We Are Very Thankful This Holiday Season!

We have recently found out that Howard's cancer is in remission! He still has to finish out the six chemo series. He has the rest of this week and the last series will start the week of December 14.

His cancer is a fairly rare type of aggressive, double-hit Non Hodgkins lymphoma (Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma with Burkitt like features). There is a great possibility he may have to undergo an autologous stem cell transplant after the first of the year. His oncologist will be doing a round table tonight with 20 other experts in the field on Howard's case.

Thank you everyone that has said a prayer or sent well wishes...they definitely worked!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

You do have a lot to be thankful for, such wonderful news. It's so easy to take our health for granted until we don't have it. Hope he stays on the upward road!
