On the last week of March, 2017, Mary went to the clinic to get a lump (that was assumed to be a fibroid) checked out. From there an ultrasound was scheduled and then a hysterectomy suggested. The hysterectomy was scheduled on April 3rd, however after seeing some concerning spots with the scope the surgery was canceled and an appointment at Rochester was scheduled. After much testing it was determined and diagnosed that mom has Ovarian cancer. April 21, she endured a 7 hour surgery to remove all cancer that could be seen. Another surgery on May 5th was necessary to remove adhesions on the small colon and correct a twisted bowel that had been preventing the bowels from working properly. Mary continued to heal and gain strength in Rochester until May 14 in order to get ready to begin chemo treatments soon. This has been an incredibly difficult time for all yet her amazing team in Rochester is very positive and we are moving forward as quickly as we can. THANK YOU to all who have offered your support and love over the past weeks. It is a HUGE part of what helps us each day! Love to all!
