AFTER 6 YEARS DIANE (LADY DI) WENDRICKS' CANCER HAS RETURNED. WE ARE RAISING MONEY FOR DIANE'S SECOND BATTLE AGAINST BREAST CANCER.
Diane began her fight against Cancer when her friend Cindy was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive Cancer while pregnant. Diane devoted everyday for nearly 6 months to care for her friend and newborn daughter.
Cindy ultimately lost her battle with Cancer.
Diane's role changed from Caregiver to Mother of a newborn. She has devoted her life to raise Erin who now, is a beautiful and healthy 12 year old girl. Five years after the birth of Erin, Diane faced another challenge. She was diagnosed with Stage III Breast Cancer. Her Cancer metastasized to her lymph nodes. Sixteen of eighteen lymph nodes tested positive and were removed along with a lumpectomy.
After 6 years of being Cancer free, Diane's Cancer has returned. Her Pet Scan on August 27, 2013 showed that thoracic surgery is needed again to remove a malignancy. Her second battle against cancer began with the surgery on November 20, 2013.
Diane has exhausted her life's savings trying to stay healthy. Diane embraced a holistic approach to her post surgery treatment that managed to keep her cancer free up until now. Unfortunately, the nutritional supplements and the other holistic practices that Diane has used for the past 6 years are not covered by her insurance.
So, we are making an effort to help Diane...just as she has helped others throughout her life. Any contribution, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, the Family and Friends of Lady Di.
