News

I have spent a great deal of time talking about my dad and his battle with cancer. On December first my dad went to the doctor and they found his cancer which was in his pancreas has actually moved to his liver. In a short period of time the cancer has taken over about 30% of his liver. The doctor has not given us much hope, but did put my dad back on chemo to slow the progress of the cancer.

As you can guess I am not feeling very upbeat. I am trying to focus on how at this time last year we thought we would not even have my dad with us now. But for my family this news has been devastating. I am trying to move forward, but I don't have to tell you it is hard.

Jamie--I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I'm sending a virtual hug, but know that I'm here for the real thing if you ever need it.
