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. I should mention that certain persons have used my diagnosis as an excuse to attack me; I won't tolerate that here. All love, support, encouragement - even curiosity about treatment regimens, or how I'm doing - welcomed. Any negative diatribes will be removed and the perpetrator blocked. I know that sounds harsh but I need to concentrate on trying to get well, and my emotional resources are needed for healing, not petty squabbling.
