As so many of you know, Jody has been in the fight for for her life for almost 2 years! Throughout this time, she and her family have been through so much and continue to face obstacles which she is determined and hopeful to fight and bust through. The rest of us feel very helpless as we watch and hear her story continue. Donations are one way to help her and her kiddos continue to create memories together and for them to carry on as normal as possible. Your continued love, thoughts and prayers for her are so deeply appreciated and help more than you know. Here are her words…
I'm on my next hill climb for my road with this cancer beast. I started a treatment Keytruda 4/20/17. It's an immunotherapy that I receive every 3 weeks. The plan is for it to build my immune system up to break through the cancer walls and stop this aggressive cancer from growing. As of right now I have stage 4 triple negative breast cancer that has metastasized to my liver, lymph nodes, brain fluid, 3 spots on my brain, couple vertebrae, my hips, and into some bones. I cannot do certain trials because of the cancer in my brain fluid.
I have had numerous chemo and chemo trails throughout my journey since 7/2/15 and most recently radiation to my brain, vertebrae, and hips.
I am very fatigued and most days have flu like body aches. I was told to stop playing kickball and softball because if I twist, kick, lean, or stretch wrong I could break my hip(s). Feels like my lively hood has been taken.
As of right now I HOPE & PRAY this works. I'm a fighter and won't give up! My sister Janna, my kids Arielle, Tyler, and Isaac, need me in their lives for a long long time, as do all my close friends, etc. I am petrified of step parent having anything to do with raising Isaac!!! IF the Keytruda does NOT work, I could possibly only have several months. I will not see any results until 3rd or 4th treatment. THIS DRUG HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL FOR TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER!!! Therefore I am counting on being around for years!!!
THANK YOU to all that have supported me on this path, that help me, pray, talk to your higher power, everything.
I am asking now for continued major prayers to whatever you believe in, ongoing support, love and hope!
As you all know of me, I am fighter determined to kick cancer ass!!! I will remain positive, hopeful! Please do not feel sorry for me, we ALL go through major life endeavors, just be optimistic!
Love you all!
