I started one of these pages just under a year ago when we first heard Billy had tumors in his lungs.  He didn't want me to, because he didn't want anyone to feel bad for him.   

Where to start....Billy had a kidney transplant 36 years ago, and another almost 9 years ago.  Because of this, and needing anti rejection medications, he developed cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma that started in his scalp and has traveled to his lymph nodes, lungs, pancreas, and liver.  We have been doing radiation and did try two rounds of chemotherapy to get on top of it, but it isn't working.  He has now started a new chemotherapy to try to shrink the tumors and give him more time.  We are not sure it will work.  

I had to tell my 10 year old today that I don't know if he'll get better.  While my heart is already breaking, it broke a bit more.  We also have a 7 year old and a 2 year old that I don't know how to explain it to.

I don't even know what to say, he is my best friend, and such an amazing person.  He is the best father my kids could ever have.  Please just pray he has as much time as possible.
