I Hate making posts about bad news but it’s bound to happen sometimes. We got a call from my doctor the other day to inform us that the CT scan showed a spot in my left arm. Meaning my Cancer has spread to my left arm. It’s been extremely painful to move my arm and I need pain medication 24/7 to stay comfortable. I will be starting radiation on Tuesday to blast the Cancer in my arm. The protocol is the same as my lungs, 5 days of intensive radiation and then lots of recovery time. They say I shouldn’t have many side effects other then some pain in my arm. Which is great because I won’t have to deal with nausea like last time. I know this is a bit of a set back but we have a plan and were gonna get through it just like every other bump in the road.
The CT Scan also showed much regression in the large tumour we were concerned about which is great!
But for now it’s time to focus on blasting the Cancer in my arm and continue working on my lungs! Thank you everyone for always being there for me through everything! This has been a crazy journey and I’m looking forward to positive scans ahead!
You are truly awe-inspiring! I am 24 years old, and was a competitive figure skater for the majority of my life and now, I spend my days on the ice coaching at my small-town arena. As a figure skater you learn that no matter how many times you fall and smash your hip or bum on the ice learning the jumps, you only have one choice…and that is to get up, brush off the snow, and do it again. Keep fighting Carley, and always keep your eye on the goal…one day you will land that jump and it will be the greatest feeling in the world. Sending all the strength, love, grace and passion ~ from one skater to another.
Thinking of you and your family today as you start your treatment. Having a plan is half the battle. Knowing you have the love and support of so many will hopefully help you as you “work that plan” With best wishes and continued prayers, Janet and Doug 243/
The cancer is scared of you Carley – that’s why it’s trying to hide in your arm. You will win this fight. Kick its ass! Love Aslan
We’re rooting for you – even if your left arm is being a brat, you still have that right arm to deliver a big right-hook. Keep fighting!!! We are all cheering you on behind the scenes and sending all of our positive thoughts your way. All the best, Sue & family.
You’re a beautiful and brave young lady and you have the determination and the courage to put your cancer right where it belongs. Love and hugs and prayers to you.
Carley, I know you are going to kick this in the “butt”!!! As hard as the next little while will be, you will come out on top and only get stronger, you are an one hell of a fighter and continue to inspire xo
You continue to inspire with your strength and determination, keep fighting! You are truly a beautiful person inside and out.
