Last Friday, September 21, my mom was admitted to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the battle of her life began. 3 weeks prior, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
She underwent an 11 hour surgery called the Whipple.
She is still in the hospital and is making great progress with her recovery. However, the story doesn't end here with a stitched up belly. She will most likely face chemotherapy and a long recovery period. But she's a fighter and she is going to whip this thing called cancer. Give it the smack-down.
My mom has an amazing network of family and friends.
Thank you for all of the love and support out there!
