Our Dear Friend, Scotty has a health challenge and we're using Caring Bridge to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Here are the deets: Scotty has been diagnosed with throat cancer. Surgery is not an option because the cancer is located close to the flap that moves to allows him to eat, drink, and speak. Instead he will be undergoing 9 weeks of daily radiation with several rounds of chemotherapy.
Scotty will be taking a leave from work to complete his treatment that will take place in Seattle the end of September or the beginning of October. Scotty will drive daily to Seattle for treatment and if the daily drive gets too much for him, he will stay in Seattle to complete his treatment.
Throat cancer is curable and doable. This is a treatment that works. He is also welcomes suggestions and your love and care.
