MAHALO FROM BROTHER GUTIERREZ!
Just wanted to send out an update and a big Mahalo to my Union Brothers and Sisters for all of your help and prayers for our son Keenan. To bring everyone to current, Keenan had been diagnosed with Testicular Cancer and had his first surgery in May- it was later determined that his cancer had spread into his abdomen. After 3 rounds of chemotherapy, he was not healthy enough to continue and so we sought out a second opinion. We flew to Houston, Texas for him to be evaluated at MD Anderson- the leading cancer center of America. Once there, it was immediately determined that he would have his 4th round of chemo and then have surgery. We also found out that we would have to stay there for 2 ½ months for his treatment and recovery. The type of major surgery he had to have entailed removal of the cancerous lymph nodes in his abdominal cavity. Most of you also know that he had a kidney transplant when he was younger and were very generous of your donations and prayers at that time as well so we truly know the value of your assistance. After those 2 long months of waiting and healing, he was finally cleared and is “officially” in remission- no detectable traces of cancer present. He is currently still recovering but is getting stronger. He can’t wait to get back to work- for those of you who don’t know, he is in Honolulu Fire stationed at #17 Kaneohe- and should start light duty at the end of this month. He has had some amazing experiences in his 26 years and hopefully has gotten the “medical” ones out of his system! Our family cannot express enough to you all just how much we have been blessed with the generosity of our family and friends- especially from my FFD family. We all know how crazy the job we do here can be sometimes but take it from someone who has experienced it more than once- taking care of each other here makes it all worthwhile. Thank you all very very much!!
