Bill Atkinson ’63

Class (1963) Agent Don Schneider reports that Bill is battling cancer of the neck that has affected his vocal chords as well as other areas of the throat and surrounding vasculature. Bill and his wife Linda made a recent trip to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Treatment Center to explore surgery as an option, but unfortunately that course of action was ruled out. Bill and Linda had hoped otherwise. Bill is working with physicians to determine a course of chemotherapy in an effort to control the cancer. If the cancer fails to respond to treatment, Bill and his physicians may choose to try experimental drugs.

    Dear Bill and Linda,
    I was searching the “K” ’63 news and found the article about you, Bill, having to battle cancer. I had a battle with cancer in 1999. I am sorry to hear that surgery is not an option. Would one of you write an email to me and let me know how chemo is going for you, please?
    Tish has cancer, also, and is 91 years old and still living in Kalamazoo.
    You both will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Peace, love and hugs, Elaine (Goff) Hutchcroft
