My Mother has been just diagnosed with Cancer
by Don & Melanie Bosdell
My Mother Patsy Willis has just been diagnosed with cancer on the 10 April 2010. Her latest test(bone scan) showed that she has cancer in her Left Femur and some "hot" spots along her spine. The cancer has metastacized from some where else in her body, probably her right breast, ovaries or colon.
Update! In just 4 days ago, we learned that her cancer has spread to her breast, spine and colon. On the 23rd of April @10:30am, she went through her first treatment of Chemo, they kept her overnight at the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center in Alaska, due to the port that they installed had become inflamed. I talked to my father Craig and in the background, I could her my mother's strong voice, the strength of her voice was wonderful to hear, and she was very alert.
She will be coming home on Monday(tomorrow), she will be needing a special bed, and father will be expanding the bathroom, with what he has to do it. I make Traditional Tsalagi Nesting Baskets and I am going to try and sell them to raise funds on my mother's behalf.
If anyone would like to write to my mother and encourage her(and my father), Give Strength, Hope and Faith through their time of need:
