Traci's Medical Fund

Traci was first diagnosed with Stage 3A Breast Cancer in July of 2014.  She had a right mastectomy, 16 rounds of chemotherapy, and a few other breast reconstruction surgeries.  She was monitored routinely with check ups.  In the winter of 2016, her physician noticed an increase in her cancer marker.  February of 2017, an MRI of her chest reviled a tiny tumor in the area of where her mastectomy was.  A suggestion of ovary suppression was the next thing to  since the cancer was estrogen/progesterone positive.  Prior to ovary suppression, her oncologist ordered a Pet Scan.  It was reviled that Traci had bone involvement.  Her cancer had metastasized to her bones.  She had a good sized tumor in her left hip.  A Orthopedic Oncology Surgeon in Spokane took the tumor secured her hip joint with a rod and several pins in late May of 2017.  
Monthly chemo, hormone, bone builder, and ovary suppression injections was the protocol.  
In mid October 2017, a Pet Scan showed some tumors shrinking and others still just hanging out.  An MRI and Nuclear Med Bone Scan in November concluded the same.  Her Oncologist began to ponder.  
On December 11, Traci traveled to Houston for a consult at MD Anderson Medical Center with the hopes of fitting the profile for a drug trial.  The drug trial would consist of 6 monthly doses of Radium Chloride given intravenously. 
Traci was chosen, in fact, she was the 36th patient out of 36 to be a part of the study.  She will have to travel to Houston a total of 7 or 8 times throughout this year.  Wings is helping with some travel expenses and Spotted Bear Spirits  has a "Traci Mule" on their menu to help her out financially.
We all have heard of the saying...What comes around, goes around...Traci is a giver and its her time to receive.  It does take a village and she has one heck of an awesome one behind her. #hope is her mantra for 2018.  Lets help her kick this once and for all!!! 
Thank You
