Roberta is in Stage IV cancer. The information we have received is based upon a variety of analyses and has been interpreted by the Kaiser oncology team. A number of professionals have already consulted on her condition, but we will continue to pursue additional opinions.
Roberta will receieve palliative care that focuses on reducing the severity of the symptoms of her cancer. If she receives radiation or chemoteraphy, the goal will be to reduce symptons of the cancer rather than to provide a cure.
These have been the saddedst days of our lives, yet they have been filled with deep joy as well. Roberta knows that she is very deeply loved and appreciated, and looks forward to that day when "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mournting or crying, or pain..." (Revelation 21:4)
