Team Diane Cancer Fund

33524446_1538793271704357_r.jpegDiane was diagnosed with Stage 4 Uterine Cancer in early September. She chose to fight and did her first Chemo therapy at the Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha on September 18th.  She had some complications with fluid from her first chemo treatments at the time that caused her to have a short stay in the hospital in Omaha at that time. She came home, and was fighting nausea and vomiting from the chemo (or so we thought), until on Wednesday September 26th. We rushed her to the ER in Sioux City, where after running some labs we found that the majority of her organ functions were not working well at all.  She was transported to Nebraska Medicine Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha where they began tests to find out why she was having so many issues. During the course of that time her vitals began to drop drastically, she went into kidney failure, and her heart could no longer maintain functioning on its own. We had to make the decision to put her on life support in order to help her fight.  She was moved to the ICU where she has remained, and continues to remain as of 10/5/18. Unbeknownst to the doctors and us when she first arrived in Omaha her white blood count had dropped to nothing, and she had no ability to fight off the most basic of bugs. She had contracted E. Coli and it was running rampant throughout her system.  We thought we would lose Diane last week but she has continued to fight for each and every day. Needless to say, in order to be there to support her and comfort her during her time in the ICU it has taken a toll on the family finances. We are asking for donations to help Diane's husband remain near her while she fights with all her might to get healthy enough to come back home.
