Please Help Prolong Tony’s Life!

On February 19, 2018, less than two months after his father passed, my husband Tony received a call that we never expected and that would change his and our family’s lives forever. It was his doctor calling to tell him he had liver cancer! In addition to treatment, he was also in need of a liver transplant.

It's been nearly a year since my last update. Tony is still doing well. We've had our ups and downs regarding his health, but for the most part, we're doing good. This month, he will see his liver specialist for his six-month follow-up, have more CT scans of his chest, abdomen and pelvis, have a telephone appointment with his radiology oncologist, and have his monthly follow-up appointment with his chemotherapy oncologist.

In December, 2021, we celebrated our 40-year wedding anniversary! Since our children were young when we had our last family portrait taken, the only gift we wanted from them was a family photo of all four of us, and thankfully, they delivered! I've posted one of the pics here under an album titled "Family Photos".

Well, that's all for now. Thank you all again so very much for your ongoing love, support and encouragement!

From our hearts to yours,

Today is Monday, May 10, 2021, and Tony finished his last and fifth round of stereotactic radiation for two more areas in his left lung where the liver cancer has spread.

Last month, he had more CT scans of his chest, abdomen and pelvis. Although, his scans looked good overall, his chemotherapy oncologist advised us that the one left upper-lobe lesion in his lung had gotten bigger and she would confer with his radiology oncologist regarding whether or not he needed more stereotactic radiation.

The radiology oncologist told us there is also the progression of a tiny tumor in a new location that is close to the bone. Initially, he prescribed four more rounds of stereotactic radiation for both areas but a couple of days later changed it to five lower dosages that would not be as toxic. He was very optimistic about the treatment. Tony did really well and has not experienced any side effects. He has a telehealth appointment next month with this oncologist and will have a post radiation scan in three months. He also continues to see his chemotheraphy oncologist monthly.

God continues to care for us and provide us with everything we need thanks to everyone's prayers and generosity. We could not have made it this far without your love, encouragement and support. Thank you again from the depths of our hearts! We love you all very much!
