Lisa’s Story

Lisa was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma in the fall 2010. She has gone through 2 liver resections totally over 20 hours of surgery. Her treatment has also included 4 different types of chemo and steriotactic radiation three times. Her cancer has comes back 5 times in 8 different tumors, but recently she has gone 14 months without a recurrence. After changing her diet to gluten free her severe chronic hives have gone away. Please keep Lisa in your prayers because it is working.

Latest Journal Update

Joy and relief

Lisa has been experiencing intense liver pain and chest pain so her bloodwork and scans were moved up from February. We spent Friday at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation with testing and  an appointment with her oncologist, Dr. Bassam Estfan. We have been blessed again by our loving God. Lisa's bloodwork was normal, her CA 19-9 went down to 24 and her other tumor marker went down as well. The CT scan of the abdomen showed no cancer. Her liver looks beautiful! We are very fortunate to have such a caring and compassionate oncologist, he truly cares about Lisa and our family. The pain can be attributed to scar tissue, fibromyalgia and chondritis,  which Lisa said she will take any day over cancer. Thank you for your continued prayers. 
Peace
David
