Crystal And Her Second Fight With Cervical Cancer

So as you may or may not already know, my sister Crystal Herrick was diagnosed with Stage 1 Cervical cancer in March of 2017. She fought through the cancer with 6 rounds of chemo and multiple rounds of both internal and external radiation. She was declared cancer free November of 2017.

3 months ago Crystal started experiencing pain in her chest, her back, she developed a cough, had trouble swallowing and the lymph Node above her collar bone became enlarged. Crystal had continued her regularly scheduled pelvic exams and was told she was still in remission and clear of any cancer cells.

A PET scan of her entire body and a biopsy of her enlarged lymph node was performed and both came up positive for cancer. The PET scan showed that the cancer cells have spread to her right lung, her subcarinal and paratracheal lymph nodes. The biopsy confirmed that the Cervical cancer had returned and is classified as stage 4.

Crystal will be unable to work during her treatments and will incur the burden of the extra expenses needed to travel, receive treatment and of course her living expenses. Crystal and her family will have a very hard time financially during this time and will need as much support as possible. Whatever you can do to help will be much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read about crystals battle. We appreciate anyone’s assistance, even if they can’t donate. We ask you to help us spread awareness of crystals ongoing fight against this horrible cancer. Thank you so much for your love and support for Crystal and her family during this time!
