Be a Farren Fan – Live Long and Prosper!
The year 2020 hasn’t been a great one for many, but for the Davis Family it has been especially hard. In the early summer while lifting pallets from the back of his car, Farren felt his back suddenly give out. Weeks and weeks of physical therapy and medicine to ease his back pain did nothing and he finally found himself with experts at the University of Utah and Hunstman Cancer Center in Salt Lake City, UT. What he thought was a simple back strain ended up being a significant diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. His Thoracic vertebrae T-7 and T-8 were essentially eaten away by the tumor and it was putting pressure on his spine. By September 1, he was beginning months of chemotherapy and radiation to treat this aggressive cancer with the hopes of being prepared for an autologous stem cell transplant in 6 months. Luckily the Davis family was not naïve to the cancer battle since Farren has been an unfaltering caregiver for Nancy as she has battled breast cancer this past year.

Farren has been home from the U of U covid unit for about 10 days. He is improving some everyday and walking with more strength and confidence. He is on oxygen 24-7… we are hoping that won’t be permanent. Through this all he has kept his sense of humor and fighting spirit. He will meet with the Myeloma team at Huntsman Cancer Institute on November 19 and hopes to know when he will be able to start treatment again.
We both agree that there is an up side to all of this…and that is reconnecting with many of you! Thank you so much for the notes and the generous contributions. We love hearing from all of you!
