All these tests showed lytic lesions in pelvis and femur, pathological fracture of pelvis due to neoplastic disease, multiple lesions, like swiss cheese, in 90% of her bones with a final diagnosis of light chain multiple myeloma. Back to Pocono Medical at the Dale & Frances Hughes Cancer Center, she would now have to be treated with chemotherapy in both pill form and IV infusions twice a week for eight weeks. This diagnosis is treatable but not curable and will be a lifelong fight.
She also had to see another multiple myeloma specialist in Hackensack, NJ at the John Theurer Cancer Center where the doctor performed another bone marrow biopsy and blood work to confirm the seriousness of this disease and how advanced it has become in her body.
As you can imagine this has been quite a shock for Betty and her husband, Jason. They have had their hands full with medical tests, doctors, and insurance. They don't know what the total cost of treatment will be or how long Betty will be out of work, but we felt we needed to start something to help alleviate any financial stress so they can focus on treatment and healing.
The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance and to help with daily living expenses.
Please keep Betty and Jason in your thoughts and prayers and thank you for your support. Your thoughts, prayers and generous donations are sincerely appreciated.
