My First Entry

November 8th, 2008

Hey guys,

Its Andy.  So as many of you know I was diagnosed with Melanoma Skin Cancer this week.  I am headed back to Cincinnati from Colorado this Sunday 11/9/08 to be with family as well as see a few Oncologists and doctors.  I am scheduled for surgery on Friday 11/14/08 have an excision on the area on my neck where the Melanoma is located.  The surgeon will also remove the Lymph Nodes which have been affected and determine the extent of the cancer.

I want to thank everyone for their kind words and messages over that past few days.  I really appreciate the support.  I know that I will beat this and I am so grateful to have such great friends and family to help me through this!

I will keep this site updated with any news to come.

Thanks everyone,
Andy
