** Update 1/25/2022
Lia’s doing really good. Resting quite a bit and is managing to sleep in the recliner ok. She has to sleep on her back for several months. Jon’s mom, lent her a recliner lift chair. It has been a life saver, because she can’t get up from a laying position. We are cutting back on the pain meds today, hope that goes good. She only has one issue and that is one drain tube has a pulling sensation all of the time. We will be glad when they come out. yesterday was our first change the bandage and shower day. It went really well.
Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers, today was a big day for Lia! She will be in recovery for a while but today was a victory against cancer as it was contained in the duct. Nothing invasive in other tissue and lymph glands are clear. Please continue to keep her and her family in your thoughts as she works down the road to recovery.
Many of you were aware my cousin was scheduled for surgery on December 22. Unfortunately, she has recently tested positive for COVID, thankfully she doing ok but her surgery had to be postponed. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts as this news has been truly devastating as the last thing anyone wants to do with this diagnosis is wait… She is rescheduled for January 21, at that time I will work to keep you all updated on her recovery.In late September of this year, my beautiful cousin Lia Morris, was diagnosed with breast cancer following a routine mammogram. Lia will be undergoing a double mastectomy on December 22nd, with treatment to follow and reconstructive surgery at a much later date. As so many of us know, the cost and effect this disease has on families is not only extremely emotional but also financially draining. Lia and Jon will face major medical expenses that were unexpected, which will impact their family’s life in a big way. Lia is a mental health therapist who gives everything she has to others. She devotes her talents and time to helping those in need in ways most of us cannot imagine. She has a servant’s heart, much like her parents Richard and Donna Perez and her brother Derrick. Now, Lia faces needs of her own that will pull her away from work as she focuses on her faith, healing and recovery. Let’s join together to help ease the burden that comes with cancer treatment. Friends and family, we are asking to surround Lia with support not only in prayer, but also financially, if you are able to do so, so that she can focus on healing and her family.
