Veronica’s Story

My name is Naomi Field, and I have been given permission by Veronica's Mom, Becky (Claire) Elderbroom, to maintain her page, since she is now unable. Thank you on behalf of all Veronica's family for your care and support!

Please feel free to visit the guestbook and leave a note. Any photos may be sent to my email address.

Veronica was first diagnosed with cancer about 3 years ago. Since then, she has had 3 relapses, and is currently in serious condition. The tumor has grown back and she has been experiencing increased pain, and has been recieving morphine to help maintain her comfort level. See the journal for more information.
