In February 2014 Cindy was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. For the next two years she received chemo injections and responded favorably without progression of the cancer. In 2016 she started to experience side effects of the therapy including necrosis of the jaw, which was the first significant set back. Following that, she started suffering from pain related to tumors throughout her lower back. In November she had emergency surgery to relieve pain and pressure in her lower body. After her surgery she began healing, however pain persisted and scans showed the tumors had progressed. Her treatment plan changed and Cindy began receiving intensive chemotherapy in March of 2017. As of the end of May, Cindy has completed her last of six chemotherapy treatments and continues to recover from the intensive effects of the treatment. As of now we are awaiting scan results and further information on the chemotherapy results. As Cindy recovers from her treatment we are asking for support from family and friends.
