You wouldn’t guess it from the glowing photo above, but our family received some bad news recently: Karen’s cancer has returned. She asked me to share her news with you all.
She fought endometrial cancer with a hysterectomy, radiation and chemo 2.5 years ago.
Sadly, she had some symptoms a few weeks ago that took her back to the doctor and an MRI uncovered a mass the size of an orange in her pelvis. Two lymph nodes are also cancerous as well. I spent Sunday night in the emergency room with her due to some severe back pain.
This morning she’s in a very serious surgery to remove the three spots, and if all goes well she’ll be in the hospital for about a week. When she has recovered from surgery, hopefully about 6 weeks from now, she’ll undergo 6 more weeks of intensive radiation and likely a bit of chemo again. She is in very good hands at the University of Virginia.
Karen is an incredibly strong and positive woman, so we are all hoping for the best.
Please send all the positive vibes you can muster
