Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Shannon is an amazing mother of two boys, a sister, and a friend. Shannon is also a nurse who spends her time away from her family caring for others. We are all her friends and family but I wanted to summarize the last few months, and have a place where updates on her health can be found, words of encouragement can be left and we can all remind Shannon how much we love her.
Shannon was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer in February. During this short battle so far Shannon has endured 3 rounds of chemo, 2 surgeries, DVTs in both legs, a Pulmonary embolus, several hospital stays and countless hours sitting at Dr. offices. . During her 2nd surgery last month it was a shock that we learned her cancer has spread and is now Stage 4. Shannon will be undergoing surgery next week and will have a long hospital stay and recovery. We decided that the best way to get the word out to everyone that cares is to start this page. We will be updating this for Shannon over the next few weeks. Shannon has asked that she not have visitors during this next hospital stay but we know she will enjoy this forum to see how much we are thinking of her.
