On June 1st, Kelli woke up with cramps and abdominal pain.  The pain increased steadily for several days until it was clear something was wrong.  After numerous tests and procedures, Kelli had an exploratory laparoscopic  surgery.  The biopsies revealed cancer.  A week later, Kelli had a total hysterectomy, which confirmed the cancer diagnosis.  The type of cancer is endometrial.  The cancer has been described as aggressive and has spread to her lungs and 3 lymph nodes.  It is considered Stage 4.  This sounds very scary, but it is treatable.   We don't know the extent of the treatment or how long it will take, we only know we will beat it.  Kelli is young, strong, and never backs away from a fight.  
Everyone knows how active and social Kelli is, it has been very hard for her to lay around so much.  She misses all of her friends and of course her bootcamp workouts.  We are very thankful for all of the visitors and help with meals.  We have been overwhelmed by all the support.  I am sure we will be needing even more in the future.  
We are all very scared but confident that Kelli is strong and determined.  
We got this.
