THE STORY:

On March 10, 2014 I was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery to remove my appendix. I woke up the next day in the ICU alone and confused. The resident came and asked the usual questions, do you know where you are and what is your name. After responding she informed me that they did perform an appendectomy however a tumor was discovered, removed and biopsied. Then she said the words I'll never forget ..I'm sorry, but you have colon cancer. WHAT! How did this happen? I'm 36yrs old with a husband and children. The roles aren't suppose to reverse, I'm suppose to worry about my husband when he's deployed or in the field. Not the other way around. Cancer had yet shown it's ugly face. Two years prior my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer also.

   Four days after surgery, my surgeon came and spoke with my husband and I. His news wasn't any better. "Mrs Barefield, I apologize but a year ago you were misdiagnosed with colitis. You had colon cancer and now your at stage 4. It has spread to the peritoneal wall. You will require another surgery to remove it from the stomach layer after 3 months of chemotherapy, called HIPECC. (Heat induced chemotherapy infused directly into the abdomen)." 

   I started my first round 4 weeks after surgery. Things were moving very quickly and healing from the surgery wasn't a priority. However another twist of events has occurred and my husband's insurance does not cover all of the surgical expenses. 

   The last few months have been a rollercoster of emotions however I am fighting to celebrate more birthdays. Prayers are solicited as well, also please put Tricare in your prayers so that the next soldiers family will be covered and not denied. Anything given small or large will greatly be appreciated. God bless you.
