Pam grew up in Minot, ND where she met her husband Robb. They now reside in the Minneapolis, MN metro area. They have 2 beautiful daughters, Haley (23) and Hayden (5). The couple has been married for more than 29 years, but the last year or so has proven to have been the most challenging yet. After a biopsy in May of 2015, Pam was diagnosed with “Invasive Lobular Carcinoma” A CT scan revealed that she had 2 cancerous tumors in her right breast. One of the tumors was large (5.75 CM) and considered an aggressive form. Since then Pam has went through 6 months of chemo therapy, 2 major surgeries, 33 radiation treatments and has been hospitalized 3 times. The last hospitalization came in July as a result of complications related to an outpatient surgery. Many tests in the ER revealed a new wrinkle… severe heart failure as a side effect of the chemo therapy she had received over a year ago. The jury is still out on the prognosis for her heart, but needless to say Pam has been and still is in a difficult fight for survival.
