After successfully fighting and kicking cancers ass twice in in the last 5 years, Renee is having to put her gloves on one more time to battle Leukemia caused by her life saving Chemotherapy. 

In March 2014, Renee went to her doctor asking for a mammogram. She had family history and wanted to be safe.  At the time Renee and Matt had a 2 &4 year old. Her doctor was reluctant because Renee was only 33, her mother was diagnosed after menopause and her sister was her “half” sister so the chances were slim.  Renee was persistent.  The results came back that the mother of 2 little girls had stage 3 breast cancer.
If you know Renee, you know she is organized.  She did her research, had her notebooks and was ready to start this fight.  She had 8 rounds of Chemo and 35 rounds of radiation between March-July of 2014.  On Renee’s 34th birthday she had a double mastectomy.  Five days later Matt and her took their 5 year old to her first day of kindergarten. Renee (with drains and tubes in her chest) walked in there like every other mom and dad & made sure Madison had a great first day.  Nothing holds this family back.

October 2017
Renee got the devastating news that her breast cancer was back.  She had 12 cancerous lymph nodes in her neck and would require 8 more rounds of chemo and 30 more rounds of radiation.  Not wanting to put her kids through the trauma of losing her hair again, Renee and Matt decided to try Cold Cap Therapy.  For those of you that don’t know what the cold cap is, it’s a cap you wear on your head for 10 hours a day while you receive your chemo.  That’s an extra 6-8 hours every other Friday Matt would sit with Renee while she wore a cap on her head that was -46 Celsius.
Renee was able to keep most of her hair and spirits this time around. Knowing her chemo was caused by hormones she decided to have a hysterectomy after her radiation.  December of 2018 Renee went under the knife once again and had that hysterectomy.  And typically Schuett fashion, Renee and Matt gave their kids a great Christmas.
Now we are here.  Renee went to the doctors and her blood work came back a little "off".  She thought it might have to do with having her daughter home with Influenza A.  She went back a second week and they were still off.

Renee got the call from her doctor telling her to come in the next morning.  She wanted to wait and go with her daughter on a field trip but at her doctor’s request, her husband, mom and step mom went to her appointment.

March 26, 2019-Acute Leukemia
Renee’s battle ahead:
Renee has maxed out on certain chemo drugs.  She now has to have exclusive medication.  She has 3 weeks of chemo and in about 1-2 months she will check into Karmanos.  She will be there for 25-30 days for a stem cell transplant.  After that she will need 24 hour care for up to 2 months, which will not come easy for this busy mom who lives to help and care for others herself.  Aside from being Girl Scout leader for the girls for 4 years, she is part of the Social Committee for her neighborhood, the room mom for her daughter’s 1st grade classroom and the BJB Brandon Junior Blackhawks Cheer GM and Board of Directors for her daughters.

We are raising money for Renee and her family to be able to recover and heal without having to worry.   Although medical insurance covers a lot, there is much more needed that it doesn't.  They have all given us so  much and it is our turn to help them and show how much we care.  Every thought, prayer, dollar and kind gesture is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Quick update!

Karmanos in Detroit is saying the one match that turned in blood should be a 100 percent match! Renee is going to start getting some of the necessary tests done in Pontiac (where she has been fighting for the last 36 days and counting) next week so they can jump in head first when they are ready for her. They are hoping to be ready in about 2-3 weeks.
Renee is continuing to walk her laps around the hospital floor and encourage other patients to do the same. She really started a phenomenon with her “lap board” which keeps track of everyone’s daily exercise goals and progress.
As always your continued support is overwhelming and appreciated.
