THE STORY:

Lori was a fierce fighter.  She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the spring of 1994, after she had severe vision impairment.   The eyesight slowly recovered with treatment, however in the coming years the relapses affected her short -term memory, balance, and strength while she was treated with interferon.  Breast cancer soon followed a year later, in 1995.  After extensive chemotherapy, a lumpectamy, and finally a mastectamy, she was in remission.  During this time she was able to continue her career as an elementary teacher at St. Francis.  She enjoyed taking care of and spending time wih her family.  Lori devoted so much time attending every piano recital, every dance lesson, and every sports game.  Fifteen years later we recieved the news that another tumor was found.  After another round of chemotherapy, hormone therapy and a mastectomy, we seemed to be in the clear yet again.  In the year of 2015 mom gradually became weaker and was unable to particiapte in her love of biking, walking her dog Buddy, and socializing with friends. This weakness and fatigue was originally attributed to her MS. Later this summer, she was admitted to the hospital and a CATscan showed us the weakness was actually caused by metastasis of her cancer.  At this time she was also battling pneumonia and a collapsed lung.  Her last days were spent with countless family and friend visits.  For how much she had to fight her whole life, Lori never gave up.  Lori's presence will be greatly missed, but the love she gave will always stay with us.
