Revised: A question has been raised about the condition of the Goble's son Terry, soon to be 7 in March. He is doing just fine.
Ladue High's video coordinator/instructor Don Goble and family have struggled with very serious forms of cancer concerninf his wife Emily. Of course their six year old son is pulling hard for his mom too. Emily has had complex surgery, and there is more uncertainy ahead. This is the way the story has been told:
Yoga teacher, mother, wife, former corporate employee, Emily Goble tested positive for both breast cancer and ovarian cancer genetics. Because her mother has struggled with eight different types of cancer over 25 years and Goble was 87 percent likely to get breast cancer and a highly increased risk for ovarian, she voluntarily opted for a double mastectomy and will soon be undergoing a voluntary hysterectomy. Check out the Inner Visions, Outer Triumphsvideo for more on her extraordinary journey. The article below focuses on Goble’s yoga teaching and the support her students offered her through the process.
The hopes and prayers are with the Goble family from everyone at Patch.com as they continue their journey in life seeking better health.
Note: The article linked has some factual errors. 90 percent was never stated. It should have said "highly increased risk. Also, their son Terry is not 12 years old. Rather he will be seven in March.
