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. Thank you for visiting.

I had my first visit with  gynecological oncologist, Dr. Lori Spoozak at the KU Cancer Center yesterday 4/26/17.  She was most thorough and complete in  her examination and information gathering and I am so happy to have her heading my treatment team.  The next step is to have a biopsy to ensure that I do in fact have ovarian cancer and not something else.  That is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2nd at the KU Hospital.  It will take 2 weeks to make the final determination of results and ensure that I qualify for participation in a clinical trial of a new med.  Once the type of cancer has been verified, the chemo with or without the trial med, will begin.   I also have an appointment with a genetic counselor to see if DNA testing is needed  for BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic mutations.  If there is sufficient evidence of need and my test results are positive, it has health risk implications for my children and sibs.   Keep the prayers going as I see evidences of God's oversight each and every day.  Thank you, each one for your support.
