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.
As everyone that has met Jane knows, there are few people that compare to her beauty...inside and out! She is the first person to volunteer to help a person in need and is loving and caring to her very core. In March of this year, mom was fighting a bout of pneumonia and diverticulitis. When she went back in for a CT scan, they found a mass and diagnosed her with pancreatic cancer. The following months have been filled with chemo treatments and battles to overcome dehydration and diverticulitis and procedures to increase blood flow to the intestines and colon.
Always a fighter, mom has displayed amazing strength and grace as she faces this journey. Jane has always been the one caring for others and not being taken care of. She has yet to shed a tear for herself. When asked why she hasn't broken down under the strain, typical of a wonderful mom, she said, "I have to be strong for my family and I have peace because I know the Lord."
Even though she's not feeling up to having phone conversations or hosting visitors, the many cards and calls have brought her great comfort. She knows that she is blessed and loved by her wonderful friends and family. Never leaving her side, one of her children stays with her 24/7 to advocate for her and ensure she receives the very best treatment possible.
We will do our best to update this site on a regular basis and keep all those that love her up to date with her journey.
