In September of 2016, my mom, Nancy Jones, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She lives in Los Angeles. Although an initial lumpectomy seemed successful, several lymph nodes were removed that showed the cancer was already spreading. Since her cancer was determined to be "triple negative" her treatment outcomes were less optimistic from the beginning, but she still felt relatively well for a long time. Over the past year, she has endured eight different regimens of chemotherapy. (Her doctor let me know that most triple negative patients do not survive more than 2 or 3). 

Mom completed nine types of chemotherapy treatment before Feb. 2018, and her oncologist has said there is nothing left medically to help. Her final scan showed many new lesions in her liver. The mental and emotional effects of these intense treatments have certainly taken their toll, let alone the physical effects, as her body is in rapid decline with increased pain. In-home hospice care was put in place on March 15th, with planned nurse visits at 2x per week. Her husband, who suffers from physical and mental disabilities is currently her round-the-clock caregiver.

Thank you for your prayers and words of support... they mean so much. We are thankful most of all that mom is a believer in Jesus Christ and that she has eternal hope! We know her pain will soon be completely gone, and she will be free from earthly sorrow. Hallelujah!
