Let's help Ron keep up his fight against lung cancer.  Ron has fought for his country as a decorated combat veteran in the US Army Special Forces and now he is fighting for himself and his family.  A loving husband and a father of two boys, Ron has selflessly served his country as a Green Beret and, more recently, as a civilian in law enforcement. Please contribute to this campaign so Ron and his family can focus on his treatment. 

Ron starts his first series of chemotherapy treatments on Friday March 17. While stage IV lung cancer is not currently considered curable, the doctors are doing genetic testing on the cancer to confirm the suspicion it is a type they can target with new drugs that have been found to make a big difference with the type of lung cancer that is typically found in young nonsmokers.

All,

Here is an update from Ron:

"After 4 weeks of treatment, a follow up brain MRI showed that the two tumors in my brain were responding well- one was no longer visible and the other was half the diameter seen before. This is incredibly encouraging news. We see my oncologist again next week, and should then hear when we will conduct a full body scan to see how the vast majority of the tumors are doing. If the chemo is shrinking the brain tumors which were roughly the size of a pea, it should be having an effect on the baseball sized tumor in my lung, and all those in between as well. No one can say exactly how long this chemo therapy will continue to work, but every day it does is additional time with friends and family. And every day is additional time for science to continue to work on additional treatments, and someday, a cure."

We are so incredibly humbled by offerings of support from friends, colleagues, and those others moved to help us in this journey. We have been on a very unexpected and jarring path since finding out about this disease three weeks ago. It has taken me personally to the lowest of lows, but it has also affirmed our faith: In god and in people. I don't know where this fight will lead, but we will continue to fight every step of the way. There is no way we can ever repay what has been offered to us by this community, but know that everyone of you means something special to us as we continue to move forward. I will not quit fighting, I won't quit looking for new answers, and I won't quit hugging my family until we are through this. Thank you all.
