Correcting misinformation.

From Stacy's FB page.

I want to quickly put out my medical facts as there has been some misinformation.

1. I have Astrocytoma Glioma- anyone who has studied this cancer or worked with this cancer or is a brain dr knows there is no cure and this cancer will not go away without away without a miracle. Yes miracles do happen. The Huntsman and U of U had a dr looking at the tests done who was not a brain specialist as they do not have one at this time so they thought it was basically gone......very scary diagnosis to make for someone for me but Dr ChoCair my NeuroOncologist- the only one in the state had me over to him within a day of the hospital getting his own MRI and test and I was seeing Dr. Constantino who was in Haiti when I was in the hospital- the best drs in the world for me are at IHMC here in SLC!!!!

The diagnosis is that I have used the max radiation- I can no longer receive anymore radiation but it slowed the growth of my tumor. Where my tumor is and the kind etc my dr does not believe chemo will work so our resources are now depleted.
So the cancer has slowed growing but the left side being numb has caused back pain. The medication, radiation, surgery and all other procedures have made several of my other organs decide to do crazy things which have added to medications and destruction. I was told the seizures are epileptic caused from headaches and from stress/the trauma to the brain.
They say I will always have a never ending headache so we are working on that.....trying to live with all the other stuff. Not much more we can do but try and leave this a better place for our children and love our children.
