Mary was diagnosed with rectal cancer in Feb 2017, started radiation and chemo in March and went every day till May 1 when she got to ring the bell for treatment completed. In June she had PET SCAN to see if the cancer was gone and that's when they said it traveled to her lung and liver. She started chemo again in September for lungs and liver. She had a really hard time with treatments this round. Went in to hospital in November and was transported to Herman Memorial in Houston for brain cancer surgery on Nov 12. Her lung cancer had entered the blood stream and went straight to her brain. After a 4 hour surgery, they removed 3 cancer modules and she had to have intense radiation treatment every day for 10 treatments. She will have CT SCANS on the 27 of this month to see if her lung and liver reacted at all the any treatments. Then in January she will have another brain MRI to see if cancer is still in the brain and treatments will be decided accordingly. She has not been able to work basically the whole year. She is on FMLA but that is no paycheck, it is only a position hold for when she gets to return to work. She is not offered Long Term Disability. Please share and help support her during this difficult time.
