OT: Update On Cousin

Post by Rachel T » Sun, 27 Jun 2004 04:29:14



Just talked to my mom, turnes out Rebecca has stage 3 Neuroblastoma. It
affects mainly kids and I guess they have a better chance of surviving it
than ***s.

She had about 2/3 of the tumor in her abdomen removed yesterday (I think,
maybe it was the day before) but the other 3rd is attached to an artery.

She'll probably have to have chemo and all that. They are still waiting on
more tests, etc. to decide exactly what to do.

I guess my aunt is a ragged mess. She has 3 other kids (under 5, all boys 2
of which are twins) I don't think it would be an understatement to say this
is a S.N.A.F.U.

Keep the prayers/vibes coming if you can spare some extra.
Much appreciated...

Rachel

God bless you and your family during this time.  I am a retired peds
nurse and I want to encourage any and all of you to lean on any
resources you have available to you. Ask at the hospital for a social
worker to be assigned to your case, if you haven't already. They can
help with finding resources from helping with financial concerns to
allowing mom to have some uninterrupted sleep.

God Bless,

Karen
