During late November 2012, while giving birth to her third child Willow, Kambria Wesch-Doherty underwent a C-section where doctors discovered and removed an over-enlarged ovary. Two weeks later results came back from John Hopkins Cancer Institute and it was discovered that this rare cancer was not only in her ovary but in various sites throughout her body & brain. Neuroendcorine Carcinoma High grade is an extremely rare and aggressive cancer, in which she is thought to only have had for 4 months. Kambria, husband Gavin, daughters Kirra and Willow, son Griffin, Family, Friends, and anyone who has ever known her are bracing for her Chemotherapy & Radiation not a month after she has welcomed her newest daughter into the world. We are hoping and praying that the chemotherapy will slow down this aggressive cancer and she is able to continue to fight and spend every moment with her young family.
This news has shocked everyone who knows and loves Kambria, but now is the time of all of us to Fight for this extraordinary; daughter, sister, wife, mother, teacher, friend.
Kambria is that rare “extraordinary” person, the type of lady, daughter, sister, wife, mother we all strive to be. She has excelled her whole life. She was the top of her class in academics and her sport. She was awarded a full ride scholarship to UCSB where she was apart of the collegiate swim team and was able to met her husband Gavin.
In her adult life she has been and educator teaching science to middle school children in the Central coast area, and touching all of the children she taught through positive energy and fun in her classroom, teaching thousands of students that hard work and perseverance does pay off.
And most wonderfully; Kambria and her husband have been blessed with three beautiful babies (Kirra age 5, Griffin age 3, and the newest addition baby girl Willow age 1 month). Her babies and her beautiful family is what makes this rare cancer she is fighting so devastating.
For those of us who have been touched by Kambria, we finally have a chance to give back. Please consider donating to Kambria’s fund so that she can focus all of her energy on getting well and not on expenses. Any amount will help and be immensely appreciated! Also, we are a big believer in the power of prayer and positive thoughts, so please keep her in your thoughts!
