In Memory of Patti Cauthen

Patti Cauthen

Another Angel Gets Her Wings…

It is with a heavy heart that I report the lost of a true warrior in the fight against cancer, DFAC friend and supporter Patti Cauthen.  Patti was truly an angel on earth.  She always had a kind word for everyone she met, and she was a pillar of support for many.  If you knew Patti, you know her smile brightened up a room.

We will miss you Patti, and we will continue the fight against this horrible disease.  We are all better to have known you.  Rest in the arms of the Lord.


Many of you know that I finished my last radiation treatment this past Wednesday. Hallelujah! I would not have done as well as I did without the grace of God, and without all my friends and family.

I wanted to share some pictures with you of a tradition at MD Anderson. Each time a patience completes a milestone, such as completing chemo or radiation, they get to ring the bell there is the area of treatment.

The bells are donated from prior patient’s. I can tell you, and Alma will back me up, it is a BIG DEAL when the opportunity comes!Other patient’s, family, friends, technicians, nurses, and sometimes the doctors participate.



My pictures include the two technicians that gave me the radiation treatments for the 6 weeks, and also my sister Sarah.  It was a truly great day for me!
