Mom's Fight Against Sarcoma

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind as they have been filled with tests, lab, exams, more tests and then the news we all prayed we wouldn't hear. Mom has been diagnosed with a high grade, aggressive form of sarcoma cancer named UPS. It is extremely rare and we feel blessed that she has a team of sarcoma specialists that have given her an extensive, specialized plan of care. We feel we are in the best hands but these hands are in Denver and Mom's treatment will be aggressive, like her cancer. Inpatient chemotherapy for 3 cycles, 21 days each cycle followed by 5 weeks of radiation and ultimately surgery.  Mom starts treatment immediately with port placement and chemotherapy. Obviously this is extremely scary but also stressful as travel expenses and medical out of pocket expenses have already started to build. Any amount helps ease the burden that Mom carries as she starts this journey.
