keep you up-to-date on our progress. Thank you for visiting.
