An announcement

While others were watching the solar eclipse, I was sitting at the White Plains Cancer Center.



Stu has metastatic prostate cancer. He will be doing chemo & hormone therapy. No, the survival rates aren't good for prostate cancer this advanced and at his age (55). It's like getting breast cancer young -- it's more likely to be aggressive. And this one is aggressive. As far as we can tell, no tumors in the prostate itself.

We will appreciate any prayers, well-wishes, etc. For those who are Catholic, St. Peregrine may be of interest.

I'm the one online, so you can put any messages you have for him here, or you can email me: marypat.campbell@gmail.com.
