Thank you for checking out our story about our daughter Brittany, who just turned 18. She is a senior in high school. However, Brittany has been sick for the past couple months, throwing up, horribly short of breath and a large weight loss. Doctors kept telling us it was first a viral infection, then it was pneumonia, then an ultrasound that results showed it was renal cysts and her gall bladder. We returned to her oncologist on December 29th, 2014 for her post-op visit. He was happy with how good she looked, however, he gave us the worst news anyone could ever receive. Her pathology tests all came back positive for cancer and that she will need to undergo chemo. As much of a shock as this is for her and our family, she is ready to fight this battle and beat cancer. She is having a very positive outlook on this whole experience and just wants to get better so she can move on with her life and be the happy teenager she is meant to be. Now her attitude and outlook is very positive, as she said, "She's got this!".
Brittany has been one of the strongest, happiest 18 year olds I have been lucky enough to call my step daughter. She is in high spirits. I am trying to raise a little bit of money for her care and anything she needs along the way, as her mother has stop working so she can take care of her daughter full time. Brittany was told on December 29th 2014 at the age of 18 that she has Ovarian Cancer. From that very moment, her attitude as been "She's got this and we WILL beat it!" We are just asking for some small donations to help us along the way. It going be a long ride and we know along the way we going be short on paying some bills as the trip to the hospital is 50 miles each way from our home. Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read our story. We will be adding more news and updates along the way. All the money donated will go to the care and needs of Brittany, as her mom will be helping with her care and the money will be used for food, bills, and anything else to make sure Brittany is as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much.
