Lalo Barron Lalo's Battle

First post: Jun 8, 2020 Latest post: Aug 4, 2020
Due to some worsening back pain, Lalo was sent for a CT Scan of his Chest, Abdomen, and Pelvis on May 7, 2020. Unfortunately those scans showed that Lalo had a couple of cancerous lesions located in his lungs and a number of cancerous lesions in the spine. Those spinal lesions have been contributing to the back pain he was experiencing. Based on the original scans and repeat PET/CT scans and MRIs on May 27 and May 29, the doctors have diagnosed Lalo with Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. As expected, this is a heavy hit to Lalo,  Teresa,  and the kids. The physicians are doing a good job balancing Lalo's pain and getting his back secured with a brace to increase his ability to continue his daily activities with a goal of going home from the hospital on June 8 or 9. Moving forward, Lalo's physicians will be combining some radiation to the effected areas for immediate relief followed by chemotherapy for more of a whole body approach. There are multiple treatments available pending Lalo's pathology results. These results will let the physicians know what the genetic make-up of the tumors are and help tailor a treatment specific for him. Lalo has an uncomfortable battle ahead of him and will need the support of this friends and family. Keep him and the family in your prayers.
