Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Susan.
Susan was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in January 2012. The cancer has spread to the bone marrow, secondary to the breast cancer.
Updates will be posted by Susan's children; Heather, Rachel, Julia, and Garrett.
Team Goens also includes Susan's husband, Roland. Please remember him in your prayers as well.
Susan had an abscessed tooth that was pressing on the root which had to be surgically removed. The oral surgeon found an infection in the jaw and did a biopsy. The biopsy tested for cancerous cells and Susan was referred to an oncologist. From there a series of tests took place over two weeks. The primary diagnosis being breast cancer with cancer of the bone marrow being the secondary diagnosis.
