It is with great sadness that I report that my father-in-law Neal Stump has terminal cancer. Neal underwent radiation treatments for a tumor behind his eye earlier this year. The tumor reduced. He has been feeling healthier and undergoing physical therapy to help improve his overall mobility. He was gaining confidence. We all thought that he was doing well.
Today a PET scan revealed that Neal has cancer all throughout his body. The doctors have told him he won’t live to see another winter.
I write because some of you will want to know. Also, my priority right now is spending time with Bryon as he goes through the grieving process of losing his father over a long term illness, so I imagine I will be online somewhat less.
Neal is an excellent father and grandfather, well loved by his children and grandchildren. His life is the best kind of life. People will miss him, and he has made a difference. He has kept safe and provided for the ones he loved.
And I expect that’s what you need to know about that.
