The Higgins Family

Joel Higgins, in our Beaverton Personal Lines department at PayneWest Insurance, has recently found out that his family is expanding as his wife is pregnant with their second child!  During one of the ultrasound appointments the Doctor noticed a spot on his wife, Megan’s ovary, that caused some concern and they requested that further testing be done.  After a few additional appointments and testing, the concerning area has been determined to be ovarian cancer.  After additional research, the doctors have requested that Megan start chemotherapy during her pregnancy to mitigate her risk and she will be starting treatment next week. Prognosis seems to be good, however they have many challenges ahead of them.
We have also set up a website where meals can be scheduled. and insert their last name: Higgins & Password is 4014.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.  We appreciate anything and everything that we can do as we support them throughout this very difficult process.
