On September 19, 2012. She saw a doctor in Louisa, Kentucky telling him she was hurting in her neck. He proceeded in doing an ultrasound and CT Scan. Dr. Harris was shocked to find a large mass on her chest and it grew into her neck. She was then sent to West Virginia Cabell/Hunington hospital to do a biopsy. The large mass was displacing her trachea to the right and severely constricted the left innominate vein. The biopsy confirmed it was a rare B Cell Lymphoma and growing rapidly. They wanted to do another biopsy but she needed to get back home with her family. Her mom and sister took the next flight to West Virginia to immediately bring her home.
In Lafayette she had a hard time finding a doctor that would see her right away. Finally after two weeks she had an appointment for consul. As soon as the oncologist saw her, he admitted her into the hospital and ordered chemo ASAP to shrink the cancer. There was no time for a PET Scan to see what stage the cancer was in. And there was no time to do another biopsy to see how rare the B Cell Lymphoma was.
