Fair’s Cancer Recovery Journey
Please visit our GoFundMe site to donate.
On the evening of July 5, my wife recommended I take our daughter (Fair) to the emergency room because of the abdominal pain she was experiencing. The ER doctor discovered a tumor twice the size of a grapefruit in her abdomen and small tumors in her lungs. She was transferred to another hospital where she had a biopsy done; the surgery involved the removal of some of the tumor tissue from one of her lungs which was then analyzed for possible malignancy. Afterwards, she was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian (immature terratoma) germ cell cancer. For a week, she remained in the hospital recovering from her surgery and waiting to receive the official results from the biopsy so she could begin her treatment. On July 14, she finally received the official results from her biopsy, and the doctors gave her the green light to begin chemotherapy the next morning. The treatments will shrink the tumors in her body over the course of several months, and once the last cycle is complete, any cancer that remains will be removed through surgery.
Fair’s spirit during this time is amazing. She has had several difficult days already but has fought through them bravely as a result of her relationship with Jesus, her faith, and the support and prayers of friends and family. Her mom and I have started this blog to keep everyone updated on her progress as she fights this disease.
