Dottie asked us to post the following ...
It is with a heavy heart that I write this email. I have been in the hospital here in Grand Blanc since 8/19 and just got out on 8/31. My cancer has spread to my liver and my bone marrow is no longer producing blood because it has pre Leukemia. My hemoglobin is very low and so are my red platelets. There is no treatment available to me. I do not know how long I have to live. The doctors don't even know. Because of my low hemoglobin and platelets, I still have to go in and get transfusions for blood and platelets. That is what is keeping me alive for now. Eventually those will have to stop and let nature takes its course.
Please keep me and my girls and my family in your prayers to give us the strength to get thru this.
I want you to know what an honor it was to work with both of you in the band program. Take care and God Bless.
