Bridget's Battle with Cancer

Welcome to Bridget's Brigade! A team assembled from friends and family to help a loved one overcome her new nemesis: Cancer.  

On Monday September 3rd, Bridget had an appointment in Fargo, ND to have a biopsy of a polyp that had formed in the uterus. Test results came back positive for endometrial cancer. In a flurry of activity, Bridget, accompanied by her trusty husband Kevin, were off to Rochester, MN to have a consult with an expert in the field. 

On Monday, September 10th Bridget had a total hysterectomy (meaning all of the female parts: uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries were removed). Pathology results came back later, showing possible malignant activity in the sentinel nodes. Currently, she has been diagnosed with Stage 2, grade 3 endometrial cancer. 

In the upcoming weeks, she will have multiple treatments of both radiation and chemo. 

Donations collected will go directly to Bridget and Kevin to cover costs of traveling between ND and MN, medical expenses and just a way to say, "I'm thinking of you". Every donation is very much appreciated.
