Operation Kick Katie’s Cancer!

Update posted by Katie Herries On Oct 19, 2016

Loved Ones:

Thank you all for your love and support. I couldn't have made it through this past year without you; please know that I am eternally grateful for each one of you. I finally have a radiation and chemo schedule. Beginning Wednesday, November 2, I will have radiation every day (Monday - Friday) for 6 weeks; chemo is once a week after radiation. Both doctor's offices are located on Magnolia near Baylor All Saints.

On November 2, I have to be at the radiation doctor's office by 6:30 am, and that appointment will last at least an hour. Then I have chemo, and that appointment will last 5 hours. After the first day, the radiation will only take between 15 and 20 minutes and is scheduled for 8:30 am each day. Chemo is only once a week and should only take a couple of hours.

I might be able to take myself at first. The chemo isn't supposed to be too terrible - I won't lose my hair and the worst side effect is nausea. However, the radiation is supposed to start out mild and then get more difficult until the end when it is supposed to be very painful. There is a possibility that I might have to have a feeding tube inserted if it becomes too hard to swallow.

Several people have offered to help drive me to and from appointments; some have offered to feed me, and some of you are supporting me with love and prayers. Let me know if you're available.

Love to you all,

Mom/Kate

Would be happy to help in whatever way I can! I am available most MWF mornings, would be happy to jump on the food train, can help coordinate volunteers, or just keep sending you love and prayers. xoxoxo

Thank you for your generosity this last week. You helped raise over $13k in just over a week. Katie found out the cancer has NOT spread to other parts of her body, yay God! She will have surgery next week followed by radiation and chemo two to three weeks later. We are waiting to see how surgery goes before setting up a meal calendar so keep a look out. While Katie did have good news this week, she is still struggling with her insurance company to help pay for expenses. Please continue to keep Katie and her family in your prayers and share the funding page. Thank you!
