Our beloved Heidy was recently diagnosed with an Angiosarcoma. This is an extremely rare tumor, therefore making it difficult to standardize therapy.

Angiosarcoma was first identified in 1934, however since that time minimal progress has been made to improve survival rates and treatment plans. This is an aggressive and often fatal prognosis, therefore requiring an aggressive approach. Because of the rarity of this diagnosis, expertise with this condition is also minimal. Heidy and her husband Arnold have started traveling to seek out these experts. Due to the fragile state of this tumor she is unable to fly, therefore requiring all travel to be done by ground.

Arnold, Brennan and Connor have returned home to Jacksonville to start school. Heidy and her mom remain in Houston to continue chemotherapy treatment. A recent follow up with Dr. Ravi and APRN Sudha shows the cardiac Angiosarcoma tumor is responding and getting smaller. The third round of chemotherapy starts this week. Heidy continues to put her trust in God for continued healing. Heidy and her family remain thankful for everyone’s prayers and support. They remain grateful and humbled by everyone’s outpouring generosity.
