Recipient Profile

Becky
I found an unusual area on my breast in February, 2003. The Dr. didn't think it was anything, but after going back a couple times, he agreed to do a biopsy of the area. It showed breast cancer. I had a mastectomy and chemo for 4 months and eventually got better. I spent the next 4 years worrying about reoccurrence. Then, this past year, I kind of let it go and let my guard down. My family was very excited that I had reached that 5 year mark. I was too. Thrilled. But, one month after that date, I was having a routine gallbladder ultrasound in preparation for unrelated surgery and they found a spot on my liver. I had further testing and it is, once again cancer. It is inoperable, but I am on chemo. My Dr won't say how long I'll have chemo. For an indeterminate amount of time, he says. We are just hoping the tumor will shrink and I can have radio frequency ablation, where they basically "cook" the tumor with microwaves. It has to be small enough, though. I didn't wear a wig before when I had chemo. It was just for a few months in the summer last time, but this time...I don't know how long it will be. My clinical trial nurse said it could be years. I sure hope not. But, the chance of chemo working and shrinking it is sure better than the alternative. lol. I'll stick with the chemo, if that's the only choice. My nurse said I should cut my hair this week, as it will start to fall out soon. I have been admiring my hair (usually I think it's a pain) but now, I look at it in the mirror kind of wistfully. I hope I can keep it as a wig. Amy has been such a sweetheart getting this together. I know I shouldn't have been, but I've been blown away by the love I've seen shown by family and friends. I really feel loved and that helps so much. I don't feel like I'm doing this alone.

Love
Rebecca

Amy and Mark Rutledge
Many of you know that each year Mark, the girls and I raise funds and participate in the "North Texas Race for the Cure" in honor of my aunt, Rebecca Clancy. Becky is a breast cancer survivor and hit her five year mark earlier this year. Unfortunately, this past July she found out that she once again has breast cancer. It has metastasized to her liver and surrounding lymphnodes. Her doctors have recommanded and experimental chemotherapy treatment that will last at least a year. Last time my aunt went through chemo she lost all her hair and had to wear hats and scarves, which she did with dignity and grace. This time i would like to help her have a custom wig made out of her own hair, so she can keep a sense of self during this overwhelming time. Please donate and help us raise the money to make this dream a reality. No amount is too small. Please keep Becky and the Clancy family in your thoughts in prayers during this time. Sincerely, Amy Kettrey-Rutledge
