Shannon Schroeder:
At the age of 40, hearing you have breast cancer is not something you could ever prepare yourself for.  I have lived and  worked my entire life in the Beaumont Area.  I have 3 beautiful children, Cole who is 14, Cassidy 11, and Caylee 9, and I will fight for my life in order to see them grow up.  They are by far the best thing I have accomplished and enjoy in my life.  

Diagnosis
June 11, 2018, was the day I was told I had infiltrating mammary carcinoma,  along with regional lymph node metastasis.  Which is cancer cells that spread to new parts of the body.

Treatment Plan
• Being treated at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center for breast cancer. Received chemotherapy every three weeks for 6 months.
On completion of chemotherapy, I will proceed with a mastectomy surgery January 2019, followed by 6-8 weeks of radiation therapy, and  also require and additional 8 treatments of immunotherapy after surgery/radiation and 5-10 years of oral endocrine therapy.

Shocking News 
• I can honestly say I will never forget December 5, 2018.  Not only is it the day we said our goodbyes to my grandmother, I received a phone call from my job of 14 years that I was being laid off and it was my last day of work, and my health insurance would be ending 2 days later with no option of Cobra.  If you could only imagine what was going through my mind at the time.  

How you can help
Donations will be used for:  Covering medical bills, and day to day living for my family.

New insurance requires displacement from my home and family
• I will have to stay in Houston for 6-8 weeks for daily radiation treatments Monday-Friday

Thank you for helping me in this fight with cancer!

June 11, 2019 Update

Monday June 10, 2019 trip to MD Anderson went really well. Any good news is good news, lol it's all about the little things in life. After receiving my third drain tube set, this set was removed after being in my chest for 6 weeks. It has only been one day but the seroma seems to have finally decided to heal. Keeping my fingers crossed that my chest will finally heal completely. I have 12 more chemotherapy treatments to go, trust me this sounds so much better then over a year lol. After the treatments are over and we are finally cleared from cancer hoping off to surgery we go. At this point a tissue expander will be placed on my left side in order for the reconstruction to begin. Not sure how long the process will take, I am guessing it is how my body reacts. Once the tissue has expanded enough then 1 of many surgeries will follow in order to rebuild my left breast.

I will continue to keep everyone updated throughout the process.

Again I would like to say THANK YOU. My days off joy would not be possible without great and supportive friends, and family I have like you.

Till our next update

Update: February 21, 2019

I visited the Oncologist and my chemotherapy will be postponed due to the infection I had. The doctor want to make sure that I am fully healed from the mastectomy before they start because we need everything to continue to go smoothly. I will be headed back to MD Anderson today to begin my radiation, and Monday will be the first night of the relocation from home due to radiation is everyday Monday-Friday. Not quite sure where yet I will be staying but I am pretty sure it will be an adventure. Radiation Treatment will last till April of this year, and Chemotherapy when it starts again will last a year.

Thank you, and I know I could never repay everyone for all the prayers and assistance, but I do promise I will try as soon as I am healthy enough to give back.

I am still waiting to see about my living situation for the next 6 weeks I Houston by the Medical Center. I will also begin my new Chemotherapy treatment while I am undergoing Radiation. I am truly blessed for everything and everybody who has supported me throughout my journey. It is not quite over but closer today then I was yesterday. Thank you again for everything and if any new information arrives I will keep everyone informed. Have a wonderful day and we will talk again soon. HAPPY FRIDAY
