Welcome to our CaringBridge site. I've created it to keep friends and family updated. IT IS NOT MEANT TO RAISE MONEY SO PLEASE IGNORE ANY DONATE OR TRIBUTE BUTTONS I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. I am blessed to have a wealth of family, friends and colleagues and I have been gratified and overwhelmed by how much support you all have shown me. I dont need sympathy, just cheer me on as we collectively beat this thing ! I plan on using this site to do short updates every week or two as my treatment proceeds. I welcome feedback if you want to know more (or less!) about certain aspects of my journey.
