Hello, my name is Jay Paxton and I want to help raise money for my son and daughter-in-law, James and Heather Jeffery Paxton. Heather has been in a fierce battle with Sarcoma Cancer for almost two years. She has been through numerous chemotherapy and radiation treatments; has had two tumors removed from her brain and had to have her left lung removed during this time. After this last operation, Heather developed an infection at the surgical site, as well as, pneumonia in her remaining lung. Two weeks ago, she was put into an induced coma after being unable to breathe on her own during surgery.
"Upcoming Prognosis and Treatments"
Last week, Heather’s doctors brought her out of the coma and seems to be making slow steady progress. Once she is strong enough, there are two more tumors they need to remove from her brain.
Before this operation could take place, Heather’s pre-lab test results showed that she had developed a staph infection along the incision from her lung removal. In addition to all the medications she was already on, her doctors are now giving her more antibiotics to help Heather beat this infection.
"Your Donation Will Help"
Heather has recently completed nursing school and began her career at WVU Ruby Hospital in Morgantown, WV. Due to her sarcoma treatments and surgeries, she has been unable to continue her work. Heather and my son, James, had to move to Florida in order to be close to the Moffitt Cancer Treatment Center in Tampa. Donations are urgently needed and essential to assist with Heather’s hospital and medical expenses, as well as, moving and everyday living costs.
"Thank You All"
We, Heather’s family cannot thank everyone enough for donations, sharing on social media, and your continued thoughts and prayers for her and her brave fight against cancer.
“We Love you Heather! Your Courage Inspires Us All!”
