So sorry to hear this. Just one round of chemo and radiation (simultaneous) was enough to make me lose 35 pounds and almost all my muscle mass. It took me several months just to recover enough to get back to work. 13 rounds?? Wow - that was one strong individual. I hope others look at her as inspirational.
