While recovering from breast reconstruction surgery due to breast cancer Alyssa decided to really pursue why her stomach was bothering her, and had been for quite some time. Over several weeks and many tests she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This cancer was completely separate from the breast cancer and had already spread to liver and lymph nodes. Being the fighter that Alyssa is she has started on a course of chemotherapy treatments that will run through the first of October. Welcome to our CaringBridge website.
