ELIZABETH SCHEFFER NOV.25 1939 - OCT 27 2006.
This is my husband and I on September 13, 2008 at my daughter's wedding. It was seven days later that I found the lump and my life was changed forever!
I was working in Las Vegas when I got fever the 3rd time in 1 month.
On the third time it came with a pain in the right side of my belly.
After a CAT scan I was sent to the hospital for appendix removal (8/13). The sugery was not so difficult and I was back on my feet the next day.
Upon the removal the doctor saw a strange yellowish color in the appendix and colon.
The biopsy came back positive for cancer. I had a 1.8cm tumor in the appendix.
I stayed 5 days in the hospital because it wasn't a laprascopic surgery.
The total cost for the insurance was 39,800USD.
I was told that I will have to have a colon reduction surgery. Since I don't have any family in Vegas, I flew to Miami to be with some family.
