Helmut Straeche

Dennis Vaillancourt has been visiting Helmut in the hospital for the past few weeks. He was taken in as he was having trouble swallowing.

Today, Dennis reported that he has a cancerous mass in his chest that is preventing him from swallowing solid food. He is on a liquid diet and expects to be so for the rest of his life. He will be receiving three sessions of radiation therapy this week and two more next week. He hopes to be able to go home once this treatment is complete. He assured me that he was not in pain. He is very upbeat and is content to ‘take it as it comes.’
Well, Helmut, we are so pleased to hear you are upbeat and taking everything in stride. We hope to see you back at Bay Shore playing billiards with the guys once your treatments are complete. We wish you the best of luck and hope you get well soon. A card from the pool guys has been sent to Helmut. Thank you,
