Thanks so much for including a note asking for prayers for my son in his battle with cancer in the last edition of the Notre Dame Magazine.
It looks like all the prayers are being answered. After going through 9 weeks of pre surgery chemo, two surgeries to remove his stomach and 9 weeks of post surgery chemo, we received the best possible news a few weeks ago. Tom's blood markers are normal and his CT scan showed no signs of any cancer. Talk about a happy thanksgiving…!
Please pass along the good news and our thanks for the support. At times like this it's wonderful to belong to the Notre Dame family – and especially the great class of '68.
Happy holidays to all.
Tom Cuggino
p.s. Tom and his wife were also blessed with the arrival of twin girls on August 29th (Adriana and Talia). They join their 4 year old sister Isabella in a really hectic household, so ask everyone to keep the prayers up for a much happier set of issues.
