(From Curtis Reece): Heading to Mayo Clinic today. My brother, William will undergo a series of tests this week and is scheduled for surgery on Thursday, December 17.
We have researched the best hospitals in the USA and the best surgeons. We have the best of the best.
Please send positive thoughts, light a candle, burn sage, pray to whomever/whatever you pray to for strength, guidance, and ask that the surgeon's hands are guided for a successful outcome to this surgery.
Sarah, Will and I will be at Mayo Clinic until December 24. However, an armada of family, friends, and friends that are family will be with us in spirit. The song "I'll Be Home For Christmas" is taking on a much greater meaning for us this year.

Happy Birthday William!!
I'm excited to announce that Will is nearing the end of his treatments! He has fought so bravely. Will has endured 16 weeks of IV chemotherapy, followed by 6 weeks of chemo/radiation combo. This last stretch has been a rough one. The type of cancer he has merits for the strongest type of radiation. 800 RAD administered systemically is lethal, and Will is getting 5,000 RAD focused in one area. He has been having a hard time eating, sleeping, and getting around because he's been so sick. Never-ending pain. He has been prescribed a silver cream to help combat the numerous sores that radiation has caused.
But still, he fights.
But still, he smiles.
But still, he puts everyone else first.
I'm so proud of him. Needless to say this is the most sick Will has ever been. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. We have surgery scheduled in 8 weeks at the Mayo clinic with the highest ranking surgeon for this type of surgery in the nation. We are so thankful that we have the resources to receive this level of care. Appropriately enough, he'll be with this skilled team on or around Thanksgiving. We are hoping for complete remission and recovery by June 2016.
Please keep Will in your thoughts and prayers. Please, please help me make his birthday a special one, despite all of his hardships, and lighten his load for him. Let's rally around our friend, this amazing man, Will Reece
Much love to you all,

Hello Friends,

Your positivity and prayers are making a huge impact! We made it to the Mayo clinic and have been blessed to be teamed up with the best GI surgeon in the nation and arguably the world. Will is going to need to travel back to Mayo several more times for testing and surgeries. His cancer is in a very rare and dangerous location, so even in the best possible hands there is a much higher chance of the cancer returning. He's going to continue the most aggressive form of chemotherapy and soon to follow with a chemo/radiation combo.

Will is ever the fighter, from the perspective of a supporter, family and friends have seen him take blow after blow, but you'd never know. This man has never stopped smiling, never stopped shining, never given defeat a sliver of a thought. You can feel his love for others and for life with an astonishing magnitude. We're so lucky to have him in our lives.
His cancer WILL be beat. He will overcome, time and again.
Please, friends, give if you can... and more than anything, please keep him in your thoughts, hearts, and prayers.

Hello friends,
Today marks Will's completion of his second round of chemo. We've also gotten his appointments at Mayo scheduled. He'll be traveling to Rochester, MN next month to ensure his best chances of beating his cancer. His bravery and positivity continues to inspire all those that encounter him. Will has felt your love and support and is incredibly grateful for the outpouring. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts, hearts, and prayers. Give if you can give. It makes such an astounding difference.
No towel in my corner.
