Veronica Bong was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colorectal Cancer in November 2015. In December she started radiation and chemotherapy for eight weeks and did not miss any work. She underwent a resection surgery on March 17th to remove the tumor and the affected lymphnodes. Happy to say that the surgery was a success, the tumor was removed and the lymphnodes showed no signs of cancer. She is currently recovering and the recovery time is 6-8 weeks. She is hoping to go back after four weeks. During this recovery time she is unable to work and doesn't have enough sick days to cover some of the missed work.
Veronica has been a public school teacher within Minnesota for 27 years. She has been the rock for our family for so long and its time for her to lean on family/friends/strangers. Any donations, thoughts and prayers would be very helpful during this difficult time.
