Sellers' voice started getting hoarse in August 2017 and we thought it was from a sinus infection.  As time went on and it worsened, he sought medical attention and was told he has Stage 4 Squamous Cell Cancer that began in his tonsil and has created a tumor in his neck.  It is considered Stage 4 because it is also in three lymph nodes.  Even though it is stage 4  and the treatment is painful and difficult, it is curable. That's the news we are holding onto, along with our faith that God has this in His hands.  We invite you to follow along on our journey as he beats this thing!

Treatment will consist of 7 weeks of radiation, 5 days a week with Chemo occurring every Monday as well.  The end of the 7 weeks will be the Friday before Christmas.  So while he will continue to feel the effects of radiation for about two weeks after that, at least he will be done with the daily trips to Emory that week.
