* * * A LETTER FROM BRANDON - LAUREN'S STORY * * *
Hello to all,
I would like to start at the beginning and tell everyone the story on what Lauren and our family are going through, during this hard time. I would like to take the time for those who find themselves taking the time to look at this page. Let me begin telling you about Lauren. Lauren is a kind and pure soul when it comes to Lauren all her friends and family can only describe her as the one who is always smiling and filling the room with light and happiness. She is my best friend and soulmate. I was one of the lucky few to find her at an early age. We met my sophomore year of high school. We have shared almost 15 years together and been married for 9 years. She helped make me the man I have become and made me a better person. We were blessed to make a beautiful daughter Madelyn Brooke Nudo who is just two.
On Dec. 30th we rushed Lauren to the ER complaining of pain in her abdomen we stayed at the hospital for 23 hours not knowing the issue with many tests conducted. At 11 pm Lauren was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer and had emergency surgery. At 3 am the surgeon informed me that they removed 2 tumors and her colon. They also informed me of a mass on her liver and that there was a bacterial infection throughout her abdomen. They informed us it was stage IV and non-curable. Finding more masses forming inside her they had to wait another 24 hours for a second surgery to flush out the remaining infection. Not being able to tell my best or talk with her to figure out the next step was the hardest day of my life. With multiple breakdowns thinking negatively thinking I might be that single dad raising a two-year-old all alone. I had time to accept this was not a bad dream. Many people prayed for us which I felt in my heart and gave me the strength to be strong for her and toss out any negative thoughts. With no more tears I was able to inform Lauren when she came around of the road we were gonna have to go down. I promised I would not leave her side no matter what and we would give it everything we had so she would be here to raise our daughter and grow old together. I told her we will take it "One day at a time" Lauren is on her way to recovery and fights every day. This is a struggle and I wish this disease upon no one in life. With love, prayers, and positive energy we will beat this. Only the strong survive and Cancer chose the wrong one. She is a fighter and I am blessed to call her my wife.
Thank you for the prayers and the donations and the time to bring Lauren into your lives. I hope she touches you in some positive way.
With Thanks and Love,
The Nudo Family
The Hanchette Family
We ask for help for Laurens treatment to get her back to being the mom Madelyn so badly needs.
Help spread the word!
