Welcome to Waing Waing’s CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Also, some folks have asked how they can help, and this site will help coordinate some of the ways in which people can provide the support we need. We appreciate everybody’s caring support!
For those who need a general summary, Waing Waing was diagnosed with Stage 1b breast cancer at the end of October. Drs say the prognosis looks good with an aggressive treatment plan. In mid-December, Waing Waing started her first round of chemo, and it repeats every three weeks for six rounds. Then, she will have surgery, radiation and hormone therapy later in the year.
The side-effects of chemo are hardest during the first 1-2 weeks after the infusions, and then Waing Waing starts to feel better for about a week right before having the next round. We’ll keep you updated as we can.
Thank you for visiting and supporting. Waing Waing & Matias
