Welcome to our CaringBridge website. For those of you who may be just hearing mom's news, she was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer on May 15, 2018 and has been visiting doctors and having tests since. We are so blessed to have so many sweet friends checking on mom and thought this might be good place to share information and prayer requests/needs with mom's prayer warriors. Below is the first post mom shared about her cancer on Facebook.
"I found out recently that I have a rare form of pancreatic cancer (neuroendocrine tumor) that has metastasized to my liver. The tumor produces insulin that causes me to have very low blood sugar. The doctors plan to stabilize the cancer with oral chemo medication and then remove the tumor (the size of a large orange) on my pancreas in mid July. Unfortunately, they will not be able to remove the tumors in the liver, but hope to manage them once the host tumor is removed. I have an incredible team of doctors, including the Great Physician, Dr. Jesus! If you get a chance, will you say a little prayer for my family? Thank you!"
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
