Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. On December 27th I found out I had a tumor in my lower right jaw larger than a golf ball. By January 7th I got the results of the biopsy and it was Sarcoma, which is a rare form of cancer-1%. It's also usually in younger people, in their arms, legs or torso, not their jaw. But mine's in an older woman's jaw which makes it even rarer. I am currently on the hunt for an oncology surgical dr. who specializes in Sarcomas in the jaw since mine is literally growing by the day. Please pray for 
   -quickly finding the best doctor 
   -surgery ASAP since it's growing so quickly

   -peace for the family
   -that it doesn't spread
   -pain management 
I will post more once I see the doctors. 
Much love,
