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.

Another check on the bucket list before the mission
There is a movie that Eric has been looking forward to that opens 2 day AFTER he enters the MTC. So he has made it perfectly clear that if we get an invitation to the screening of this movie that he WAS going with me. (Sorry Todd you just got replaced). I know that everyone feels bad that part of my job is to watch movies before they actually open. You have to do what you have to do, right? :) Well we did get the invitation to this movie and we watched it this morning… WOW it is good!! I am not allowed to talk about it, but we were both impressed! While we were in SLC, we had to stop by and visit a pretty special kid, Tristan.
