James Quigley, a lover of the great American outdoors, ice cold brews and deep fried chicken.
After an impromtu trip to the oral surgeon to remove wisdom teeth that subsequently sent him on a whirlwind tour of Boston doctors appointments, James was diagnosed on August 26, 2011 with Malignant Pheochromocytoma. James has been living with a softball size (11x12x13cm) tumor on his adrenal gland, that was involved with both his left kidney and vena cava. Unfortunately, the tumor has also spread to multiple nodes on his lungs. The major tumor has been secreting hormones that have spiked his blood pressure to a frightening 240/120, luckily found by the oral surgeon who sent him to the ER.
The fight against this extremely rare cancer commenced on August 31, 2011 during a long and formidable surgery where the softball tumor was successfully removed. As James prepares to battle with the cancer remaining on his lungs, the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from him. Pheochromocytomas have no cure and the road to partial remission will be long. Your support is greatly appreciated, as James will not be able to return to work to maintain insurance coverage. We can’t change his prognosis, but we can support his progress. Let’s conquer cancer together!
Please send any cards or well wishes to 1 Westinghouse Plz #220, Hyde Park, MA 02136. James would love to hear from you. All support, positive thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.
