Welcome Family and friends

Welcome family and friends,

We will be using this platform to keep everyone updated on what's going on with Billy.

 In February, after months of difficulty swallowing, he was diagnosed with stage 3 Adenocarcinoma of the esophageal junction ( cancer in his esophagus at the stomach).  He has completed 6 rounds of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation and still somehow managed to come out with his hair! It’s a bit thinner but still there.

 The next step is the removal of the tumor and reconstructive surgery to replace and repair his esophagus. In technical terms, the Ivor Lewis Oesophagectomy.

Our family would greatly appreciate your prayers and support as we start this next phase of treatment on Friday, August 10th.  We will keep you updated when we can.
Thank you to all who have prayed and supported us through this challenging time thus far. 
We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and prayers.

    A hard journey indeed. Medical advances are so great these days in treating cancer. Praying for expert doctors to bring you back to full health. Our God is watching over you, and your Christian friends are petitioning HIM on your behalf. "...HE will never leave you, or forsake you." God Bless you....keep the faith.

    Bill - you have so many friends and family praying for you - and legions of angels surrounding you and protecting you! I'll be praying for you tomorrow during your surgery! Think happy thoughts right before your anesthesia so you'll be in your happy place and know that you are in good hands! God will be guiding your doctors, surgeons and caregivers. We LOVE you Bill! You got this buddy!
