At age 46, the last thing Tammy Douglas, a wife and mother of two, expected to hear from her doctor was 'cancer'. After experiencing a seizure, undergoing diagnostic testing and several medical consultations, Tammy underwent brain surgery in October of this year. It was after her surgery that she recieved a tragic diagnosis - Stage IIIIV glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer. Tammy is currently recieving physical, pccupational and speech therapies due to the side-effects of her surgery. She will begin chemotherapy and radiation treatments in November.
Following this life-chagning diagnosis, Tammy and her family must now struggle with a devastating financial hardship. Brain surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, combined with the loss of work and everyday living expenses, have added and additional burden to this family already facing unimaginable circumstances.
Tammy is a loving wife and mother, a compassionate registered nurse, and a caring friend to many. She adores her family, dogs and horses, and has always put others before herself. She has a passion for making someones day a little brighter. It is now our turn to make her day a little brighter as she adjusts to the challenges she is facing.
On January 25, 2013, we are holding a benefit at the Milan VFW to help alleviate stress to the family by offsetting some of her medical expenses.
