Prayers & Support for Rebecca

In May of 2017, Rebecca was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.  She underwent brain surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital on May 31.  After four weeks of intensive rehabilitation, complicated by blood clots and a pulmonary embolism, she began a 6 week course of radiation and chemotherapy.   Since that time, she has had many ‘ups’ with family gatherings and an incredible outpouring of love, prayer and support from her friends and community as well as some ‘downs’ with seizures, intense headaches, cerebral edema, additional blood clots, and limited mobility due to vision impairment.  Through all of this, Rebecca has remained absolutely focused on and devoted to those around her, including asking for prayer requests for others in need.

She has had two additional chemotherapy treatments and will continue as her body allows.  She is on a high dose of steroids to minimize the swelling in the brain which has significant side effects.  She continues to have brain scans in Baltimore once a month.  Her most recent scan showed no new growth which is wonderful news.  

Given the aggressive nature of the disease, the road forward is unknown.  Her focus is on spending time with her three beautiful daughters, Zoe Rose (19), Charlotte Anne (14), and Lilly Jane (12), and her husband Dan.

Rebecca is no longer able to work, drive, or navigate her surroundings independently.  Any support through this page will allow for needed in person care, modifications to make the home environment more secure and safe, and to allow the Haggerty family to focus on caring for Rebecca as their entire lifestyle has changed.  They are incredibly thankful for and humbled by all of the love and support they have received!
