Shelly’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one.

Shelly was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. We created this site in order to keep everyone up to date on her recovery.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

On February 23rd, 2009, Shelly was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was very unexpected as she had gone in the week before for what was considered to be a routine surgery when they found the cancer.

We have had some rough days since we found out, but now we are moving onto the next steps of battling this disease. The outlook sounds positive. Shelly will be having a mastectomy on Wednesday March 4, 2009. During the surgery she will have some test completed to determine if any of the cancer has traveled outside of her breast.

We would like to thank everyone for their calls, emails, visits, and prayers. The support that we have received from everyone is truly amazing. We need all the support that we can get right now. Please stay in touch!

I will try to update the site as we find out more information and after she has her surgery on Wednesday.
