More Information
Hi! I’m writing on behalf of my cousin,Renee. Renee is 37 years old, and has two daughters, 9 & 13. Three years ago, Renee had a mole removed, and learned that it was cancerous. Melanoma. Her doctor told her she was in the clear after 2 subsequent surgeries to remove all cancer.
Last year, after feeling ill for a while, Renee ended up in the hospital with what she thought was pneumonia, but turned out to be much worse. The cancer was back & was in her lungs, brain & lymph nodes. She has been battling for a long hard year. In July, after numerous radiation & chemo treatments as well as other therapies, all evidence of tumors had been almost zero.
In August however, a new tumor was found in her brain. Renee has undergone two brain surgeries, and is now going through a rigorous chemo treatment to try and keep the cancer at bay. The chemo is a last chance resort.
The doctors have given her about a 10% chance of making it through the holidays. This news has been understandably scary and sad for her & her family, but she is determined to fight & stay with her girls for as long as she can.
We call her Wonder Woman for a reason. Letters or notes of encouragement would go a long way to giving her a small bit of cheer during her fight.
