In June 2015 mom was told she endometrium cancer. June 28th she had a DaVinci Hysterectomy. 6 weeks later she started chemotherapy and in October that year she started radiation, she underwent a total of 6 rounds of chemo and 30 rounds of radiation. By the end of the year she was declared cancer free! Praise God! 

In September 2016, her liver enzymes were extremely elevated so they did a CT scan and found a 6 inch tumor on her liver. In October mom began her second battle with cancer. They did a biopsy of her tumor and it was her endometrium metastasized on her liver. She then completed 4 rounds of chemo. Her CT scan showed the tumor had shrunk but not disappeared.

In February 2017, we went in for her follow up. Mom's speech had started to slur, and she was struggling to complete sentences. They ordered an MRI of her brain and found that she "too many" to count lesions on her brain. This began her third battle with cancer. The doctors prescribed a steroid to combat the swelling. We met with her radiation oncologist and she has began her 10 rounds of whole brain radiation.
