Phillip S. Lerma Jr

PLEASE READ....... Phil has been battling gastric intestinal cancer for the past 13 months. Sadly, after 2 surgeries, chemo, radiation, endoscopic procedures and 4 hospital stays, the cancer just wouldnt let up. After our last attempt to have a stint placed failed, Phil and I were informed that nothing else medically could be done for him. The cancer has spread over most if not all his abdominal area and he is no longer able to eat or receive nourishment. We were sat down and were given all our options but with only weeks left to live no matter what we attempted, Phil and I made the decision to come home and receive hospice care to be near our children and family. I brought Phil home from Stanford hospial last Saturday on Feb 3rd. Everyday, my husband gets a little more withdrawn and everyday his condition worsens. The doctors can tell you what to expect but they cant prepare you for the pain and heartache it causes to watch the man you love slowly lose the laughter and light from his eyes. Thank you all for your prayers and support it truly means a lot to us. We love you and God Bless!! XOXoxo (Big Kiss, Big Hug, Big Kiss, Little Hug, Little Kiss, Little Hug). Jr wanted to make sure we added that in.
