4 weeks ago Patsy went to the doctor and was diagnosed with pneumonia and put on several medications. 2 weeks later with no improvement another chest X-ray was done and abnormalities were found on her right lung. This led to a Ct scan and more blood work. The Ct scan lead to a biopsy. The final diagnosis was worse than the doctors thought; Patsy has advanced non-small cell lung cancer and its past the point where surgery can be performed.
Patsy is not giving up. She's a fighter and determined to win this battle. Chemo therapy and radiation are the next steps.
As strong as Patsy is, this is a fight she can't fight alone. Please help our friend and sister in Christ in any form that you can. Some things will be covered by insurance, some will not. Lung cancer is a very expensive fight. I'm asking anyone within reach to help in any was you can. Monetary is appreciated no matter how small. A little can go a long way. Prayer is needed, and words of encouragement do wonders. Please share this through all your social media platforms and help this family through this.
As of today she just received a PET scan to see if it has spread elsewhere or if it is only localized in the right lung, to determine the best course of action. Results are expected for this test by thursday Feb. 22, 2018.
Currently the mass is the size of a golf ball in her right lung.
