Peter’s Story

Site created on April 14, 2018

A CT scan on Dec. 29 showed a mass on Peter’s lung. A biopsy was done on Jan. 12. Twenty radiation treatments followed as well as a bronchoscopy to open airways and thorocentesis to drain off fluid.  None of the treatments helped very much, bringing us now to Hospice.  We welcome you to our CaringBridge website, our way of keeping family and friends updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
