Tressie was born with a genetic disorder and has had multiple medical hurdles to over come in her 12 years on this earth. She was diagnosed on August 15, 2011 with RMS of the uterus. Since that time she is continuing her chemotherapy and we have gotten pathology reports that confirmed our worst fears. This type of cancer is characteristic of RMS but, they have not seen this type of tumor before. It has three different types of cells, embroynal, sclerosing, and alveolar. We take this day by day and hope for the best.
