As most of you know my father has been very sick for a couple of months and we had no idea what was wrong with him. UNC labeled him as the mystery man because they couldnt figure out what was going on with him. The doctors at the cancer center at Alamance Regional discovered that he had cancer. He has two types of cancer. The cancer they found in his rectum is the kind that is slow growing and really doesnt spread to other areas of the body. They also found cancer in his liver which is the type that spreads fast, the doctor said that it is very rare that this cancer starts in the liver, it starts somewhere else and then spreads to the liver, and other organs. They suspect he may have cancer in his lungs because there has been some spots that has shown up on xrays, but cant say 100% because they are unable to do a biopsy of his lungs because his lungs are in really bad shape and its too much of a risk. The also suspect that he may have cancer in his bones.
For those of you that has ever met my father you know that he is a very strong man and doesnt let a whole lot keep him down. All of this sickness has really taken a toll on him and his spirit. He is very weak and in alot of pain and has not been able to eat much of anything for the past week.  
They are supposed to start chemo today, and his doctor said that she has seen people older than my father and in worse shape that he is in respond well to the treatment and recover fully.
Please keep my father and my family in your prayers.
