Welcome to Shellie's CaringBridge website. I am honored to be asked by Shellie to help coordinate this site to keep family and friends updated and informed in one place.
In August, 2021, Shellie discovered a lump on her left breast. Over the course of a couple of weeks, the lump grew larger, causing pain and discomfort. Upon seeing a gynecologist, she was immediately sent for an ultrasound, which revealed a suspicious mass, presenting like cancer. She was quickly sent for a biopsy and a mammogram.
On September 22, she learned the mass was indeed cancer and was diagnosed with Metastatic Carcinoma. As you can imagine, this was shocking news to Shellie, her family and close friends .
She has begun the process of doctors visits and research, however, the complete picture is yet to be seen as she's waiting on test results. Therefore the treatment plan is still unknown. She has a medical team here in Albuquerque but may seek a second opinion out of state.
Shellie is in good spirits, feels hopeful about her future, and plans to kick Cancer's butt!
She appreciates your support, words of hope and encouragement and of course, your prayers. Shellie's focus now is on her health, so please understand if she does not reply to your messages, texts and phone calls during this time.
Updates will posted as often as possible. Thank you for visiting.
