To the students of Washington,
I want to thank all of you who donated money and participated in the “Hats For Hep” Day. The $640+ that you raised and donated helps my family a great deal. Because of my cancer treatments, my wife was required to leave her job for awhile to take care of me. Therefore she is no longer being paid. While I continue to be paid, the loss of one paycheck does make a difference. Plus, we have a lot more expenses now. I do have insurance, but that only pays for part of my treatment. Also, we have to travel between my home in Kewanee and the hospital inIowa City, so that is also an added expense. Your gift of money helps us a great deal. It is very much needed and appreciated. Your generosity is just one more example of what a great bunch of students you are and whyWashingtonis such a great school.
I have been very sick from my treatments and have not gotten out at all. I have also been in the hospital numerous times. I have undergone both chemotherapy and radiation treatments to kill the tumor that is growing in my throat. That seems to have worked. The doctors say the tumor has stopped growing and is basically dead. On Tuesday, March 13, I will have surgery in which the tumor and part of my throat will be removed. It will take about six weeks to recover from that. But right now, everything looks good.
Again, I thank you all very much for your cards and support and look forward to returning to school later this spring. Thank you again.
Mark R. Hepner
