Terry’s Story

Site created on December 15, 2019

In late November 2019, Terry was diagnosed with Stage 4 Stomach Cancer.   The doctors staged it at 4 because it started in the stomach and metastasized to his bones.   Terry started chemotherapy immediately.  The chemotherapy won't cure the cancer, but it should stop the cancer from spreading.  We would appreciate your prayers and comments on this site as we will be sharing them with Terry.
