    I just saw the news myself Judy.(FB) She will be missed. If it wasn't for her spunk and determination to fight, I may not have had the courage myself. Her sense of humor helped too!

    DH starts chemo AND radiation on July 16. Three rounds of chemo (depending on how he handles it) radiation for 30 days or so. It's a pretty big tumor and the ENT Doc said less than 50% chance of survival. Then we had an appt at the onc/rad Doc and he said 60 to 70 percent chance. And his...
