Carol is a daughter a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a friend.  
She’s always been a fighter but since the first time in 2018 when the words “cancer” came into our world, she’s had to fight even harder.
Carol has been on a roller coaster of treatments, ringing bells, having to hear “it’s back” and figuring out the best path medically with treatments, radiation and chemo. 
We’ve been facing the unknown bravely with tears of joy, tears of sorrow, and with hope and faith.   All along Carol has had an incredible support system complete with “Chemo Party Themes” to keep her hopes high and add some humor to this sometimes melancholy journey. 
Carol’s initial diagnosis was serous endometrial cancer in 2018 after undergoing treatment and surgery to remove cancer, she was in remission and rang the bell at the Avera Cancer Center.
But her remission was short-lived. 
In 2020 we got the news once again that cancer was back but had spread to her lungs and her fight resumed once again!  
Carol has had every kind of treatment from chemo and radiation to immunotherapy, and tons of pills.  All to redo chemo and radiation multiple times.
And now we start chemo yet again with hope and faith.
 As a family, we’re praying for Carol to get a spot in a trial to create a full-on offensive to mitigate the cancer in her body. 
We’re asking for prayers and hope that her cancer stops growing and for our beloved Carol to keep fighting.  
With the ongoing commitment and desire to keep everyone updated on Carol's journey we started this Caring Bridge site as it will be the best method to keep everyone on the same page.
