For all who know Lynn, we all know she is so much more than an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend; Lynn is the one that lights up the room, makes you smile, would give you the shirt off her back, warms your heart, makes you want to be a better person while making it all look so easy. Lynn, Todd (her husband of 9 years) and their two beautiful daughters Anna (7 years) and Pippa (4 years) had taken a family trip to Colorado in July 2017; when they got home, Lynn had some tests done and that is when they received the devastating news that Lynn was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer.  Nobody could believe how something so horrible could happen to such an amazing woman and family. We often replay the thought in our minds of “why?”  This turned Lynn and her family’s world upside down.  But if you know Lynn, you know she’s a fighter.  After six intense months of chemotherapy, Lynn and her family were told that Lynn was in remission.  After three months of trying to get back to some form of normalcy, Lynn and the family received the heart breaking news that the cancer had returned.  These upcoming months of chemotherapy will be debilitating to the family as Lynn will be admitted for three days into Roswell Park Cancer Institute to receive three different intense chemotherapies.  After the third chemo treatment, Lynn will be admitted back into Roswell Park Cancer Institute for four to six weeks for a bone marrow transplant.  She will be isolated from her family and friends during that time to allow her body to build itself back up.  After her discharge she will begin the long in-home recovery, to allow her body to slowly build her immunity.

     All of the chemotherapy treatments, extensive prescriptions, numerous procedures, Lynn’s inability to work since her 2017 diagnosis (and disability running out in January), Todd’s upcoming 2 month, partial paid, family medical leave of absence to care for his family, is starting to put a financial strain on this young and loving family. Lynn, Todd, Anna and Pippa deserve the world and we would greatly appreciate any monetary donations to help defray their expenses.  There are so many emotions that Lynn, Todd, Anna and Pippa are going through that some of us and hopefully none of us, will ever have to go through in our lives.  The financial stress and burden that accompany a family fighting cancer is overwhelming.  Please help keep the hope and strength alive for this family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your thoughts, prayers and generous donations.

After a second opinion from NYC and finishing her second cycle of immunotherapy, Lynn has had the most positive PET scan since she made her breif remission over a year ago. She will continue on the immunotherapy for another 2 cycles and PET scan again in February. Hopefully she will be eligible for the bone marrow transplant at that point. Lynn, Todd, Anna and Pippa are looking forward to the holidays with the great news and hoping for the best New Year possible. Thank you all for continued thoughts and prayers. Happy Holidays to all and their families.

Lynn’s third type of chemo has not proven effective. She is now trying an immunotherapy drug with hopes of being able to move into the bone marrow transplant. Lynn and Todd are also traveling to NYC in early November for a second opinion and possibly some clinical trials. A follow up PET scan will be in December to see if the immunotherapy is working. Thank you all so much for continued prayers and support.

Lynn's last Pet scan showed that the last round of chemo had no effect on the remaining cancer. She is now on another form of chemo with hopes that her levels will become low enough for the inevitable bone marrow transplant. Lynn, Todd and the girls are focusing on enjoying the remaining summer together before school starts in September. We will post another update after Lynn's PET scan hopefully in the fall. Thank you all for your continued support, thoughts and prayers for Lynn and her family.

This past weekend Lynn has finished her third chemo treatment. She also recently had a PET scan that showed the chemo is making progress in her prognosis. The doctors are hopeful that this past chemo treatment will take care of the remaining cancer cells. In three weeks, Lynn will have another PET Scan to see if the Cancer cells are gone. From there, the doctors will decide if another chemo treatment is needed or they will start to prepare Lynn for the bone marrow transplant.

Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation towards every single person who has donated and prayed for us. Your generosity and thoughts are what keep us positive and give us the strength to get through this day by day. We can’t say it enough, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for our family.

We love you all,

Todd, Lynn, Anna and Pippa
