Beth is now in the process of many doctor appointments and visits.  At her most recent appointment on August 4, the doctor said that the type of cancer she is dealing with is called plasmacytoma, which involves plasma cells forming a tumor, in this case in her sternum.  The treatment for plasmacytoma is radiation, so surgery will not have to be performed.  We had been told that we would probably be dealing with sarcoma, so this is a bit of a change.

In the next week or two, Beth will be meeting with two oncologists to get information and scheduling.  More updates will follow.
