It is with much sadness that we report that 36 year old Karen Barnes Medley has tragically lost her battle with pulmonary RRP and lung cancer.
[Excerpted from a “GoFundMe” page for Karen]
Karen was diagnosed with RRP as a child. Throughout her childhood, she had countless surgeries on her vocal cords and had been in remission since the age of 10. Recently she went to the doctor as she had a faint, lingering cough that just wouldn’t quit. Her world was turned upside down when she found out the RRP came back, went into her lungs and converted into cancer.
She fought the disease fiercely and leaves behind her husband and two beautiful children.
