Need a Crutch?

Walking With the Bakers


Next Steps

Friends and Family -

So many of you know that we weren't expecting the pathology report we got.

Rusty has been referred to the National Institutes of Health for treatment, and will also be followed by care teams at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda.

Our understanding is that Rusty will receive both radiation and chemotherapy at the same time for the next several months, then further decisions will be made.

In the meantime, he's decided to work on his dissertation - something on the Parables of Jesus - and plans to finish that by the time his first rounds of treatment conclude.

Thank you for your continuing prayers, words, and notes. We appreciate you all so very much!
