    With my check up this summer we received the news that the cancer had returned. Treating it with radiation again would be risky so they are treating it with Chemotherapy. I have had 4 treatments now, there are up and down days and I am losing the little hair I have left. Mustache remains ok so far! Next week they are going to try Immunotherapy along with the Chemo, they say the treatments will not kill the cancer, they just want to control it. At 3 months of treatment they will do a scan and see the results. I am still working and enjoying life as normal. I am not real good at letting people know whats going on.
    Dave

    I talked to Josh last evening and Dave is scheduled for surgery Tuesday morning (February 12) at Mayo in Rochester to remove the cancer from one of his lungs.

    Please keep Dave, Julie, Josh and Tara... and family in prayer as he enters the next stage of his battle.

    Surgery was a success!!! The Mayo team was able to successfully remove the tumor and the lower left lobe of his lung. They got clear margins and lymph nodes. He is cancer-free and chemo/radiation are unecessary! He still has a long recovery ahead and he is not out of the woods yet. He is at high risk for developing issues after surgery. They estimate a 5 to 7 day hospital stay. We are still waiting to see him. We are praying for a smooth and healthy recovery!
