I don't know how many of you know this but I wanted to get this out to as many as possible so we could support Tony and Karen as much as possible. They gave me permission to post this.

Tony is facing cancer yet again and has been receiving chemo preparing him for a stem cell transplant. We used to know this as a bone marrow transplant. He and Karen are keeping a blog ( http://ajcstatus.blogspot.com/) to keep us informed on how he is doing and could use all the love they can get right now!

Please pray, send cards, bring a meal, visit if Tony is up to it. Don't forget Karen! She needs us too! Mayo has a wonderful tool for us to use! Here is a link to a calendar full of opportunities for us to help! http://www.carecalendar.org/logon/101445 God bless you all for your love and kindness! Let's take good care of our friends!

Thanks Diane,
Been watching the Blog and Calendar.
Boy such an ordeal. But Tony sounds really good and positive, even with all that going on.
Keeping my hopes and prayers going for both Tony and Karen. This is a very difficult time.

Diane,

Thanks for sharing this with the community. I know everyone here who can help will help. I live really close to them so have already been in touch with Karen. And both of them are so positive although the last two weeks have been extremely difficult with all the therapy and the transplant. Prayers have been constant as has support from all their friends.
