TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org Story: Trina Finds Strength During Cancer Battle

Good Morning, My name is Trina and I was blessed to have met Bret 3 times in 6 months. I first met him on June 22, 2013 at Nutty Jerry’s in Winnie, TX, then a few Months Later at the Concert Pub North in Houston on Oct. 5, 2013 and again on Dec. 26, 2013 at the Concert Pub. The First time I met Bret I had just finished up 4 hard rounds of chemo for lung cancer and had had my left lower lung removed. I was called a stage 1 2b before the chemo and surgery! I stayed cancer free for about 6 month when new ct scan show 3 nodule on my lungs. They watched them hoping they were just caused from infection, so next test set for Nov. was pet scan and it showed the nodules have grown and now it’s not just 3, it’s a total of 11 nodules. A needle biopsy was done a few days later and the test showed that the cancer has reared it’s ugly head once more and I am now stage 4 lung cancer and the fight is back on.  I put off my chemo that should have started on Dec. 18th which was my 50th Birthday and the show to see Bret was the 26th Of Dec. I knew I would be too sick to attend the show, so I put it off. I celebrated my birthday with all my girlfriends and got meet Bret again. I had just been in hospital a few days before Christmas, so I gave him a wrist band from my hospital stay for lung cancer awareness and I gave the band members one too. They were all just stand up cool guys, I was happy to meet them all. What a great birthday, holiday bash! Just did my chemo on January 8th, I have 5 more rounds to go every 3 weeks. I’m hoping the BMB will be back in the Houston area soon!

Thanks again, I’m keeping the faith! Life rocks and cancer sucks!

Much Love,

Trina
