TCCfx 2014 Dr. Eddie Gose, was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He and his wife Davilla moved to Oregon this week where Eddie will receive treatment and undergo surgery.
Dr. Eddie has been a fixture in the College of Education at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa for the past decade as a student in our department and as an instructional designer with DCDC. Eddie has been having a stellar year: PhD in Educational Technology, keynote speaker for TCCfx 2014, Best Paper Award for E-Learn 2014, and his marriage to Davilla. He is loved by all and TCC Hawaii wants to support Eddie and Davilla as he gets “ready to scale Mt. Everest,” as his doctor terms it.
Eddie’s friend, Steve Uyehara (Hawaii News Now TV Anchor) has started a GoFundMe drive for Dr. Eddie. You may leave words of encouragement at this site as well.
