UPDATE: March 1st, 2020: Thank you for visiting this site. Arm and shoulder pain in December has revealed that the transitional cell carcinoma cancer has resurfaced in several masses near Lowell's collarbone. Read the journal entries for details and updates
Lowell Hansen was diagnosed with Stage 4 carcinoma of the renal pelvis in August, 2016., at the young age of 76. He met his great Oncologist, John Schwerkoske, with MN Oncology. He is a perfect fit for Lowell.....straight forward with a great sense of humor! He started chemotherapy treatment in the beginning of September, for a 4 month plan of once a week. Our hope is that at the end of the 4th month treatment plan, that he would be a candidate for surgery to remove the right kidney and surrounding lymph nodes.
