Craig Daugard and John Arends both lost the first fights of their life to Duct Bile Cancer. Craig died on Oct 10, 2019 after a 2 year battle he was 70 years old. John Arends was the first of our group to fight Duct Bile cancer and died on Jan 26, 2008 he was 60 years old. Both were from small towns in Northern Iowa and college budies with our youthful party "tribe" back in the early 1970's. Our historical play grounds were in Mason City at NIACC (North Iowas Area Community College) and Universtiy of MN Mankato then known as Mankato State. After college many of us took our partying ways to MPLS. As the years passed we all found jobs, married, moved, had children and finally became adults. We are now all in our 70's and and call ourselves members of the"3MOF" (MPLS, Mankato, Mason City, Old, Farts) a fun loving like minded group with a common youthful past.
There is nothing fun about Duct Bile Cancer... it is rare, uncurable and extremely unfair to all involved. It continues to take life unchecked. Watching bad things happen to good people is always sobering. A cure needs to be found.
To help those that we do not know and honnor the wishes of our 2 freinds Craig Daugard and John Arends the 3MOF's have started this donation drive.
