Treva Jean's Journey

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. For those that do not know, Treva had a full hysterectomy in 2013 with Stage 1A Grade 1 endometrial adenocarcinoma. Everything was fine for years, until September 2017.....Treva was admitted inpatient to Aurora Hospital for Pneumonia. She has had shortness of breath for a few months now; switching her asthma medications and other small tests did not seem to be helping. They finally decided to do a chest X-ray while she was at her Dr appointment and that is when they saw "spots" on her lung with minimal right lung function. After admitting, several other tests were ran and then a CT scan was done. The scan showed a large amount of fluid had filled her right lung. After reading the scan it was concluded that she had some fluid in her upper abdomen as well. The next CT scan showed 2 large masses in the abdomen along with fluid plus the lung fluid. In the meantime, they had tested her blood for a cancer marker and the one marker that came back high was the endometrial from 2013. This of course was very shocking to all of us as we assumed that we would never have to deal with that cancer again as her "lady parts" had been removed. Well, recurrences can happen, and in this situation, the cancer cells decided to reattach to new locations, which is called metastatic recurrence. Now that we have a diagnosis and treatment plan set in place, Treva is ready to conquer this with all she has and has a super positive attitude about all of this. Stay tuned and follow along if you wish, and questions are welcomed. We will be updating shortly what her treatment plan will be and how you can help.
