Renee began this journey in 2014 when she was diagnosed
with Stage 4 breast cancer. She went to her general doctor for approval of
cataract surgery when she told her doctor about the lump near her clavicle.  The
lump was biopsied and it with another lump in her breast were identified as
breast cancer. She has since undergone two rounds of chemotherapy, a mastectomy
and radiation. The cancer is very fast growing and aggressive as it returned
within 6 months from her first round of chemo and came back within 8 weeks after
a pre-radiation scan showed no cancer in her body.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2016, it was
observed she was unable to open her eye lids, developed slowness to her logic
processing skills, and was falling. She was rushed to the ER and it was determined
the cancer had spread to a tumor on her brain stem. The doctors immediately placed
a shunt in her brain to help alleviate the pressure from the swelling in her
head caused by the tumor. Her awareness and eye lid function returned. She made
the decision with her family to have the tumor removed on the following Tuesday
November 29th. Every day since then Renee is on the path for her
return to health which will include systemic chemotherapy treatments. She is a
survivor and fighter and has many friends and family supporting her. This page
