Minden alumnus Amanda Mildfeldt Brabec has been fighting cancer for three years. A fundraiser to help with her medical bills and any future on going medical treatments has now been established.
Brabec was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid cancer on February 5, 2013. Since then, she has had three surgeries and two radioactive iodine treatments. A third round of treatments may be required depending on what the latest test results show in six weeks.
Brabec’s latest surgery was on May 25. The procedure included a full major neck dissection down into the top of both her shoulders. She will require months of physical therapy as a result of the intrusion.
