Amy Scoggins Strong

One of our family members needs our help.  And make no mistake Amy is family to so many of us.  The strength and courage it takes to win the battle with cancer not once but twice is nothing short of amazing.  And now she finds herself having to take up arms yet again.  I think Wright Ward sums it up best when he says we expect nothing less than a "Three-peat".  The prayers, love, support, and friendship that we all provide will work wonders in her fight.  Please help us also fund the difficult financial burden as she embarks on another most difficult challenge.

Updates will be provided via her Caring Bridge page.  The most recent update is provided below.

Now for the history.  As many of you already know, Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and went through a double mastectomy and reconstruction.  She was re-diagnosed in 2009 and went through this once again, this time with radiation and chemo-therapy.  Since the surgery in 2009, she has been cancer-free.  Recently Amy started experiencing some issues and visited several doctors.  It seemed that each doctor found something different and a couple biopsies and many tests were performed.   While we were optimistic after the test results, the last biopsy came back with a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma in her female parts.  It was determined that surgery would be performed to remove the tumor and the lymph nodes.  Evidently the location of this type of cancer is pretty rare.  Our hope was that after the surgery the results would show the tumor was removed with clean margins and the lymph nodes were clear.  The good news is that the surgery went well and the 1st visit with the doctor post-surgery he indicated the recovery was going well.  The bad news is cancer was found in both lymph nodes and was reported to be stage 3, grade 2A .  Treatment plan at this point appears to include both chemo and radiation once she recovers from her surgery.  Treatment will probably begin after Thanksgiving.
