About Shannon Underwood

This ribbon was created by Clay Underwood on March 23, 2012

Thanks to everyone for their help with this endeavor. It is a daily battle, and we are grateful for your support. Shannon was diagnosed in December 2010 and went through 6 months of chemotherapy and 1 month of radiation. The cancer came back in 2011, and she went through an autologous bone marrow transplant in March 2012. Unfortunately, in October 2012 the cancer came back and she needed a donor. Her sister was a match and she went through a 2nd transplant in January 2013. The cancer returned in July 2013 and we are devastated. The doctors are looking what else they can do at this point and I will continue to fight. Everyone who has been there with us throughout this journey, we cannot tell you how much we appreciate your support, thoughts and well wishes. We are grateful for family, friends, co-workers, students and everyone else that has helped us maintain a positive outlook. Thanks again for your help and we appreciate everything! Shannon had a Donor Lymphocyte Infusion (DLI) Procedure on November 12th 2013 and is currently recovering. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with her and her family during this time. December 9th, Shannon was admitted to the hospital as a result of complications of the DLI procedure and spent 37 days in the hospital before being released on Jan.15th 2014. She spent the holidays in the hospital isolated from friends and family and is now out of the hospital, but still continues to receive treatment 2-3 times a week. It will be a long, long road to recovery, but her spirits are high as a result of the generosity and well wishes she has continued to receive.

Shannon has been fighting graft vs host of the lungs and her lung capacity has been going down. it is making it hard for her to do simple tasks and she is on oxygen 100% of the time as a result of this.

Shannon passed away peacefully on June 3rd, 2015. She was free of cancer, but graft vs. host of the lungs ultimately took her life. She passed away at home with family and friends surrounding her. Due to the outstanding medical bills that are still coming in, any support to help Clay pay these debts down to help him out during these times.

Please continue to pray and spread the story about her and her fight to beat the cancer. Thanks so much for all of your support against this disease.
