Title 9 pointed me to Vada's page on CaringBridge.com, a website for family and friends to share information and support throughout a significant health challenge. There, his family revealed on February 18th that Vada's cancer had metastasized to his brain.
In the next update on the 26th, his wife provides the following update:
Vada is home from the hospital & resting comfortably. He has finished radiation treatments to the brain & is undergoing treatments to his spine & pelvic bone. Radiation makes Vada very tired. I am still limiting visitors & will let you know when this changes.
We have never, ever, in our lives felt so scared. We also have never felt so loved. Thank you for the cards, emails, text messages, phone calls & messages on this website; thank you for your continued expressions of love & support. Thank you to the Ann Arbor Police Department for their unwavering love. They give true meaning to the phrase, "Whatever you need, whenever you need it." Thank you for understanding if we don't personally return your message. We both want you to know, we love you back.
Sarah (and Vada)
We here at the MZone wanted to let Vada and his family know they're in our thoughts and prayers.
We also wanted to provide the Vada's CaringBridge.com info above in case any of our readers want to give any words of encouragement to Vada and his family during this most difficult time.
