 KENDALLVILLE, IN
Brenda (Reynolds) Maples, was having severe pain in her back and went to the ER. A CT scan revealed her breast cancer had came back in her bones and liver. Stage 4 Her2 triple positive breast cancer. This resulted in a fractured vertebrae. They cannot do surgery at this time. There is no cure, but it is treatable. She is a single mother of 6,  four that are grown and all graduated, two that are still at home and in school. She is a very outspoken woman with a heart of gold. I call her our mama bear because if you mess with her kids...look out!!! She is always willing to help someone in need and rarely will accept help for herself. Gas for getting to appointments and medical bills are going to be difficult. Plus we are researching a few places for a second opinion, that she will have to travel to.  Please help us, help our mama bear. Thank you for your support!!!

Mom is sick today. Coughing, very flushed, nauseated, and hurting pretty bad. On a good note...her tumor marker went from 1091 to 653. Which is excellent. It means her cancer is responding to treatment. Keep the prayers coming!!!

My Mother's update just breaks my heart. As if it isn't bad enough to deal with all that and a fractured back, she is struggling so bad financially. How to get her bills paid, food in fridge, gas money, etc. My wish is to relieve her of some of this. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know most are struggling themselves.

This update is what my mother posted on her Facebook...I'm not looking for sympathy but lots of prayers please! So sick tonight! I've lost 2/3 of my hair. Actually least of my worries. Chemo every Monday! I have all 3 chemos tomorrow & bone shot. Steroids. 3-5 hrs ofchemo in the morning. This is a little much mentally & physically. They need to legalize cannabis oil.

Mom saw oncologist today. MRI of brain showed no cancer. PET scan showed lymph nodes in lung are plump which suggests cancer. They said that doesn't matter because it doesn't change the stage or the treatment they are doing. It also showed what they already knew, that the breast cancer is in the liver and bones. During chemo she had a reaction to the Taxol. The nurses were excellent and right on top of it.
