Lynette was diagnosed with melanoma on July 5, 2016, and has been battling with amazing strength, courage, and faith. What started as a small spot on her head led her to a checkup at the dermatologist. After the initial diagnosis of Melanoma this aggressive cancer moved to her lymph nodes, bones, soft tissue and to her brain. Her body has endured surgeries, many combinations of trial drugs, and radiation on tumors in her leg and brain. Lynette’s mind, spirit and heart strengthened. Despite the many efforts to attack the cancer, the tumors continue to grow and multiply at a rapid rate. Currently, Lynette is in Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital in Dallas with an infection. They have decided when she is stable enough she will return home with the help of hospice. Lynette feels surrounded by God’s love and is at peace. Her wish is for her time to be spent with her family and loved ones filled with laughter and stories. Please continue to pray for her husband Tom, her twins, Hannah and Sean, and her parents.
For those that are close to Lynette you know what an amazing and uplifting spirit she has, no matter what is going on with her, she is tending to those around her, making sure they are happy and taken care of at all times. Her smile and goodwill towards others is never-ending. Taking care of others first is what Lynette has always done so we can now help take care of her and her needs as she is battling this awful disease.
