On March 12, 2021 Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 primary peritoneal carcinoma (ovarian cancer). We discussed with the doctor the best options to treat it and decided chemotherapy. She will begin her chemo treatments of carboplatin and pacltaxel on April 7. It will consist of 6 cycles, 3 weeks for each cycle. She will receive a low dose each week for the three weeks instead of one large dose every three weeks.
Luckily, Mom is not feeling a lot symptoms but it appears the cancer has spread. We know she is strong and in great health with a positive attitude! She will muscle through this with help and prayers from you. We will keep you posted on her progress. Thank you for your concern and prayers. Love to all - the Pieranunzi Family
