It's been quiet around here on our website lately but we have been busy behind the scenes.

First and foremost, Michelle wrapped up her last round of chemotherapy back in August and a few weeks ago she had a PET/CT scan.  There are no signs of metastasis in any major organs however three small spots are showing near her tailbone, belly button and upper abdomen.  It's hard to say from the scan what these are, they could be tumor growth or inflammation.  But after some blood work this past week it's clear that there is some more cancer growth.

The original second round treatment plan was to do 6 weeks of radiation in the pelvic area, but there is now a concern about some of the spots not being in the radiation field.  Therefore, we have been busy arranging for a second opinion and Michelle has appointments scheduled over the next few weeks to help come up with the next best course of treatment.  We are getting opinions from the best doctors up and down the east coast, so rest assured that she is in good hands.

In "Yes We Can Sir" world, here is what we have been up to:

We participated in the "Get your Rear in Gear" event in Saratoga Springs, 
NY last month.  We had fun and over doubled our goal of $500 by raising over $1000!  Thank you to all who participated and sponsored us. The money raised went to the Colon Cancer Coalition

We were so successful raising money to help Michelle and now she wants to pay it forward.  So back in July we submitted our paperwork to officially obtain non-profit status.  We are still waiting for the good word but hoping we hear back soon.

More updates to stay tuned!
