Welcome to Kelsey's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.  Dan will be the primary author of posts, with Kelsey's watchful eye as editor in chief. 

Fall 2017:
In September they found a Lymph node they didn't like on a routine MRI (proactive screening)
In October we had the lymph node removed and waited for an answer on what it could be.  On October 24th Kelsey received a phone call to inform her that she has Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALK Positive).
In November we underwent fertility preservation, second opinions, and likely beginning chemo.
In December we had Christmas, Chemo and a lot of time with family and friends.
In 2018 we take each day with thanks, and hope for the future. Chemo is on a 21 day rotation through March. 

This website is not intended to keep people away from talking with us directly, but more a way to update the world with a few words when we can. Please feel free to let Kelsey know you're thinking of her any way you like - we are so blessed by our friends and family. We cherish your prayers, and support as we take on the adventure of beating lymphoma - with all of it's twists and turns.
