Most of Audra's friends and family know her as a fierce competitor on the tennis court. This past June, Audra met her toughest opponent yet.....Ovarian Cancer. Shortly after the diagnosis, Audra was quickly scheduled for debulking surgery on July 6th as testing revealed the cancer had spread.  The surgery was quite extensive, but Audra came through like a champ. After pre surgery testing, surgery, and  pathology results, her doctor determined the Ovarian Cancer to be stage 3C. This will be a tough fight.....6 rounds of chemo ahead, spread apart by 3 weeks. Additionally, she has had genetic testing which will help guide  possible future course of treatment as needed.  She has completed her second round of chemo, which comes with hair loss, bone pain, nausea, and fatigue. Her four kids, Joshua, Addison, Haley, and Dylan, have been by her side helping out at home. One or more of them are with her at home, at medical appointments, taking care of the dogs, and running to the grocery store.  Audra remains optimistic, despite some very tough weeks, and is keeping her eye on the end game......getting back on the court!
