Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Her journey began with a simple visit to the doctor in February 2018. Michelle had been bothered with persistent back pain and felt she should address the problem. Gallbladder problems were originally thought to be the issue. Thankfully, the surgeon was thorough. Heartbreaking news came after testing; a tumor on the pancreas was detected and confirmed malignant. Pancreatic cancer is the cause of her back pain. Surgery is not yet an option, and Michelle would need chemotherapy as soon as possible to reduce the tumor. By mid March, she and Gary with Michael and Matthew have worked with her medical team to give her the best opportunity to heal.
We appreciate your prayer, support and words of hope and encouragement. We want more than anything to speak with each of you, but of course, this illness has come quickly. Since we aren't able to reach everyone individually, we will use this website to keep our loved ones well informed on Michelle's journey as it unfolds. Your outreach of prayer and love are truly needed and appreciated.
