On June 17 my neck felt a little sore and I could feel a lump on the left side.   I went to my chiropractor like I do on a regular basis.  He said I needed to see an MD.  I got in the van and called immediately hoping to get this thing taken care of quickly . Little did I know,  I scheduled the first of many doctors appointments this summer.  After an ultrasound, CT scans, biopsy/surgery on my neck, consults with oncologists in the twin cities and at Mayo in Rochester, it was determined that I have Diffused large cell B Non Hodgkin's  Lymphoma on July 22.  Then I needed to have routine tests done to prepare for Chemotherapy, which is the best way to fight this type of cancer.  Lynn and I decided to have my treatment and care at Mayo.  The first treatment will start August 13 and I will have another treatment in 3 weeks.  The doctors say that 90%+ this chemo will take care of the cancer.  The scans revealed that I have cancer cells in my neck and maybe a spot on my upper chest.  Therefore I am at Stage 1 or possibly 2.  Early on the soreness in my neck went away and I have been feeling just like my normal self.   So our family begins a new journey.  This is a race I would rather not run.  But God is good!  And he will be with us through it all.  Please pray for us!
