Prayers going out to you and your wife in this tough time. Health is really the most important thing. Positive thought from both of you will also help. I had a friend that went through 2 chemo treatments and he is clear now for over 5 years.

Best to both of you,

I've never met or spoke with you Dave, but always admired your work. Prayers and thoughts with you and Joan as you deal with her medical crisis. #cancersucks but it can be beat!

Posted by: Dredwin Feb 9 2018, 08:54 AM

Hope all goes well with your wife. My car has your muffler so I feel a connection with you. Not sure if you plan on going to the Fred Hutchinson center for her treatment but there are plenty of high quality cancer experts in the area.
