This is our journey through cancer and Alzheimer's. Barb had a rare cancer and passed away March 1, 2012. She did not loose her fight with cancer, she won and laughed in its face till her last breath. She lived valiantly!. Bruce, her loving husband of 50 years and 5 months, has Alzheimer's. I am one of their children, Kurt, and I write this blog not only for them - but for you. Thank you for taking this journey with us and we hope you will feel free to leave comments and thoughts.

Update: June 15, 2011
A successful trip to the doctor this week for mom. Her CT Scan came back clean as can be! absolutely no signs of cancer or even that she's been through treatments! WAHOO!!! Very good news. She doesn't have to have the next CT Scan until October. They are telling us that once we can get past the 2 year mark the chances of it returning are greatly reduced. That's exciting news for sure.
Mom's hair is starting to come back very nicely. Still a few bare spots but we figure in another month we'll get her to the hair dresser and she'll be like new again. It's getting tiring wearing that hat especially on their daily walks. Mom, Dad and the dog, Rita, are up to 2 miles of walking a day.
Good job, Mom! Now we're all focused on the Alzheimer's Walk.
