Many jingles coming from GA. One of the teachers at our school was diagnosed with this several years ago. With treatment-meaning several rounds of chemo, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant, she is still cancer free, 12+ years later. It can be treated-successfully, hopefully her dad's will be too.
Jingling and praying! My (much older) Brother was diagnosed with that in 1985 and has survived and thrived. I think he had chemo, and due to a very ahead of the times Doctor, excellent nutritional support too. He is still around, and in great health at the advanced age of 77, to which he attributes following a mediterranean diet and taking lots of vitamins. Medical science has advanced a lot since then, so please feel free to share that story with them, Andrea, as it might give everyone in the family some hope. Hope is always good to have!

RIP Sasha, best dog ever, pictured shortly before she died, Death either by euthanasia or natural causes is only the end of the animal inhabiting its body; I believe the spirit lives on.
