Barb was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in December of 2015. She underwent a total hysterectomy before the end of the 2015. In the beginning of 2016 she successfully completed 6 weeks of daily radiation.  Since that time she has had follow up visits with her gynecologic oncologist every 3 months which have all been uneventful.  In the last 6 weeks she has had mouth/tooth/lip pain and numbness that has gotten progressively worse. This has also been accompanied by a growth in her mouth.  Recent tests have revealed that the cancer has come back in both her lungs and jaw bone. She will starting a journey of chemotherapy and radiation to beat this rare malignancy. It is our hope that as you think of her and pray, you will be able to get all updates related to her care and her journey on this site.
