February 8 , 2019     Update Cindy Shifflett

Cindy saw her oncologist today and they confirmed that she has stage four genetic based lung cancer, they were able identify the specif gene that caused this to begin. They were able identify the specific gene that the cancer developed from. Additionally they found two additional cancerous tumors outside her lungs, each about an inch in diameter. One on her spine the other in her back but there are no signs of cancer in her brain or inside the spine itself. The plan is to treat her with a chemo pill that was specifically designed to attack that specific type of cancer. At this point they feel it won’t be necessary to do radiation or IV chemo. The pill is designed to start working within days and began the process of shrinking the tumors and preventing other cells from mutating.
It’s not a cure but it has much promise of extending one’s life many months to many years. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary recently and it would be a dream to celebrate the next 25 years together. Please continue to keep her close in your prayers and thank you all for your many well wishes and support.
