Reaching out to a Community of Support

Welcome to Latrice’s Carelines page! Thank you for coming to support Latrice in her journey of recovery. Here you can:

Latrice is a beautiful wife and mother who has spent her life doing as much good for others as she can.  Seven years ago in 2014 as a result getting her yearly mammogram, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  To treat that cancer, Latrice had surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.  After 6 trying months, she was, by God's grace, declared cancer free.  For a long time she did quite well.  This year, she was experiencing unusual fatique and went to see her oncologist who had been following her with at least biannual visits since she was cured.  He drew blood and found her to be anemic with an elevated white blood cell count which contained an unusually high percentage of immature lymphocytes.  She was referred to the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri for treatment because of their extensive experience in treating leukemias.  She was urgently admitted to the hospital where a bone marrow biopsy was performed to confirm the diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  The next day she was started on i.v. chemotherapy to attack and kill the malignant lymphoblasts.  She has had an excellent response to treatment so far.  A bone marrow transplant is planned in the next couple of months to replace the normal blood-forming cells that were destroyed along with the cancer cells and to continue to fight any residual cancerous cells that may be in her body.  With God's grace, and her medical team's assistance, we are expecting a full recovery to the glory of God.  We are thankful to all who are morally, spiritually and financially helping to undergird us during this difficult time.
