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.

I underwent open heart surgery to remove the cardiac angiosarcoma on 11/21/2019. Thank you to God, my medical team and my family. I have received so many gifts and remain so blessed. I was discharged 6 days after surgery, this gave me the opportunity to celebrate THANKSGIVING with my family in Houston. Although it was not our traditional celebration it was the best. Now the journey continues, they were not able to remove all the cancer but I am hopeful and remain faithful that the plan for the post surgical chemo will help my chances of survival against this awful cancer. The continued support and prayers mean so much to me and my family.

I received cycle 6 of chemo on 10/28/19, my birthday. This is the best gift I could of asked for because I didn’t know a few months ago if I would make it this far. I feel so blessed. My mom has returned to Jacksonville to help take care of Brennan and Connor while Arnold comes to Houston to help me get ready for the big day. Surgery is tomorrow 11/21/19 also a BIG gift towards getting better and healed from the angiosarcoma. I am so thankful for all the support, encouragement and continued prayers.
