Richard’s Story

Site created on September 5, 2019

We have started this page for our loving husband, fabulous father, dedicated coworker, and dear friend, Richard Martin. Rich recently found out that he has masses on his brain. He is currently in Ann Arbor, MI receiving treatment. We would like to thank everyone for the support, positive thoughts, and continued prayers.

Journal entry by Mary Anne Martin

A long overdue update -

Rich continues to have chemotherapy treatments at the University of Michigan. His doctors continue to be happy with how he has responded to treatments so far.

The Martin family has learned more about the brain and how it works then what we ever wanted to. Since it is the control center for everything we do it can affect many things we do throughout the day when it has been compromised in anyway. 

Now that Rich has had the radiation and been treated with the chemo therapy for a while he is thinking clearly and able to enjoy day to day activities. The treatments make him tired and his body ache but he remains strong. He continues to have a good sense of humor and find something positive in every day.  Those of us who know him well know that he would be this way as he walks this road.

Thank you for your continued support and all of your prayers.
