Member Story – Pam Broadus

Leigh Borland was at her lowest point. On November 14, 2005 she had gone into the hospital for a hysterectomy. The doctors thought they had found a mass on her ovaries. What they actually found was a 5-6 cm primary tumor on her colon and two smaller tumors nearby; the pathology report listed it as “unknown malignant potential.” The oncologist decided to send slides out to the Cleveland Clinic and got a GIST confirmation.
