Terri Baker is a single mom of 6 children who is fighting for her life. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 years ago, and has been through 7 surgeries and many treatments. This type of cancer does not respond to chemotherapy or radiation, and is an estrogen-fed cancer. Terri has been the sole bread winner for the last 7 years, working 3 jobs to provide for her family. In 2016, at a regular cancer check-in appointment, the report was that the cancer had come back and was very aggressive. At that time, with the report that they could only give her an estrogen blocker, she decided to do an alternative treatment at the Oasis of Hope in Mexico. She went for 3 stays and had a short remission. In Feb 2017, the cancer spread to her liver and was progressively spreading even further. It was difficult to continue to go to Mexico due to the financial burden and the time off work, so she started working with a doctor in Dickson, and a Naturopathic doctor in Nashville. After exhausting all protocol with the doctor in Dickson, and not being able to afford an alternative path, she was then referred to Sarah Cannon Center for treatment with a new trial drug.

During all of this, and with the help of her oldest daughters and a few close friends: she moved to Spring Hill, sent a daughter to Ireland for a mission trip (who is now home to help take care of her and the rest of the family), sent a son to the US Marines (who will be shipped out any day now), and has been taking care of the rest of the children. 

Terri started the trial drug in January, and due to complications from the liver biopsy and the nature of the cancer, she has been unable to work consistently for the last month. She has been in the hospital off and on since Thanksgiving and is fighting for her life.
