Cancer For Christmas

My 89-year-old mother has stage 3 cervical cancer.

We thought she was starting her radiation therapy today but, no, they just did some more imaging and will start her on the weekly chemotherapy and daily radiation in a few days. The weekly chemo and daily radiation treatments will run 5 to 7 weeks.

For privacy reasons, I won't be providing a lot of details about mom's case or prognosis but if you are a close friend or family member, reply to me privately and I'll answer questions or provide details not included here.

As for the Higginbotham At Large blog, look for announcements and changes in 2012.
