Fawn Lee went in later that day to discuss the X-ray with her doctor. He showed her an X-ray that was obviously not a normal chest image. Her heart was abnormally large which lead to concern by both doctor and patient. Fawn’s doctor immediately sent her over to get blood tests. Test results came back with numbers that were off the charts compared to a normal healthy blood test. Fawn, looking at her watch, knew she had to go relieve her babysitter. So, filled with dread, armed with an X-ray that showed an abnormally large heart and blood tests that indicated that something was really wrong, she put on a large smile for her children and went home to be a mother.
This all occurred on Friday afternoon. By Sunday, Fawn had to be admitted to the emergency room due to difficulty breathing. On February 10, 2011, the diagnosis was made. Fawn Lee, mother of 3 children under the age of 5 and devoted wife, was diagnosed with Late-Stage Stage IV Non-Small Cell Andenocarcinoma.
