In September, Katie was told once again her brain tumor was growing, peripheral vision was worse and a change in the strength of her optic nerve that holds the tumor. Her Oncologist and Neuro Ophthalmologist noticed a change 9 months ago, then 6 months more of a change and 3 months ago a major change in her tumor and vision loss. She started a chemotherapy study trial in November at Siteman Cancer Center and the plan is to take it for 1 to 1 ½ years to kill all the cells that feed the tumor.
Her insurance company is declining to pay for the chemotherapy treatments. Her oncologist is hoping the drug company will donate a few months of the medicine so the cost isn’t a burden on Katie.
Friends and Family of Katie’s are hosting a trivia night to help raise money for her medical bills and expenses. If you are unable to attend the event but want to donate it is greatly appreciated!
