Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Linda went to the ER right before Thanksgiving with extreme hip pain only to find out she had lesions on her hip bone and a mass in her lungs. She was soon diagnosed with stage 4 non-small cell Adenocarcinoma lung cancer. We have since learned that the cancer has spread to her hip, lymph nodes, and started to spread to her brain. She has completed 2 rounds of radiation, which seems to have reduced the spots on her brain but not worked so well on her hip. We are hoping her body will respond well to chemo treatments to try to slow the cancer down. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
