Doug Kilcher

Please continue to keep Doug Kilcher and his family in your prayers. He’s our conference Secretary (equivalent to chancellor, for my Catholic friends), and has been battling multiple myeloma.

I don’t recall having heard of the disease, a cancer of the blood, before Doug became ill. Yet Roy Scheider recently died from it; a little research shows that Peter Boyle, Ann Landers, Louis Rukeyser, and Mark Lenard also died from it. Geraldine Ferraro is in remission.

I saw Doug a few weeks ago and he was back in the office looking great. But he’s not out of the woods yet, as his blog update notes.
