George’s Story

Site created on March 19, 2018

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 during George's challenge with cancer of the nasal passage and tonsils. I will update the site as we know more. Thank you for visiting. 

Newest Update

Journal entry by Patti Holmgren

Hello. As of Wednesday, we have a new update! George's cancer is gone!!!! There is no sign of carcinoma in his head, neck or torso. Needless to say, we are SO thankful for his wonderful medical care -- primarily at Tacoma General Hospital (which is connected to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance). We are also SO grateful for all of your good thoughts, prayers, care and showing of support. THANK  YOU. 

Now. On to the next journey. Surgery for his giant chest hernia that occurred as a result of his open heart surgery two years ago. That surgery is scheduled for Oct. 30 at the UW Medical Center. All is expected to go well, with 4-8 weeks of recovery. After that, watch our dust!

Thank you again, loved ones, for your support. Patti and George
