Kris began her journey in June 2016 when she was admitted to Elkhart Hospital for pancreatitis. She returned to the hospital 3 more times in a 1 month period for reoccurring pancreatic attacks. Her 3rd visit she was rushed to IU Indy where they placed her on a feeding tube to try and heal the pancreas. She continued on the feeding tube for 45 days, when it was removed she was then scheduled for a pancreatic biopsy. It was then that they diagnosed her with pancreatic cancer ( August 17th). While the team of doctors met to come up with a medical plan she had a nerve block procedure to help with the pain. On August 29th Dr. Kio at IU Goshen Center for Cancer diagnosed her with Stage 4 pancreatic & liver cancer.
