Hello Sunshines!! My story is a bit lengthy but here it goes. I was diagnosed with a rare cancer called ampullary cancer in 2013. I went to the er that trusty Saturday thinking I was having a MS relapse. Boy was I wrong they did tests and said I had stage 4 cancer and it already moved to my liver. I was devastated . So they called my family in and said I wasn't coming out of the hospital. Well look at God I got to go home and start chemo. Chemo to shrink tumors so I could qualify to have surgery (only 3% of patients can have). So on 08/11/14 I had a ten hour surgery they took half my liver, my gallbladder, my spleen and a third of my intestines. The surgery is called the WHIPPLE (Google it or look on YouTube). From there I was in hospital for months...I turned septic and had to sleep on icebed for some days. I was fighting so hard to be here for girls and grandson. So from there the cancer came back I had to have radioactive ablation basically the burnt the cancer off. After that I was fine. Then October of last year I had six spots show up on both lungs. Non operable! So back to chemo.The first two chemo treatments were painful...sick all the time...lost my hair. I wasn’t able to play with grandson. See I fight so hard because my girls only have me. I fight so hard for my life to be here for grandson. I promised I would be the best GiGi cause I didn’t have grandparents. Well here I sit taking chemo again. I am extremely thankful for God keeping me. I will continue to fight. 

God Bless You
