Trish vs. Burkitt’s Lymphoma

Trish is a 38 year old recently diagnosed with a rare cancer called Burkitt Lymphoma with a genetic mutation. The official diagnose just came in on December 23 2019. She went to the doctors for discomfort in her abdomen to be told that day she most likely had cancer as the CT shown a large mass. It was a week wait for the surgery to remove the mass and perform a complete hysterectomy. Due to the locate of the mass a biopsy wasn’t able to be completed. While the surgery was going on is when a biopsy was completed and shown to be cancer. It was multiple masses and not just one. Besides the complete hysterectomy a partial bowel dissection. This all happened on November 22nd. After 4 days in the hospital she was discharged to continue hearing at home. Unfortunately after a few days at home things only got worse and not better. On November 30th it was back to the hospital. This time the stay was for 6 days while they worked on getting the bowels to work correctly again and dealt with a large sonoma where the incision was. After finally being released from the hospital it was time to start to treat the cancer. Currently on week 3 of treatment the basic needs are starting to pile and the realization that help is going to be needed which is why this page was created. Any amount that can be donated is appreciated to help make this journey a little easier. Check back often as we watch Trish kick Burkitt Lymphoma’s ass... because we know she’s going to wipe the floor with it and make it wish it picked someone else!! We appreciate your support, words of hope, and encouragement. It is hard to ask, but this is definitely a marathon, and we have come to realize that we cannot run this marathon alone.
