On August 12, 2016, Janet was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of lymphoma, Angioimmunoblastic T Cell Lymphoma. Because this cancer is aggressive, it is already advanced. This began in June with what seemed to be a normal viral infection. Symptoms worsened over the next several weeks and by July, she was admitted to the hospital and that's when they discovered the lymphoma. We are working quickly with an Oncologist to begin chemotherapy on Tuesday, August 23.
We welcome and appreciate all of your prayers, love, support and advice. This is all new to us and I'm sure many of you have words of wisdom and encouragement. If you know my mom, you know she's a fighter!
We will continue to post updates to keep everyone informed. Thank you!
