Kelley’s Story

Site created on February 26, 2019

Originally diagnosed with Stage 2 Uterine Sarcoma cancer in January 2019 after having a 12cm tumor surgically removed. Subsequently in February 2019, the doctors found that it had spread to lungs. So now I guess I am unofficially diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic Uterine Carcinosarcoma. My first round of treatment - 6 rounds of chemo - didn't quite get it all, so now hopefully starting off 2020 with a second round of treatment. Wish me luck in kickins some cancer butt with the support of my family, friends and team of doctors and nurses!
