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.
