Grieving during the holidays

By

Fritz McDowell is celebrating what will likely be his final Christmas. He stopped treatment last month for his lymphoma. Doctors say he's likely to die within six months. But McDowell, who is 95, is at peace…Fritz McDowell and his family decided to try one last treatment after the radiation didn't get rid of his cancer. The one-time steriod treatment nearly killed him. So he started hospice care Nov. 25 at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.
