Emelie O'Brien has been diagnosed with colon cancer on Saturday, August 10th, 2013. The doctor found 8" of a large mass on her large intestine and had surgery on that Saturday to have as much removed as possible. Cancer comes in forms of cells, so obviously the doctor wasn't able to remove all of it, so she will have to undergo the treatment of chemo. Upon having the XRays done, the doctor also dound 2 more masses on her lungs, which hasn't yet been diagnosed as cancer, but there is a real chance that it will be.
If in fact the test comes back that her lungs are cancer, she will be able to have chemo treatments together with her colon. If not, she will need to treat them seperately.
Emelie was just about to retire from her job in the next couple of years. She lives in Brevard County, Florida and doesn't enough money to cover all of the chemo treatments that will be necessary. Even though she does have health insurance, there are only certain things in that insurance that is to be covered by the insurance company.
We ask that we all come together and try to raise as much money as we can together (even if it is only $5) every last cent counts.
Thank you to all of the friends and family to make this happen. We will try to work together in hopes that Emelie will get better and fight this cancer and smile again.
