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 â€śas big as a softballâ€ť in Betsyâ€™s leg.
Then, just five months ago, doctors found a tumor â€śas big as an orangeâ€ť in her ovarian area.
Even with numerous treatments and therapy, the 41-year-old woman said she is in â€śconstant pain.â€ť
â€śIâ€™m tired all the time,â€ť she said. â€śI have trouble sleeping.â€ť
