Fall 2009: Jake and Nancy learned that Nancy's breast cancer was stage four. Winter 2013: They are still fighting. This is a gathering place to follow their story, offer support, love and prayers... to be by their side.

Determining the next step

Yesterday Nancy underwent the biopsy on her liver to determine the pathology of the cancer. The inflamed tissue from the procedure caused her a great deal of pain, so she was admitted to the hosptial overnight to help manage this. She is doing much better now, and Jake is on his way to pick her up. This afternoon they will go in for the head MRI. Based on the pathology and the MRI, Nancy's oncologist will set the treatment course. She will make a "game-time decision" on chemotherapy tomorrow (which course and whether or not they commence tomorrow), based on these pieces of information and on how Nancy is feeling.
