Well, I am having a hard time finding the correct words, so I will do my best. 

Shane has a rare cancer called Odontogenic Carcinoma.  If you try to look it up online...good luck!  There are less than 150 cases confirmed.  However, please understand there are a lot on things like ghost & clear cell which are NOT what he has.

He will have to undergo several surgeries.  The first one will be to remove the tumor from under his chin & any surrounding bone/tissues that it has come into contact with.  They will also have to take all his lymph nodes & part of his thyroid gland.  If they feel that they can get out all of the cancer at this time, they will then take out the smaller bone from his lower left leg in order to rebuild him a new jawbone & chin.  If they are not certain that they got it all, they will wait a week & then go back in to take more out to do the reconstruction.

He will have a Trach because of all the swelling & will remain in ICU for at least a few days...

He will have to have physical therapy on his leg...he has to learn to walk all over again.

As of right now, he is doing well with all things considered.  I know that you must be wondering what can you do to help...

PRAYERS... please feel free to add him to your Churches' prayer Lists...share this with your friends...but PRAY!

Thank you for reading this... I will keep you all posted on his progress!

BTW...Shane is married to a lovely wife and they are blessed with two children... He is about 38 years old.
