A couple weeks back Becker went in to have a saliva gland in her neck removed. The surgeon told us after he removed it that every thing looked fine and no cancer was present. After the biopsy we received word that it was Adenocarcinoma (I think), a cancer that effects mucus-secreting glands. The diagnosis is good I guess, she is Stage 1 and will need to get radiation, but chemo is not needed at this time. Becker had a lower GI and chest x-ray and they all looked good. Not really the best of news but in this day and age it could have been a lot worse. She will be starting radiation within the next month.
We have heard rumors already so I wanted to set the record straight.
