61 single mother
Stage 4 Colon / Liver Cancer
Beate Schiller is 61 years old and currently resides in Placentia, CA. For the past 20 years she has worked in the fitness industry as a one-on-one personal trainer and nutritional counselor. On August 31, 2012 Beate had a gallbladder attack that resulted in emergency gallbladder surgery 4 days later. This is when the doctors found cancer on both lobes of her liver. This resulted in a CAT Scan where they found cancer in her colon. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic colon cancer that has spread to her liver. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy to shrink the cancer at which time they will do surgery and then resume chemotherapy treatment.
Beate has two adult daughters and raised her 19 year old granddaughter since she was born. She has been divorced for 9 years and has worked extremely hard to support herself and her granddaughter. Since being diagnosed with cancer Beate has not been able to work which is a huge financial blow to them.
