October 17, 2014

Doctors often use similes to describe the size of tumors.
Just ask Elizabeth "Betsy" Edinger Lupole, a James City native who resides on Park Avenue in Kane with her husband, Terry and their 13-year-old daughter, Kayla.
Early in 2013, doctors found a cancerous tumor “as big as a softball” in Betsy’s leg.
Then, just five months ago, doctors found a tumor “as big as an orange” in her ovarian area.
Even with numerous treatments and therapy, the 41-year-old woman said she is in “constant pain.”
“I’m tired all the time,” she said. “I have trouble sleeping.”
