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 âas big as a softballâ in Betsyâs leg.
Then, just five months ago, doctors found a tumor âas big as an orangeâ in her ovarian area.
Even with numerous treatments and therapy, the 41-year-old woman said she is in âconstant pain.â
âIâm tired all the time,â she said. âI have trouble sleeping.â
