FAMILY FIRST

I wanted to give everyone a heads up, and would really appreciate if you could take a second and read the following paragraphs. Thank you in advance for your time...

I received news last week that my father was not feeling well and would be heading to the doctors. He was suffering from stomach pains and nausea. The doctor ordered a full CT scan on his abdominal area. Getting the results a few days later, my family was told my dad has a tumor adjacent to his stomach, hence the reason for the pain.

Yesterday, my mom and dad met with an oncologist, who confirmed the diagnosis and confirmed that the tumor is cancerous. The next order of business is to biopsy the tumor, and to scan the rest of his body to see what stage the cancer is in and to estimate the first steps for treatment. The oncologist informed my parents, that the tumor is inoperable, and that some type of chemotherapy will be needed as a form of treatment.

My father, Bill, is 55 years old, as has been very healthy his entire life. As you can imagine, this news been extremely challenging for my family to handle. We kindly ask that you pray over this situation and pray that the cancer has been caught in the early stages. We are also relying on strength from our family and friends, so that we can be strong for my dad. He has been the rock of our family, and he has always been there for us. As a family, our faith in God is strong and unwavering.

I am sure that in the next few weeks/months/ect, I will be spending as much time as possible with family. It is a blessing from God that they are only a 4 hr car trip away. I am asking for your patience and cooperation, in the event that I am away from the gym. I have spoken with all of the coaches of CFC, and they so graciously have offered to help take on some of the workload of coaching during this time. With that being said, I unfortunately will not be in attendance at this weekends Primal Games event. Coach Hartzell will be there to corral the group and to make sure CFC represents in the best way possible.

 Thank you so much for your prayers, and I will continue to update the group, as my family knows more. I love you all, and can't thank you enough for the support. God Bless you all,
-WG
