Lindsay recently found out that her breast cancer had metastasized to the brain. The results showed over 20 lesions throughout her brain.(The lesions have caused blurred/distorted visual changes which makes it difficult to read, drive and other daily living task.) They did additional testing, which revealed the cancer was concealed in the brain and hasn't spread. The doctors feel it is directly related to Lindsay's Her-2 breast cancer diagnosis.
Lindsay started (whole brain) radiation on Tuesday, August 14th. This treatment will take place every weekday for 15 treatments. In addition she has been accepted into a Clinical Trail where she is given a new approved pill to take during the radiation. During the treatment some side effects which will occur are short term memory loss, possible cognition challenges as well as fatigue and nausea. The doctors have already prescribe medication short term memory loss. With this being said Lindsay is unable to work during this fight against cancer.
If you aren't following her story on Caring Bridge, she is being treated at the University of Michigan.
