GOOD MORNING from The Caring Bridge for John Kosmoski

I set up a website at 
for 

By clicking on the link above or
it will take you right to the website.

The Caring Bridge asked for my contact list.
I gave them the whole thing so if you
get more than one notice
please don't send me hate mail.
You know me and 
TECHY stuff!
I barely know what I am doing
all the way around -life included.

Today is the first day of 
John's treatment.
Four hours of strong chemo
AND
radiation.

I will keep you all posted.
Thank you so much for your 
prayers and support.

I will try to keep a daily post 
(or every other day)
on 
You can catch up there whenever you have time.
I think you have to sign in to 
access the site but it is safe to do that.

I have followed several
"journeys" that way.

We are off and running!
Wish us luck!

ps----MyHero is still 
"napping" with his little buddy
but I will haul him out of here soon!

  56. I am praying for you both. My husband had base of tongue cancer, the feeding tube etc. Treatment for Head and neck cancer is brutal and scary. The Cancer Society has a network of wonderful people called Cancer Survivors Network. They are grouped by type of cancer. The Head and neck cancer group is very active and knowledgeable. I would not have made it through my husbands treatment without them. Praying for you both.
