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 (

Newest Update

Journal entry by Jon Lasser

CT scans today. Everything is stable, which my doctor says is a good sign that what's showing up on the scan is scar tissue, rather than live cancer. Good news!

I feel fine, mostly. Being tired probably has something to do with kids & day job & cooking & writing & hobbies & exercise. I'm keeping up on physical therapy. Inching back out into the world as COVID permits. (In fact, Laura and I are going to see Wilco in concert tonight, indoors, all masked up at a venue that requires vaccine or recent test results. Still nervous about it, but it seems like a very modest risk.)

My next appointment is four months out. So it's likely (hopefully!) going to be a while before the next update.
