Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
This site is dedicated to Audrey Pacholski Kintzi. She is in need of some prayers, positive attitudes and virtual hugs! Some of you are aware of the fact that Audrey has been dealing with some health problems. About six months ago, doctors found a mass/tumor in her brain/optic chiasm. Unfortunately, that mass was a tiny part of the problem. On Thursday, April 21, Audrey was diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer and found out that it had spread to her stomach lining, lungs and lymph nodes. On Thursday April 28th, Audrey went in to have a port put in for her chemotherapy which will start Wednesday, May 6th. She will undergo 9 rounds or 27 weeks of chemotherapy to try and shrink the cancer as much as possible before scheduling surgery.
Not being able to connect in person with Audrey's massive network and getting positive energy, hugs and well wishes in person is making this difficult situation much more difficult! The timeframe that Audrey and Ron are dealing with along with the limitations in our ability to connect because of COVID 19 are causing us to get creative in how we connect and support Audrey! Audrey is the queen of connecting and creativity! So, for now, your expression of faith and love in both thoughts and prayers, would be greatly appreciated. As soon as there is a more physical way of showing love and support (e.g. meals, grocery shopping, margaritas, . . . etc) we will let you all know!
We appreciate you stopping by Audrey's Caring Bridge Site! As the site title indicates Audrey will definitely "get by with a little help from her friends!" Gather your friends and prayer warriors, spread the word, send messages of hope and encouragement and lots of prayers and we will help pray Audrey, Ron and family through! Audrey has always been our #1 champion of positive attitude, support, compassion, generosity and thoughtfulness! We will give her our best medicine - the same positive attitude, generosity, kind words, thoughts and prayers back!! Stop back often to check in on Audrey, Ron and family and see the latest progress in this journey! God bless you!
