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. I thought I was a happy, healthy 54 year old woman living a happy, healthy lifestyle. What I thought were symptoms of hormone changes due to perimenopause led me to schedule a doctor appointment on September 25th, 2017. A cervical biopsy revealed the presence of an invasive cancer. A PET and an MRI were then scheduled. I was devastated by the results. The scans show a large cervical and uterine tumor along with metastasis to lymph nodes in the pelvic ,, left axillary, and clavicular region. I saw three doctors, all who painted bleak pictures. The news was hard to hear and horrible. Thankfully Dr. Check Svendsen helped to maintain hope. I am blessed to have a friend, Dr. Maryella Loman who researched and found the Envita Clinic in Scottsdale AZ. Envita is considered one of the top integrative medical centers in the country. They specialize in innovative and individualized treatment modalities. They use the best in advanced natural based therapies and state of the art conventional medicine. They have experience working with the most complicated cases of cancer and chronic diseases. So here we are in Scottsdale, AZ and have entered into treatment. We are so much more hopeful now that we have met with the Envita team and Dr. Gordon Grado, the radiologist. Thank you for checking in on our site. Rick and I will keep you updated as often as possible. We see miracles happening all around us. We are blessed to have so many friends and family that care about us.
