Posted on May 6, 2017Britton's most recent scan results came back yesterday showing progression of the cancer, which has spread to her small and large intestines as well as increases on her liver. She will get a port inserted this Wednesday, May 10th and start iv chemo the day after, Thursday, May 11th.
I know she covets and appreciates all of your prayers. Thank you for praying!
Please pray for the following:
1. That this chemo drug would be super effective at fighting her cancer.
2. That she won't get sick at all and have no side effects with the chemo.
3. That she won't lose any of her hair.
4. She has had pain in her left side - that it be gone completely and for her to feel great in general.
5. That a clinical trial for which she is eligible will open up.
6. For her family, especially Jason and the kids.
Thank you for all of your prayers and support!!

Posted on October 21, 2016New update from Britton:
So thankful for the past (almost) 2 1/2 years...Here I am still, living with metastatic breast cancer.
The September scan showed 2 enlarged lymph nodes near my heart (one newly lit up, one larger).
I am Staying on my targeted therapy pill, but switched the paired med...which was another daily pill. Now I'm receiving monthly "twin" shots (that basically feel like molasses ;)). These shots have not produced any results yet, but my dr tells me to be patient, as this new medicine requires a "build up" time. I never like the waiting, who does right!? I'm wanting to stay on top of the disease so it doesn't get away from me. But, the Lord knows all this and I trust Him with my life....which I'm really learning is easier said than done ;). Truly though, I'm so thankful for the stability and good, quality time He has given me!
The joy of the Lord is my strength Psalms 118:14
The next scan will be December.
Thank you so much for your continued love and support. It's a long haul and I'm spurred on by your faithful prayers. My mom begins treatment in November, after having ovarian cancer removed last month, so prayers for her are much appreciated also!

Britton will finish up 15 treatments of Radiation on 2 spots that showed activity, in January. Hopefully this treatment will stop the growth in these areas. She is continuing with weekly Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and holistic therapies & supplements to support her immune system. She is so very thankful for the continued support of prayers and finances on this cancer journey. She is scheduled for another set of scans to see her progress at the end of February. Specific prayers appreciated for marked progress to show up on scan from radiation and for wisdom and guidance regarding the possibility of switching from her oral chemo to a targeted therapy, as the chemo seems to be losing its effectiveness.
