Katherine was diagnosed with Stage IV colorectal cancer on March 21, 2017. She began experiencing stomach issues in the Fall of 2016. Her gastroenterologist recommended probiotics and the removal of dairy from her diet. These methods proved unsuccessful and he recommended a colonoscopy, just as a precaution. During the exam, the doctors identified a malignant tumor. After analyzing the tumor, it was evident that it had spread through the lymph nodes into the liver and lungs. After several consultations, we met with Dr. Overman, an oncologist at MD Anderson, who recommended swift action in controlling and treating the tumor. Her chemotherapy treatment began on March 30th at MD Anderson in Houston, TX.
Katherine is in good spirits and tackling this with optimism and a fighting attitude.
