On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

Getting back to real life

Meeting with Dr Spraker as she finished the Mt Nebo 1/2 marathon

Eric Giving Dr Spraker high five for completeing the run

Eric back to work at Stadium Cinemas
This weekend was great because we were able to get a lot done, Eric went back to work as a projectionist at Stadium Cinemas and we were able to cheer Dr Spraker on during the Mt Nebo 1/2 marathon!

Eric is feeling great and the "Stache" is still growing.  His eyebrows are back and his hair line is coming in strong...... for a little longer!  But the good news is that he is done with the Red Devil... so if he losses his hair this round, he will not be given any more chemo that will cause hair loss.... He is looking forward to having Tonya come and give him hair cuts in the near future.
