Team Rex Update: THE CANCER IS GONE!

October 17th

Rex after round 3

Want to hear the best news ever? Rex started round 4 of chemo today only to have his oncologist tell him the tumor has disappeared! The cancer is gone! WOO HOOO! No word on if he’ll have to continue chemo or radiation. We are simply celebrating this great news.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for him. It’s working!
As for the race, the Tempe Y is behind “Team Rex.” The race is Saturday, November 18th. I’ll post more info as they decide on the details. If you are in the Phoenix area, please attend. You’ll get to meet this wonderful, cancer-free man in person.
