Terry Groves Update

Bob, since I broke my femur at the State shoot, I have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. This is a cancer of the blood that destroys the bones. Hence, the mass that was in my femur. Think it broke when I fell because a hole was left when they removed the tumor. Rods & plates were in place so didn't have to have surgery. But in the xray they found a spot on my spine which they have filled with "cement." Since then with a PET scan they have found 2 other spots. I am currently taking chemo pills at home and having infusion once a week at WVU.
