Welcome to Susie's 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.
On December 13th, 2017, Susie went to the emergency room with terrible pain in her stomach and back. Medical staff rushed to get her a CT scan, and her doctor returned, in tears, to tell her that imaging had revealed pancreatic cancer, and that it had spread throughout her abdomen and around her liver.
We will add more information about her recommended treatment as Susie has a chance to meet with her oncology team, but for now it's safe to say that things probably look bad.
Short term disability income will not be adequate to meet Susie's living expenses and the additional expenses she will have during her medical care, and so it's very urgent to start raising as much money as possible to support her during her treatments. You can do this on her GoFundMe page, here: https://www.gofundme.com/susies-angels
Our fundraising goal is $22,000, to cover medical out-of-pocket amounts and disability income shortfalls. Our dear hope is that we can reduce her financial worries during this terrible time, so that she can concentrate on her treatment.
We believe that in times of great need the greatest source of hope and healing is the love of family and friends. Thank you profoundly for your love and generosity!
