On Monday, August 29th Jeff went to the doctor because he had noticed some swelling in his body and was having some challenges breathing. On Tuesday, August 30th he went in for a CT scan. Later that afternoon the doctor called to let him know he had a mass the size of a peach in his chest. This mass is resting up against one of his veins in his heart, which is what is causing the severe swelling.
Jeff and Helen are met with a thoracic oncologist/surgeon on Thursday, September 1st to gather more information and prepare to have the mass biopsied. The results of the biopsy will dictate the path of his next steps and treatment options.
Please keep Jeff, Helen and Nick in your thoughts and prayers.
