Elizabeth Slays Sarcoma - Round 2

Hi Everyone-

Thank you for stopping by my page. Dave and I, along with our boys, are so grateful for your love and support during this difficult time. 

I have recently been diagnosed with high grade synovial sarcoma. I have a tumor on the left side of my chest that is larger than an orange. The doctors are almost certain this cancer was caused by the high levels of radiation I received when I had my Hodgkin's Lymphoma when I was 16. Because this new type of cancer I have is so rare, my care has been transferred to the UCLA Sarcoma Center.

I will need a major operation as soon as possible to remove the tumor. Because of the size and placement of my tumor, the surgeons will need to open my sternum to try to remove the tumor. This operation will leave me in the hospital for at least a week and my recovery at home with be a couple of months pending no complications. 

Therefore, I have created this page for those who wish to donate to my medical/recovery fund. I am so fortunate to have an army of love and support behind me and several people asked me to please create this page so they could help. 

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping my family during this difficult time. I will spend my life trying to give back once I am healed and CANCER FREE FOR THE SECOND TIME! 

With love, 
Elizabeth Cannata
