What we thought was just a case of the flu turned out to change our lives. After getting blood work done because of a high fever that Shannon couldn’t shake, we were asked to go to the ER as the test results were concerning. A few hours after the ER visit Shannon was diagnosed with acute leukemia, started chemotherapy pills, was getting a bone marrow biopsy, and being transferred to the Kaiser Permanente Roseville oncology unit.
With all of the out-pouring of support and positive energy, we wanted to create a place to keep all of our family and friends updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Let’s keep Shannon Still Strong throughout this fight.
