Jodi's journey

In October 2012, Jodi woke up with pain in her abdomen along with night sweats + vomiting. She went to the doctor, where they sent her to get a CT scan. The scan revealed a 12 inch tumor in her right ovary. Emergency surgery was scheduled. The tumor was removed along with several lymph nodes and a radical hysterectomy. A few weeks after surgery the pathology report was ready. Jodi was diagnosed with Ovarian Small Cell Carcinoma of the Hypercalcemic type. This type of cancer is extremely rare and aggressive. While recovering for surgery, Jodi began to lose weight significantly, was throwing up, and had new pain in the abdomen. She was admitted to the hospital where a CT scan was performed. The results showed a new large tumor on a main artery to the heart along with several other small tumors. Chemo was necessary immediately.
