This is the amazing photo collage I received yesterday from my brother Roger, his wife Jill & their daughter Amanda. They ordered these Team Patty T-shirts , which makes me feel so loved & supported

In April 2020, I was diagnosed with Stage IIIC ovarian high grade serous carcinoma. In early May, I began chemotherapy and had 3 treatments. I no longer needed to highlight my hair, but lost my curls & all hair.  
In July, I had a hysterectomy and was in the hospital several days longer than anticipated as I needed a blood transfusion.  
In the fall, I had 3 more chemotherapy treatments and my last treatment was in October, 2020. 
I then started the University of Wisconsin Clinical Trial, followed by one in Chicago - neither of which bore any fruit. 
In early January 2021, my CT scan revealed a recurrence of cancer & I have several masses. It is not curable.  Within a month, the CT scans showed the masses are growing, which is causing significant pain.  
I want to recognize all the ways people have & continue to support me on this journey. If you know me, you know it's so much easier for me to give help rather than be the recipient, I am learning.

I went to heaven on January 15th, 2021. I want to thank everyone for their support during this time. If you want to reach out to her sons or husband, feel free to do so as I'm sure the help and support will be appreciated.
