Mona SaechaoWALTERVILLE: A sudden illness that hospitalized the wife of a 5th grade teacher at Walterville Elementary has generated a strong community response. Mona Saechao, who has been a charge nurse on surgical/oncology at Riverbend Hospital, had been well as little as a month ago when she ran in her first half-marathon. That quickly changed when she began to experience nausea and memory loss.
Tests soon revealed a rare, dangerous case of acute brain inflammation (limbic encephalitis) which was causing her memory problems. Unfortunately, the situation quickly went from bad to worse when tests showed the underlying cause of the dangerous swelling was Stage 2 cancer.
