Jon’s Story

Site created on August 16, 2019

Hi everyone! As you probably know I'm more than a little bit of an introvert, and I'm terrible at keeping in touch with even my best friends who I love. I'm sorry I can't update everyone personally with every bit of news or need for assistance, but hopefully the journal will keep you looped in!

If you're in Seattle and have the time and ability to assist, please consider joining the TeamLasser Slack (

PLEASE NOTE: The “Tribute” function on this site is a donation to CaringBridge, which runs this site. We do NOT have a GoFundMe set up for Jon at this time.

Journal entry by Jon Lasser

Got scans yesterday and saw Dr Santana (and his resident) today. The scans show continued and significant shrinkage of my tumors. I'm due back for a check-in in two months, and more scans two months after that.

In other news, I pulled something in my back around three and a half weeks ago. It's largely but not completely better. Hopefully it'll get all-the-way-better soon enough.

Also, I saw the dentist last week. One small cavity and a cracked filling to repair, which will happen next week.

Beyond all that, still working from and mostly hanging out at home. My walking streak broke at 110 (near-) consecutive days around when I hurt my back. I'm on track again, but plan to take more advantage of the "rest days" feature of my pedometer. (Basically, I can skip a day if I hit my goal for six consecutive days first. My 110 day streak included only two rest days.)

Laura and the kids are fine so far despite a camp-free summer, and I'm looking forward to Hannah's birthday next week. She wants sushi.
