Jon Martinson Wellness Support

A LITTLE BACKGROUND - Jon had not been feeling well since early November. He had a bad cold and was pretty tired. Various tests and blood work did not show anything out of the ordinary, but they couldn't let it go. He just wasn't himself! While his cold dissipated, he continued to fight fatigue, dizziness and the occasional headache throughout the month of December and into January. Another appointment, full blood work-up and thyroid check and everything came back without concern. Tessa was still concerned and opted to shift into the internal medicine department and got an appointment January 11. Additional tests of his organs noted higher levels of enzymes in his liver, so additional tests were ordered for the following week.

DIFFICULT DAYS TO A DIAGNOSIS - On Tuesday , Jan. 16 Jon went in for an ultrasound (followed by a CT scan) on his abdomen and Jon has extensive liver metastasis (numerous masses on his liver) and "multiple metastatic nodules" in the lower portion of both lungs, as well. Wednesday, Jan. 17 he had a liver biopsy, Thursday, Jan. 18 a brain MRI followed by an immediate appointment with the oncologist. We had been praying ever since the ultrasound and CT scan that we would start receiving some positive news, but unfortunately we didn't.

Jon has melanoma cancer in his liver, lungs, and brain. At this point we don't know the full extent of how far this cancer has spread, but will share updates of the journey as it is taken one day at a time.
