Thank you! The Peters family

well it all began this summer with a lump on the butt.  we started seeing a chiropractor and when we didn't get any better we went to an orthopedic doctor who said it was an si injury and to start physical therapy. we did and the therapist after a few weeks said it just wasn't feeling like muscle so we did an mri and that is when we found IT. that is when they referred us to OSF. Dr. Sauder (her diabetes doctor) was able to get us in to see Dr. Al ( her oncologist) and we did some more test and saw a surgeon and on Wednesday the 25 of November 2009 Cora had her first surgery. she was going to have a port put in and a biopsy of the lump and a bone marrow test but she started to bleed and so they had to only do the biopsy.  she was very sick..  well on Tuesday December 1st Cora went in for her second surgery where they put in her port and did the bone marrow test and also had to go in and biopsy the lung. it was a few days after that when we found out Cora had synovial sarcoma and she would undergo chemo radiation and then another surgery. on DEC 5th. Cora had her first chemo. please follow our journey and sign our guestbook( we look forward to these). we will continue to praise Jesus and trust him in this trial in our family's life.
