In September 2017, Lory was diagnosed with stage 4, moderately aggressive, Cancer of Unknown Primary. This type of Cancer is extremely rare and very difficult to treat. After several tests, numerous doctors and several cycles of Chemo, her team of doctors have still had no success in determining the primary source of the cancer. Lory's continues to fight but is having a really hard time recovering from a back surgery she had underwent in November 2018.
For more information on Lory’s journey, please see her Caring Bridge page at https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/loryruggles
As with any medical situation, Lory’s recovery will face a lot of financial hardships. She is dedicated to keeping her spirits high and not let this deter her one bit. Any donations made will be used to help support Lory during this difficult time. Some of the financial strains she has/will be facing are medical costs, transportation fee’s and living expenses. In addition to these, she is out on leave from work and is starting to feel the strain on her lack of income.

Again, your kind words, prayers and any donations made are sincerely appreciated. Any medical situation faced is easier to face with a strong support system, which comes from each and every one of you!
