Heather Rubino  BOYNTON BEACH, FL
Heather has been in and out of the hospital since August 2015, with unexplained abdominal pain. Her August admission lasted 23 days with little to no relief. Since discharge from the hospital the pain never really went away. On November 26, 2015 the pain had gotten so bad that she ended back into the hospital. Upon further testing a clot was found in the splenic vein as well as a mass on her pancreas. They are uncertain right now what type of pancreatic tumor it is. The  initial pathology screen came back as "atypical/abnormal" with the official report expected on Monday.  However, based on the initial findings  Heather's  case has been referred to John Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland  for review. Please help her and her family keep up with their bills and help with medical expenses including hotel and travel. We should know more about her situation and prognosis on Monday and will keep this page updated. Any donation amount will help as well as prayers. Thank you!

Thank you all for the continued support and prayers we sure need it. At the end of the month we will visit the dr at MD Anderson. Hopefully he has a trail for me or some options. We are looking around to see if we can find any trails to help or possibly kill the cancer. The chemo doesn't seem to be helping. I am in the hospital. I got the catheter placed into my abdomen so that we can drain my abdomen as needed. We are staying strong and hopeful. We are looking for options and trails to help there might be something in Orlando, we have MD Anderson and then there is a place in Arizona that might be options. Currently I am getting blood and IV potassium. If labs look good in the morning then we should be good to go home. I need to take it easy with the new Tube in my belly. Please keep the support coming. Financial, emotional, making meals, helping with the kids. Anything and everything help. Thank you all!! We love you and we all need to stay strong and hopeful we cannot lose the hopefulness. Love you all!!
