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.
On June 27th Tracey was called back in for some extra pictures after a Mammogram earlier that month. By the end of that day she had a needle biopsy scheduled. The biopsy, done that Friday, showed that she has invasive mixed carcinoma, both lobular and ductal. The cancer is both estrogen and progesterone positive, as well as HER-2 positive. At this point, the doctors are talking about a lumpectomy, Chemo and radiation, but we will know more after the surgery on the 15th. Her prognosis is excellent, but this will be a hard road. If you would like to send Tracey a note of encouragement you can at: The Rev. Canon Tracey Russell, 433 Ella Street, Pittsburgh PA, 15224. Thank you!
