Audrey’s diagnosis of Stage IV Renal Carcinoma in February 2016 came as quite a shock to us. She decided her best chance of beating this was with the skill of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Everyone there has been so helpful in guiding us through this odyssey. Her treatment began with a targeted chemotherapy called SUTENT while they came up with a game plan. In August they performed a Radical Nephrectomy which removed a football sized mass. It was hoped that by removing the main tumor and right kidney the smaller tumors  would be easier to fight. Unfortunately with each visit seemed to come another setback. Gamma Knife Radiation treated five lesions on her brain. The next target was a mass in her lung, the Cyber-Knife therapy left her very weak. A buildup of fluid in the lung required a visit to the ER where it was drained, giving instant relief. A week later and another ER visit for another draining. A third ER visit came when Audrey began losing Motor Control of her left leg and a CT scan revealed more tumors in her brain. Thanksgiving and Christmas were both spent in the hospital.

 We had an appointment today for a CT scan and while we were there she wanted to see if we could get in to see someone and possibly have her lung drained a third time as she is having difficulty again. Unfortunately today we were met with the devastating news that a tumor is growing and pushing on her left bronchial tube, Oxygen seems to help.

Since this nightmare began, so many wonderful people have shown such a tremendous outpouring of love and support. Audrey has always graciously denied needing any help as long as she was able to do things for herself. We have arrived at a point where she can no longer stay in a Rehab Facility and are preparing to bring her home. Insurance does not cover the amount of care required at this stage. It has been suggested we begin this Go Fund Me page as a way for those who would like to help provide Audrey with the in home nursing visits that she needs. No contribution is too small, and all are appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.
Love and Prayers

It is with a very heavy heart that I must announce the passing of my wife Audrey. She was able to come home yesterday where she had a wonderful day seeing and petting her dog and cat that she had not seen in months. She had a very good day yesterday and was truly at peace. We got to watch Jeopardy together (her favorite) and she even sent a couple of texts.
To EVERYONE that has sent in a donation, I want you to know it will be put towards her final arrangements.
Peace and Love to all of you

I want to take a moment to thank everyone that has helped Audrey in her fight against cancer. Since beginning her GoFundMe page to ensure that she has the around the clock care she now requires, the outpouring of Love and Support has been tremendous. Today is the day we bring her home! Thank you everyone!

Audrey is a special person, full of life and brings energy to those around her. Her profound love of those closest to her including her dog is evident. God bless.
