Hello family and friends, We are starting this site to keep all of Vince's loved ones informed during his journey after his recent cancer diagnosis.
A couple weeks ago, Vince was diagnosed with what the doctors suspect to be renal cell carcinoma that is affecting the right kidney. The cat scan shows that the mass is quite extensive and is invading other organs, as well as the vena cava artery.
Vince has had many consultations at the Cleveland Clinic, and the doctors have recommended that he undergo surgery to remove his right kidney. The surgery will be quite extensive and difficult. Please keep Vince and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
After the surgery is completed, Vince will more than likely have to get a series of chemotherapy treatments to treat the cancer that is affecting his other organs. This will be a long journey for Vince but as we all know, Vince is a strong man and can handle whatever life throws at him!
This site will be used to communicate to Vince's family and friends to keep everyone informed during his journey to lessen the burden on his family so they do not have to constantly be on the phone updating everyone with Vince's progress. This can be an extremely trying task on a family, so the more they can focus on Vince and getting him through this, the better.
Lisa Little (Vince's daughter) and Erin Riccardi (co-worker of Vince's) will be making updates on this site as frequently as the family would like.
Thank you all for the support and please continue to keep Vince and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
