Good morning everyone.
As some of you may know, my mother-in-law has been fighting pancreatic cancer since September 2015. She has made a ton of progress and has come along way, but unfortunately is still battling. In the last couple months we have had a lot of ups and downs with the cancer. One PET scan came out clean, but then two weeks later was told to start preparing. It has been a roller coaster of emotions for us all.
Last week Jan had another PET scan, and we found out this morning that results aren’t clean. The cancer has spread to her left hip, which would explain why she has been having a hard time walking lately. Her tumor marker went back up to 11,477 which is basically double what it was last time. To help fight this she is going to start taking chemo pills every other week along with radiation therapy for her hip bone.
Pancreatic cancer is nasty you guys…anyone who has either had it, or knows someone you has had it knows what I am talking about. It is so difficult to see someone you love go through any time of cancer. It’s hard to see Jan go through this because of what a loving, caring person she is. The worst part for me is that I feel helpless. There’s literally nothing I can do or say to cure it or make it better. The only thing I can do is help her however I can and continue to trust the Lord and pray for her.
In order to help Jan out with her medical bills we set up a go fund me account awhile back. It’s ridiculous how much it cost for her to even get a weekly shot, or take a weekly pill. If you could share this link on your social media pages we would be so appreciative of it. We would also feel extremely blessed to anyone who feels it in their heart to donate and/or pray for Jan!

Thank you for being here and listening to me. Thank you for your support whether that’s keeping Jan in your thoughts and prayers, sharing her link or donating. We are just blessed to have any form of support we can get. ❤
