Cecilia’s Story

Welcome to Cecilia's CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated.

Dear family and friends,

We set this site up on behalf of our Mom – Cecilia Preciado Burciaga.

Early in August, Cecilia was diagnosed with pneumonia. This diagnosis and subsequent x-ray resulted in a CT-scan which revealed three things in her left lung: one mass, one very swollen lymph node, and fluid. Since then, she has had multiple follow-ups including a biopsy - which revealed a cancerous malignancy.She was discharged to our home in Menlo Park and will be staying with us for as long as necessary.

We will be speaking to the doctors regularly will update you as soon as we hear and have a moment. We may, occasionally, have close family friends contact you or update this site as we get more information.

Unfortunately, phone calls and visits are difficult as this time - her ability to speak is hindered by her ability to sustain conversations beyond a few words. We read her emails, cards, letters, and Facebook posts but we can’t promise a response given her energy level.

Until we have a better sense of her health, your prayers and thoughts are all that we ask for.

Rebeca Burciaga y Toño Burciaga
