Jennifer Burford Jennifer's Journey

First post: Dec 14, 2018 Latest post: Feb 24, 2019

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. Thank you for visiting.

Jennifer has contracted a rare and fast-acting cancer called Merkel Cell Carcinoma. The disease is a form of skin cancer, also known as Neuroendocrine Carcinoma. She has had one surgery to remove a fairly large tumor and has had a PET scan, MRI and numerous other types of CT scans and mammograms to determine if the cancer has spread and, if so, where in her body the disease has migrated or is migrating to. Jennifer has already undergone 3 biopsies, and will have 3 more done on Thursday, December 6. She will also meet with her surgeon and oncologist on Thursday. The doctors will discuss Jennifer's pathology reports and develop a treatment plan that will include additional surgery, chemo therapy, radiation therapy or a combination thereof.

Please keep Jennifer and her family in your prayers. I will post updates on Jennifer's condition as I receive new information.
