Jane was diagnosed in October 2015 with Stage 1 Breast Cancer and after a surgery and 4 months of chemotherapy and radiation, she got the news that the breast cancer was gone and she was in remission. This was obviously huge news for Jane and our family and it abled her to see one of her nieces get married in Spain. However, after a few weeks of being home, she started to feel shooting pain when she sat, used the restroom, walked, etc. After many tests later, it was determined that she had Stage 3 Anal Cancer. This new cancer was very painful and the treatment was much harder this time around, but she kept hope and got the clear that she had beat cancer a second time in September 2016. Friends and family were over the moon for her and we all believed that the worst was over for the strongest woman we all know.
During a routine scan to ensure that the anal nor the breast cancer had returned, the doctors noticed something very small on her lung. Her oncologists could not believe what they were seeing but yet again, we received the news that she had another new cancer. The lung cancer was so easily reached, that they successfully removed the tumor and surrounding areas-in effect, half of her left lung. Just a few months later as the spring months came around, Jane’s breathing suffered tremendously. We believed it to be just allergies but after another routine scan, more cancer was detected. In June 2017, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung Cancer.
The past week has been very tough for Jane and her family and friends. She has undergone two surgeries to stop the lime-size tumor from growing any larger or taking over any other parts in her body. The doctors have not found a cure and are struggling to find a course of treatment to keep her with us. During this time and during all of her treatments these past two years, she has stayed at work to allow for our family to keep our house and continue to pay her extensive medical bills.
Her family, friends and peers are devastated and cannot imagine Jane not being in their lives. Jane will need to stop working full-time in order for her to focus on her health and her life. We are asking for donations to help relieve the monetary stress the family is going through. This will allow for the Coleman’s to pay off her outstanding medical bills, all while keeping the roof over their heads. Any donation is appreciated and if you are unable to donate, please share this page with your family and friends because we all know someone who has been affected by cancer.
