In May, 2018 doctors found two gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) on my liver and started me on an oral medication called Gleevec, a targeted drug that will hopefully shrink the tumors enough for them to be surgically removed. When they first discovered them the tumors were at stage four and covered 75% of my liver. We're hoping and praying that in 12 months the tumors will shrink by half and I will only lose 25% of my liver. I am in good hands at the Winship Cancer Center in Atlanta and in good spirits, surrounded by a wonderful support system.
