November 16, 2006



After being born with 1 kidney my father-in law was diagnosed with kidney cancer. With the help of the Cleveland Clinic he fought off the cancer, and had been cancer free for 7 years. He was recently admitted for a problem with blood in his urine. The problem seems to be coming from his kidney. He developed a problem with recognizing people, and upon further tests, MRI of the brain it was discovered he has 10 lesions on his brain that they can see. Radiation they say will slow the growth, and may prevent more lesions from forming.

I love my father-in law, and I hope God will give him more time.

I appreciate your website, knowing someone else is fighting to win against this disease.
