Wyalusing Mayor Has 'Angels' on Her Side in Battle with Cancer - by WesSkillings - 11/29/2007 Wyalusing Rocket
“Cancer has strengthened my faith,” she says today. “I’m not afraid of dying,but I’m in no hurry and have this inner feeling that God hasn’t finished withme yet on earth.” Bobbi Lord

Bobbi Lord comes by her roots naturally. Although she haslived away from Wyalusing longer than she has been here, the first 10 years ofher life and most of the last 10 have been right here in her hometown. Born BarbaraKeeler in a community shaped by generations of her ancestors, including morethan a century of family ownership of this newspaper, Bobbi is also the Mayorof Wyalusing, and not the only member of the family to hold that office. Thelatest honor bestowed upon her is bittersweet. She has been chosen as theHonorary Chair of the 2008 Wyalusing Relay for Life, and that will becomeofficial at a kickoff event for the cancer fundraiser on Wednesday, Dec. 12.That’s the sweet part, of course, and then there is the part about havingcancer. She is both a survivor and a cancer patient, and the last year has beena mix of highs and lows. “Cancer has strengthened my faith,” she saystoday. “I’m not afraid of dying, but I’m in no hurry and have this inner feelingthat God hasn’t finished with me yet on earth.” The past year, startingback in October 2006 when she was diagnosed with lung cancer, has been the mosttrying in her life, but she says it also helped her understand what “an amazingplace” Wyalusing is. She has family and friends here and, in fact, her youngersister, Sherri, returned to Wyalusing first, back in 1995 following the deathof their mother, Elinor, in 1994. Their father, a genuine military hero, diedin a plane crash near Gettysburg in the summer of 1979 after returning to hishometown Wyalusing. “This was always home to us. I love this place somuch.” She can say this now, though confessing that when she was younger, thethought of returning to Wyalusing to live wouldn’t have occurred to her. Itseems their whole family has followed the lead of their parents. Older brother,Jay, returned to Wyalusing for a few years before moving back to Texas. Jaywould become a casualty of cancer himself, passing away in June of 2005. WithBobbi and Jay being barely a year apart in age, losing him was even morepersonal for her, and little did she know cancer would intrude emphaticallyinto her life literally months after mourning her brother’s death. It allstarted with a bad cold in the early fall of 2006. She couldn’t seem to shakeit. It hung on well beyond the tenure of even the peskiest bronchial condition,and she had an ominous feeling something really bad was coming. Because of thatdread, her initial diagnosis was actually welcomed. It was pneumonia, she wasinformed. But it wasn’t long before the truth came out with the diagnosis oflung cancer. Her year’s journey with cancer has been replete with ups anddowns. It has included learning while she was still being treated for non-smallcell lung cancer that there was cancer in her brain in the form of three smalltumors. Month of treatments for first one, then the other, ended with a joyouspronouncement in September of this year that she was cancer free. However, somesix weeks after that, from a follow-up MRI and CAT Scan, she was informed thatseveral tumors were now in the liver. It was back to chemotherapy treatments,with some good news on the side that both the lungs and brain remained clear ofcancer. She was to have her second “chemo” treatment for the liver cancer onMonday of this week, but the white cell count was a little low and that waspostponed. “I have been healthy all of my life, until this cancer thingcame along,” she says as if talking about catching a flu bug. “I learned that Ihave been blessed with a strong immune system.” The immune system thathas served her so well has taken a beating, she concedes, and she sometimesworries whether it will hold up. However, her other trump card is the excellentand caring treatment she says she has received from Guthrie specialists, namelyDr. Jeffrey P. Allerton, who presides over her chemotherapy, and Dr. GaryProulx, head of radiation oncology. “They make every patient feel likethe most important person in the world,” she says of the staffs of bothdepartments. Bobbi endured two rounds of radiation—back in mid-March whenshe went every day of the week for strategically applied doses of radiation tozap the lung cancer and, after the brain cancer diagnosis, when she endured 15sessions. The treatments have done their job, but they have also takensomething of a toll. One of the chemo co*cktails has significantly robbed her ofher hearing, requiring hearing aids equipped with mute buttons, which, shejokes, may come in handy for those she doesn’t want to listen to. The radiationtreatments for the brain cancer appear to have made her hair loss permanent.That’s something no woman wants to hear, but she’s got the wigs to counterthat. Lung cancer almost always starts in the lining of the bronchi, and it maytake years to develop, with no symptoms or solid evidence, such as tumors, tobetray its existence. After pre-cancerous becomes true cancer, that’s whenblood vessels form to nourish cancer cells which form a tumor that eventuallybecomes large enough to detect on an x-ray. Then there is the element ofmetastasis, which is the process allowing cancer cells to break away and go toother parts of the body. Since lung cancer takes so long to detect, significantspreading may have taken place by the time it has been diagnosed. Non-smallcell lung cancer, or NSCLC, is the most common type, and smoking is a majorcause. For Bobbi, who quit a few months before she was diagnosed with lungcancer after smoking most of her adult life, it goes beyond the obvious regretof putting her health at risk. She admits feeling guilty and rather foolish forsmoking despite all the evidence out there that it was shortening her life. Oneof the low points of her journey was awakening from surgery that was supposedto remove her lung cancer and being told that it had become too large forsurgical removal. She says that if she hadn’t still been groggy from the drugs,she might not have taken the bad news so well. By the time she had returnedhome, however, the disappointment had taken its toll. “I broke down then whennobody could see me,” she says. The other low part was being told she had braincancer and, upon receiving that word from her doctor’s office that this was thecase, she was told that she needed to get there as soon as possible. “Iwas thinking that they must be expecting me to die at any time,” she recalledof that trip to Sayre. It turned out they just wanted to make certain she wasproperly informed before they proceeded with an amended course of treatment.She says that more than a year of dealing with cancer offers plenty ofoccasions to contemplate her mortality, especially when she is alone.Ironically, she is inspired every time she goes to the oncology department. Asign on one of the secretary’s computers proclaims: “If God brings you to it,He will bring you through it.” It is a powerful reminder facing her everytime she sits and awaits her next treatment. “I see that every time I go forchemo, and I think of it often in between. It’s true. He is getting me throughit. I have lost a few battles during the year, but I sincerely feel like I’mgoing to win the war.” When you have faced three different cancerdiagnoses in the course of a year, it could be easy to start feeling sorry foryourself. Indeed, Bobbi admits she has been her own guest of honor at anoccasional pity party, but those periods of frustration and doubt areshort-lived. She credits a lot of that to the special place she calls home.“Sometimes I have to be reminded that I am a walking miracle. I’ll be feelingsorry for myself because of aches and pains and then remember that a year ago Ihad a cancerous tumor that was too big to operate on. I thought that was adeath sentence. “Instead, I found hundreds of people praying for me and takingcare of me and today I’m walking around feeling pretty good. God sent me lotsof angels to make a miracle.”
