The Story

Joey has been a great friend and colleague to many of us.  She is battling her 3rd round with brain cancer.  Joey first became aware of her cancer some 8 years ago at which time she underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.  The section removed from her brain was considerable and left her no option for any additional surgeries should a reoccurrence happen.  She enjoyed a few years in remission but her cancer aggressively returned in 2011. 

Joey went through a tough regimen at John Hopkins in Baltimore, MD with daily treatments of radiation and chemotherapy for five consecutive weeks.  She has a setback after the 3rd treatment when she suffered multi seizures leaving her speech impaired and limited ability to use her right hand.  Even so, Joey has never lost her smile.

Her dedicated husband, Kevin Selner, and the rest of her Super Friends are throwing a series of fundraising events called the Wonder Woman Tour.

This site was set up to keep friends and family updated on Joey's treatment.  It will also provide an avenue for those who wish to donate, and can not make it to one of the fundraising events, to do so.  All money raised will help them out with medical, travel, and rehabilitation expenses.

Thank you for your continued love and support!

April 4, 2013 - Wonder Woman Update

The team of doctors and therapists at the nursing and rehabilitation facility made comments to her immediate family members that Joey is such an inspiration to all of us and continues to work very hard every day.

Joey treatment plan is to work with OT, PT, and ST. She receives a print out each night of her next day treatment plan with each therapist.

Rehabilitation can be a very important part of the treatment plan. The goals of rehabilitation depend on the person's needs and how the tumor has affected daily activities. The health care team makes every effort to help the patient return to normal activities as soon as possible. Several types of therapists can help and here are some examples of what they focus on:

> Occupational therapists. Occupational therapists help patients learn to manage activities of daily living, such as eating, using the toilet, bathing, and dressing.

> Physical therapists. Brain tumors and their treatment may cause paralysis. They may also cause weakness and problems with balance. Physical therapists help patients regain strength and balance.

> Speech therapists. Speech therapists help patients who have trouble speaking, or expressing thoughts.

In addition, Joey will remain on receiving Lovenox injections twice a day in her stomach and closely monitored for her blood clots.
We need more super prayers for our Wonder Woman Joey and her entire family!!!

Joey and Kevin love you all very much.

Great News!!! The CAT scan showed no bleeding on the brain from the Heparin blood thinner for the past 24 hours. The next steps on the road to recovery for our WWJ are to now put Joey on a blood thinner injection called Lovenox. She will be receiving Lovenox injections every 12 hours starting at 8pm this evening, and next injection at 8am tomorrow, 3/28/13. The doctors have ordered another CAT scan for around mid day to see how she handles this blood thinner. If all goes well with this new blood thinner she will be released sometime tomorrow evening.

We need all of your friends and family to please provide super prayer powers for our WWJ and her entire family!!!

***9PM UPDATE***

Joey has been admitted to Christiana Hospital. Her super husband is right by her side and wanted to let all our super friends know that they greatly appreciate all of your warm thoughts and prayers!

Joeys EKG came back normal for heart and X- Ray looks good with no fluids on the chest. The CAT scan shows no current bleeding and both the Oncology teams from John Hopkins and Christiana Care will be re-eval the pros / cons for adding a possible low dose of blood thinner since two new segmental blood clots
were found on her left lung - one upper and one lower branch both are not on a main artery. The blood clot on her right lung is still present but showing improvement from the scan.

IF the plan is to go with Heparin blood thinner then a repeat CAT scan will be performed in 24 hrs to determine next steps.

We need more super prayers for our Wonder Woman Joey and her entire family!!!

Joey and Kevin love you all very much

Friends and Family

Joey was able to get out of the house yesterday for a little bit and have a beautiful luncheon over her mama's new home with her super husband. She is resting and doing some light PT exercises to keep her muscles moving.

She has her in-home therapy sessions scheduled out for next few weeks with PT (Physical Therapy), OT (Occupational Therapy), and ST (Speech Therapy).

Joey's PT is helping them setup appointment for her fitting of an AFO (Ankle Foot Orthosis) for her right foot in order to treat foot drop and hoping to have this setup by the end of next week or following at the latest. In addition, she is wearing a sling and find it very useful, especially since the immobilization of her right hand and arm helps reduce the amount of pain. There hopes are that with the OT therapy sessions she will gradually regain the ability to use her right hand and arm again.

Our WWJ is a fighter and with ALL of your daily prayers and warm thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Friends and Family

Our Wonder Woman Joey is battling her 3rd fight with brain cancer and this past week she and her husband spent at the Christiana Hospital due to her developing blood clots in her leg and lung. She then had to go on blood thinners and began to bleed in her brain but the doctors were able to stop it in time. Next, she needed to still capture the blood clots so an IVC Filter device procedure was done with success. WWJ and her super husband are both home and she is resting.

Can you please help us and share our Wonder Woman Tour 2013 page with all your friends, family, and business colleagues? We would love to have more people join our 'alliance' in order to continue to bring us more super positive prayer powers.
