    Posted: Mar 30 2009 at 4:18pm
Becky Perkins is 29 years old, originally from Middletown and now lives in Trenton with her long time boyfriend Joe and two children ages 10 and 2. Becky graduated from Middletown High School and attended Miami University. Before being diagnosed Becky was working full time and had just started nursing school in January.

Her Story:


Becky had been experiencing back pain for several weeks. She had gone to the ER and to her family doctor. They dismissed it as pulled muscles, etc. and prescribed pain relievers, anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers.

On Friday, Feb. 20, she was experiencing a sharp, stabbing pain in her back. She went to the ER. The doctor noticed that Becky's liver area was very tender. They ran a CT-scan and discovered spots on her liver and a mass in her breast. She had noticed the mass a few months ago and thought she would take care of it later. She was most concerned with the back pain.

After numerous tests, CT-scans, MRI's, x-ray's, they have diagnosed it as breast cancer that has spread to her liver, one lung, and her spine. The brain and heart are fine and the liver is functioning normally. There's one tumor on her spine very close to her spinal cord that they are very concerned about.

Becky was taken back to the ER yesterday and they admitted her due to an infection. She had treatments scheduled for today, however they have been cancelled which will set her back.

Her doctor's have said that she will get better but it is going to be a long process.(approx 8 months)

Becky is unable to work and Joe had his hours cut at work before Becky was diagnosed. Family & friends are planning a Benefit for Becky to help her with expenses. I will update you with those details when they are available. Thank You.

Please keep Becky in your prayers.

Mom;    I went to the Dr on Monday for my c t scan. I am very happy to say my Dr told me I am very lucky. The scan showed NO CANCER in my body at all. So tell Becky she can do the same. Tell her to put her love and faith in God, he will cure her to just like he did me. We are praying very long and hard for Becky,remember she can call me anytime God bless you.

Mom;   If you will call me and give me Becky,s phone number, I will call and check on her and talk with her? I will try to cheer her up some. Some times it helps to talk about cancer, how the treatments are going. I know it helped me to talk about it. May God bless.       Tom

Becky is doing well, she has been able to get out of the house and run a few errands.
The other day she was even going through her closets to prepare for the Garage Sale!
Becky has been upset about her hair loss, but recently got a wig and I think she feels a little better about it. (I hope she don't kill me for mentioning this!)
 
So happy you are doing well Impala you have been in our thoughts and prayers also.
 
We (the family) have been working on the Garage Sale & the Benefit.
Again, if you have anything to donate:
 
We are seeking many forms of donations: monetary, food, beverages, gift certificates, raffle and auction items.
 
Thanks Again!

Stress with financial issues and her insurance expiring soon is getting to her- as if she doesn't have enough to worry about.
Impala-sorry to hear about the lump in your neck. Keep up the fight! We will continue to pray for you as well.

You can let me know which one you want to use it for. Please tell Becky to hang in there and fight like hell. Tell her to get all the rest she can get, I know it wears you out real fast. We are praying every day that she gets better. All my love and GODS LOVE goes out to her. If you want you can call me at 513- 217- 7393.

Impala-Can't remember if we have hot wheels, but I will save them if we do. Sorry to hear of your test results. I have faith in Dr. Malcom, you are in the right hands. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day as well. Becky was looking forward to today because this is about when she can taste her food again after Monday's treatments.
 
Hope to see some of you there!
