Rachel’s Story

Hello Family and Friends,

We really don't know where to begin this story so we have decided to just start where we are at today.  Rachel has been diagnosed with a new brain tumor and will begin radiation treatments today, October 28th.  She will finish sometime mid December and then begin follow up appts with her oncology team.  We have been blessed by a fantastic team of doctors as well as a super
support team (all of you!)

We simply ask you for your prayers at this time.  Please feel free to leave Rachel messages of encouragement here as well.  I am not too technology savvy so it may take a bit for me to load any photos.  

One last note....We haven't found much to smile about these past months but when you find opportunities for laughter one must take them...when we found out today that she has a 5 hour clinic visit on Thursday, my comment and email back to our doctor was, "5 HOURS!!!  Some women have babies faster then that" (ok maybe not all women but some).  It made Rachel smile and even gigle just a bit....it was so worth it!!       

Love,
The Woell Family
