My sister-in-law, Sandi Altomare, started experiencing pain Thanksgiving week. After sleepless nights of horrific pain during Christmas and New Years holidays and trips to ER, and many tests, cancer diagnosis was eventually confirmed. She has small cell lung cancer that has metastasized. It is a very aggressive form of cancer. To make matters worse, she developed a drug resistant bacterial infection and is in the hospital. On a good note, the infection seems to be responding to the current antibiotics she is on. Oncologists don’t want to do chemo/immunotherapy treatment until she completes another 8 days of antibiotics. Some other criteria must be met before she can even begin treatment. Time is passing too quickly for this aggressive cancer. If you feel so inclined to make a donation to help defray medical expenses, it is greatly appreciated. Sandi is a woman of great faith, so prayers are appreciated as well.
