On Wednesday, January 29, 2020 my mom was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer.
She caught the flu in early December, but never quite recovered. Since the holidays, she has been fighting debilitating fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, and nausea. On Tuesday, January 21, she was sent to the ER for dangerously low sodium, where an x-ray and CT revealed a spot on her lungs that appeared suspicious. After a biopsy on Monday, she was diagnosed on Wednesday, with an MRI on Thursday confirming it as extensive.
Needless to say, we are shocked and devastated, but hopeful and ready to fight. Because we need to focus 100% on her and her treatment, we are using this page to keep family and friends updated in one place.
She’s the strongest woman I know, but please continue to pray for her so we can all help her fight.
