UPDATE: My mom has been responding well to treatment. She just finished her 4th week. This week she had to miss her chemo treatment because of low white blood cells and platlets. She has been keeping a postive attitude and is pushing through.
My mother was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the saliva gland. After enduring a 9 hour surgery to remove the mass and lymph nodes from the surrounding area, they were not able remove all of it. She will now be going through radiation and chemotherapy to get rid of the rest! She has a long road ahead and LGH has been helpful and supportive through this process. My family and I will be walking to help raise money for this organization that has been helping my mom. Please donate or join us on the walk! Thank you!
Each and every dollar raised stays within the communities that we serve, helping our friends, family members and co-workers.
