In October 2018, my mom, Angie Stallings, decided to visit a doctor due to experiencing some leg pain. They thought it was just an injured muscle of some sort and sent her to physical therapy. Physical therapy did not end up helping and the pain was increasing. After many months of pain and doctor visits, a doctor at Duke referred her for a PET scan that revealed 5 masses of varying sizes in her left leg. She was then referred for a biopsy. On August 9th, the doctor called to confirm that the mass where the biopsy had been conducted was cancerous. On Tuesday, August 20th, my beautiful mother was diagnosed with epithelioid sarcoma.
After many tests, the diagnosis was specified to epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE), a very rare form of sarcoma.
We are trusting God through this journey! He is able!
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
