Welcome to Letty’s CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.

In September 2020, Letty started feeling short of breath and very ill. She was initially diagnosed with pneumonia, but after a couple of weeks of strong antibiotics, her health continued to deteriorate. In mid October, a CAT scan was performed and a large mass highly suspicious for cancer was identified in her right lung. She was then referred for a PET scan and bronchoscopy with lung biopsies for the following week. The PET scan identified the lung mass as well as additional areas of potential cancer in her adrenal glands, hips, thighs, and lymph nodes. Results of the lung and lymph node biopsies confirmed metastatic stage 4 lung cancer on October 26th, 2020.

Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts during this difficult time. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Letty and her family with expenses on her cancer journey. If you are interested in donating, please visit the site below.
