Journal entry by Megan Rodriguez

Hello and welcome to our family Caring Bridge website. We are using this platform to keep friends and family updated as we travel through my moms journey.                  

So here’s her story...                                                  Mid- December of 2020 my mother was having stomach problems. She saw many doctors trying to figure out the cause of all the pain and discomfort. On February 5th she had a scan done that showed some abnormalities. The doctor did more testing. On February 9th the doctor told told us that my mother has Stage 4 Stomach Cancer. The doctors told us that this is a fast and aggressive cancer. Next week, February 15th she will have her port put in her chest and by the end of the week she will have completed her first round of chemotherapy .

 Mom remains hopeful that the treatment will be effective and is extremely grateful for the wonderful support she has received from friends, family and colleagues. If you know my mom then you know she is a strong woman with and even stronger faith in God. 

We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we go through this journey with my mom. 

Love from Her Children,
Megan & Justin
