Welcome to Maureen Thielen's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place as Maureen has recently been diagnosed with stage four cancer in her kidney and lung regions. Stage four indicates that the cancer is located in more than one area of the body. Currently, she is meeting with doctors at the Mayo Clinic and the Unversity of Minnesota Medical Center to further diagnose her condition and create a treatment plan best suited for her needs. We will do our best to keep all of you updated as we know more information. Maureen appreciates your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
