In April, Angie was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer after not feeling well for about five weeks. Like a trooper, she did six rounds of chemo throughout the summer. Scans were showing improvements. On September 18, Angie and Andrew went to a clinic in Iowa City that specializes in just this type of cancer. There, they learned that she has a very rare type of small cell neuroendocrine cancer. There have been only 120 cases in the last 20 years. With it being so rare, there is no real clear path as to how best to slow it down. The plan is to begin immunotherapy at Sanford in Sioux Falls. Her records have also been sent to Mayo. Our hope is that the more oncologists that know about her case, the better chance we have of finding the best option for her. In the meantime, we pray and trust, and pray and trust, and pray and trust in God's peace, strength, and healing.
