August 21st, 2017
Courtney went to see Dr. XunLian at Stonybrook OBGYN where they performed a pap smear and took several biopsies and went home to await the results.
August 23rd, 2017
Courtney received a couple of phone calls telling her that she needed to return to the OBGYN right away, so the appt was made for the following day.
August 24, 2017
Courtney met with the OBGYN doctor and was told that she had Stage 2B adenocarcinoma of the cervix. A PET/CT Scan appt was scheduled for as soon as possible.
September 2, 2017
The PET/CT Scan was performed and an appt was made to follow up with the OBGYN Oncologist.
September 5, 2017
Courtney met with the OBGYN Oncologist to review the results of the PET/CT Scan. Courtney and Bob were very hopeful because this appt was on their wedding anniversary. After meeting with the Oncologist, it was determined that the cancer was not Stage 2B, but Stage 4B, which is the worst stage you can have.
Before leaving the Appt, Chemotherapy appts were made and the first chemotherapy treatment appt was scheduled.Courtney would undergo 6 cycles of Chemotherapy to be done every 3 weeks, from 9/11/17 through 12-26-17
November 4, 2017
Courtney underwent a second PET/CT Scan which is done after 3 cycles. It showed some improvement, but not as they has hoped for.
January 20, 2018
Courtney had a 3rd PET/CT Scan done. This scan showed no improvement from the 2nd.
February 5, 2018
Courtney began 5 and a half weeks of radiation therapy. She will go Monday-Friday for 28 sessions and will undergo another session of Chemo once a week for the next 6 weeks.
This GoFund me Page was made to help with the high cost of medical bills that have been building. Courtney has not been able to work and her husband’s job is their only income.
With Bobs health insurance, they are responsible to pay 20% of the medical bills, plus high copays for each doctor visit and lab work.
Each chemo treatment is around $55,000.
Each PET/CT Scan is around $4500.
The cost will continue to grow with her future chemo and radiation treatments.
Goal amount is $20,000. Please share with friends and family.
