Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Been battling a kind of leaukemia for the last 7 years. It is unfortunately not curable by standard chemotherapy. The drugs i have been taking to keep it from advancing have started to lose their effectiveness. Going to Seattle for a couple months to participate in a clinical trial for a new cancer treatment that will hopefully lead to a cure for my form of leukemia. Hopefully I can contribute a small amount to the research so the next person doesn't have to deal with this. I have no doubt that it won't be too many years before no one dies from this disease.
