Welcome to Erin Davis's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Erin started showing signs that something was seriously not right during the last week of March in 2020 (she had previously complained about sinus headaches off and on, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary). Ray took her to her primary care physician on April 1st. Because of the closings due to COVID, Erin was able to get an MRI for that same day. That evening, Ray received a call that Erin had a mass, and it did not look good. On April 2nd, Erin and Ray met with a Neurosurgeon who recommended surgery. Another MRI was ordered for Friday, April 3rd. Erin had brain surgery on Monday, April 6th for what was determined to be a frontal lobe mass. The surgery was considered a success as most of the mass was removed. However, a few weeks later in a follow-up visit with the Neurosurgeon, it was explained to Erin and Ray that the biopsy revealed a grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Erin spent the summer going through radiation and chemotherapy. She has a team of doctors in Atlanta and at Duke University. She continues to receive various treatments.
