My Hubby Roy has Cancer

here is a note from Roy himself ;
As many of you are aware by now, I was diagnosed with cancer last Thursday. Salivary Gland Cancer to be exact. After a stressful week of tests and multiple Dr visits, it appears we have a plan of attack. Surgery is scheduled for Friday, April 8 at UCLA. They wanted April 12 but I said Hell No! Iron Maiden is that Friday! Anyway, here is what I know about my condition so far: The tumor seems to be small and self contained to the gland which is good. No spreading. I will have a large ugly cut from the top of my ear along the length of my neck and reconstructive surgery is going to be needed. They are going to remove the gland and most of the tissue around it. I will be in the hospital for 2-4 days so the 8th works for Iron Maiden. It was confirmed today that post surgery treatment will include 6 weeks of radiation. I'm not asking for folks to feel bad for me but I am asking for your prayers. This is for sure going to knock me down but I won't stay down and that's where your support is needed. If you have questions or concerns you all know how to reach me! I'm putting my War Team together and I hope you all will join!
