Good news from the 714 camp today!
Here's a Jimmy update from Jimmy:
Found out today - NO CHEMO! I will do 7 weeks of radiation stating in about a month. Also - had my first full day of work in the office today. Felt good to get out of the house and be around the good folks at FedEx!.
And here's a Jimmy update From Donna:
Today I'm thankful that Jimmy will NOT have to have chemo....only radiation, & that will start next month. Not that radiation on the throat area will be in any way EASY....but taking chemo off the table makes us grateful. — feeling grateful with Jimmy Fulp.
Whatever your "thing" is...be it praying, sending out good vibes, thinking good thoughts or any other positive ritual you may have...please take several moments throughout your day today & do your "thing" for Jimmy and his family. Today is Jimmy's surgery to remove the cancer from his throat. We love you Jimmy!! #gotthis
Jimmy's wife, Donna, has the latest Jimmy update...
Jimmy's PET scan showed his chest being clear....now he is going to see an upper gastro doctor this Wednesday to pinpoint the primary tumor in his throat before surgery on the 30th.
Surgery date is set for Wednesday, October 30th. We should have the results of the PET scan tomorrow. I will update as soon as we know something. Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts and cards. It makes going through this a little easier knowing y'all have my back!

Here's a Jimmy update from his facebook page...
UPDATE: I have a PET scan scheduled for Thursday (10/17). This will determine if the cancer has spread or is just in my neck region. Thanks to everyone for your kind words and prayers. They mean more to me and my family than you can imagine.
Please keep our brother, Jimmy Fulp, and his family in your thoughts.

I wanted to give everyone on here an update of my follow-up visit. My biopsy results came back showing that I have throat cancer – at least stage 3. I am under the care of Dr. Samant with UT Medical Group. He is amazing! I will have surgery within the next 2 weeks to remove the mass, the lymph nodes in my neck and some of my tongue. Radiation will follow. The surgery will have me down for a couple of weeks and the radiation will keep me from doing any gigs in the near future – probably 2 or 3 months. As I have said before – I have a beautiful wife by my side that is stronger than any of you can imagine. I also have more close friends than anyone should have. God works ALL things for good – even this. Keep my family and me in your prayers. #gotTHIS
