Hello Friends and Family,
Today with all of the stress and strife we are all going through I get to share some AWESOME news. My mom spoke with her Dr. today and she is officially cancer FREE. I cannot believe just 90 days ago we were starting the new year and planning to have a great 2020 then we got the devastating news. Now 90 days later we, the world are in the middle of a global pandemic, cannot leave our homes, visit our friends, family, work vacation, etc but we got the best news ever. Mom has been doing great despite she is in a lot of pain still and has not been outside in 2 weeks but she is on the mend.

She will still need some chemo but the decision to put that off until this virus is under control as well as surgery to remove a node from her neck. Until then she will heal and get stronger.
My sister and brother continue to care for her and keep her entertained and I video chat daily.
She is in good spirits despite losing someone near and dear to her heart to this horrible virus😷. We all pray to get past this as quickly and safely as possible. The power of prayer is strong and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all the prayers you sent to our mom.

Be well, stay safe and healthy and love one another...

Barbara, Lisa, Michele, and Ron😍 🙌 🙏 🙋

P.S, Our mom is one strong fighter. She has been through hell and back and is still standing. She has a lot left to do and see and we are just over the moon ecstatic with today news. I had to add that!
