UPDATE: Brianna begin having the same cancer symptoms as she did this past summer during spring break, except more painful this time. She was sent to get a CT scan which showed her cancer had returned. She then met with her oncologist who planned the next steps which include to do more chemo (a differnt regimen this time) followed by a stem cell transplant. She thought she was done....she was done.....and now she is having to start the cancer journey all over again...including losing her hair that had just start growing back.
On August 2, 2017, Brianna was diagnosed with Mediastinal Large B-Cell Lymphoma. Beginning Monday, August 14, 2017, Brianna will begin intense chemothearpy treatments. She will be commuting to Austin for 18 weeks to receive treatments. This site is set up as a donation page to help Brianna and her family cover medical costs and living expenses. Brianna had resigned from her teaching job in Austin that she loved to move to the Corpus Christi area this summer to help herself financially and her parents. She was scheduled to sign her teaching contract for CCISD the week she found out she had cancer. So now, not only does she not have a job and unable to work, but will now be without insurance during these highly expensive months of medical and chemo needed. Her and her family appreciate any and all help and kind words throughout this tough time!
