Hi my name is Joe. I am Amy Masse's boyfriend who loves her so much. Amy is a beautiful, intelligent, hard-working, one-of-a-kind woman. She is a second grade teacher at Elizabeth pole school who has been battling cancer for the past few months. She has not been able to teach her students since being diagnosed. My family is raising money for Amy and her family to help lift the burden of medical bills and daily cost during these difficult times.
Amy was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon and Liver cancer after having a scan for Lyme disease this past summer. The scan showed lesions on her liver. After numerous doctor appointments and a biopsy at Brigham and Women's Hospital the bad news was revealed to Amy and her family. Amy is staying strong and fighting hard. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Amy knows how special she truly is. She has a heart of gold and a smile that lights up any room.
Amy has endured aggressive chemotherapy treatments, countless doctor appointments, scans, and blood work. At the end of March Amy will be going into Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's Hospital for the first of two surgeries. The first surgery will entail taking 3/4 of her liver and the second surgery will entail taking part of her colon. After the surgeries Amy's will again be put through many more rounds of aggressive chemotherapy.
Your donation in any amount will be greatly appreciated by this resilient woman and her family. Every donation will make a difference. If not able to help with a donation a simple word of PRAYER is always welcomed and very much needed as she goes through the next few months of treatment. Let Amy know how many people are here for her and will fight with her.
Lastly, thank you for the time you have taken to read this campaign for my beloved Amy. Please share this campaign with as many family and friends as possible.

Good morning Hope all are enjoying the beautiful weather. Amy had her seventh chemo treatment on June 7th. The desensitization infusion went well. She didn't experience any allergic reactions during this treatment. She was even able to get her pump put on the same day which was nice, one less day in Boston . The only side effects that really seem to bother her is extreme fatigue for the week after chemotherapy. Today we went for her 8th chemotherapy treatment. After doing blood work this morning we were informed her white blood cell count was too low for her to have her chemotherapy treatment. They rescheduled her for 2 weeks and hopefully all the counts will be back to normal by then. This means her next surgery will be delayed a little bit. Amy continues to smile and continues to stay strong even with every little bump in the road she faces. Thank You for all your support and prayers. #AMY'S ARMY#

On May 2, 2018 Amy began her chemotherapy treatment again. During this chemo treatment she had an allergic reaction. She was sent to see a specialist who deals with allergic reactions to chemotherapy. We were advised she is allergic to one of the chemotherapy medications she is having. The allergist devised a new plan so Amy could continue with the same chemotherapy treatment. Today she came to Dana-Farber to continue her chemotherapy . The infusion is now done slowly over a 10 hour time frame. During today's treatment Amy had another episode and was given some medication to deal with the allergic reaction to the chemotherapy.

Good Evening. It is now 6 weeks post liver surgery. Amy, while still in some pain continues to get better every day. She started another round of chemotherapy on May 2nd. What a huge difference doing chemotherapy at Dana-Farber instead of doing it close to home. We learned so much at the first appointment. Things we never learned in eight weeks of chemotherapy at Dartmouth. Amy has done so much better after this treatment. Usually she suffers from a lot of symptoms especially nausea, but the doctors at Dana-Farber seemed to have controled the nausea very well for her. She has had some minor symptoms from the chemotherapy, but nothing like she suffered before . Amy continues to stay strong and positive at all times. She is a true fighter . Everyday she amazes me at how well she handles everything that is thrown at her. Even with everything she has been through or will be going through Amy continues to smile. Amy will have four rounds of chemotherapy and then surgery on her colon. After the surgery she will have 4 more round of chemotherapy . She is extremely grateful for all the prayers, support, and generosity that is coming her way. #AMY'S ARMY#

Hello. It has now been 2 weeks post-surgery and Amy is home resting comfortably. She has her good days and she has her bad days, but she seems to be heading in the right direction. We met with the doctor last week. Amy will start another round of chemo beginning the first week of May. Once that is complete she will have her second surgery on her colon. Amy would like to say thank you to everybody for their support and prayers. Once again thank you. # AMY'S ARMY
