Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

My story hardly begins here. But this story can begin here.  Leiomyosarcoma. Great. I first read about it when I was told I had a large uterine fibroid. I really like information. Learning about what I am facing helps me "process". One percent of women who have a hysterectomy for fibroids learn that not everything that looks like a fibroid on imaging tests actually turns out to be a fibroid. One percent of us learn that we have this sarcoma. Great. 

So tomorrow I am going for an appointment at Duke.  My previous "stories" have been written the old fashioned way - in journals. On occasion, I have let people read these stories. And they benefitted from my experiences. I hope this story can be like that for someone.
