After suffering from what she thought was heartburn for several months, she went to the doctor when discomfort turned into pain. An ultrasound was ordered to check for gall stones but instead revealed a mass on her liver. A liver biopsy confirmed cancer and she was told that the lesion on her liver was not the primary source of cancer. After numerous other procedures and tests to find the source of the cancer, a PET scan finally confirmed it was bile duct cancer that had spread to her liver.
Michelle has been unable to work for the past month and it is uncertain when she will be able to return to work. She recently had a PICC line put in place to provide her body with nutrients so she can be as strong as possible before surgery. Michelle is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, November 26th to remove the lesion which requires removing ¾ of her liver. Please pray all goes well. She'll need a blood transfusion and will have an incision up her side and across her abdomen. She'll be in the hospital for at least 10 days, followed by a stay in transitional care for an uncertain length of time. Once strong enough, she'll undergo approximately six months of chemotherapy.
Michelle is an amazing single mom of two amazing kids. Jordan (17) is a senior and Ryan (12) is in 7th grade. Thankfully, she is also surrounded by loving family and friends to help support her emotionally and physically.
Because Michelle is unable to work and is incurring additional medical expenses, we have decided to start a GoFundMe account for her. If you feel you are able to help Michelle, any donation amount will help. All donations go directly to Michelle to be used to help cover her expenses. You can also help by sharing this link http://www.gofundme.com/Michelle-Green-Dobler on your own Facebook page and numerous other social media sites to reach others who may know her or may just want to help. Together, we can help lighten the financial load as much as possible for Michelle and her kids so she can focus more on the most important things- spending time with the ones she loves and getting healthy - and less on trying to make ends meet.
Thank you all for your prayers and support.
