Help Shannon Kick Cancer for Good

Update posted by Aaron Trachtenberg On Jul 20, 2017

Hi everyone,

We wanted to give all of Shannon's supporters a brief update. Unfortunately the new chemotherapy regimen did not work as we had all hoped. This means the stem cell transplant with her own cells is no longer the best option. She has started daily radiation therapy Monday-Friday for the next 5 weeks and is also in the preliminary phases of finding a donor for an allogeneic stem cell transplant.

The last month has been very hard, with a lot of waiting and uncertainty. Shannon had another biopsy to see if anything has changed with the cancer. We are excited to be part of a research study where they will do genetic testing on the biopsy sample to see if that can give us some answers.

Although radiation will come with its own side effects, Shannon welcomes the break from chemotherapy and was able to have her PICC line removed today.

Any messages of support or well-wishes are always welcomed and appreciated, Shannon could use it now more than ever. Thank you again.

Thank you all for your generous donations!

Shannon and I have been completely overwhelmed with the amount of love, support and well wishes everyone has shown her through this site. We are both extremely fortunate to have such wonderful people in our lives rooting for her during this challenging time. We can't thank you enough!

Quick update: Shannon had a PICC line placed, has completed cycle 1 of her new chemo regimen, and is hanging in there. She experienced a few complications this week requiring multiple trips to the ER and hospital but things are settling down now and she is doing okay.
