The family and friends of Kelly Hess are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support.

On Sept. 20th, 2012 I went in for an MRI and CT Scan at the request of my opthalmologist after experiancing changes in my vision. The MRI showed what looked like tumors in my brain, lungs, liver, and cancer in my bones. I was immediatly admitted in the hospital and a biopsy was taken the next day. After what was a very long weekend, I learned that I have stage 4 breast cancer.

I started radiation for the tumors in my brain the next day and will be finishing up the three weeks of radiation on Oct. 15th. YAY!

The cancer was shown to be almost 100% estrogen based so while I am undergoing radiation I am also taking estrogen blocking drugs which will hopefully shrink the rest of the tumors in my body without the need for chemotherapy. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
