Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Thank you for visiting!

On March 24th I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer ( Invasive Plemorphic Lobular Carcinoma) I had a lumpectomy , breast surgery ,on April 7th. To my  Lady friends, I did not find a lump, I had a sensation a numbing, rubbing feeling, like my clothes were bothering me, so I went in for a mammogram and it all went from there. My Breast surgeon told me it was a act from God. Thank you God!  I was only at a stage 2. So remember ladies you may not find a lump go if you feel different in that area.   I have been through many tests, genetic studies, bone scans, and heart scans, they then tested the type of cancer called a Onco test it  to show how strong it was to come back again because next time it could go widespread.  This would determine my treatment.  Unfortunately. I had a good chance to get it again. So my plan will include Chemo first, which will take 5 months to complete. Then I will move to radiation every day for 4 weeks and finally hormonal therapy to get rid of my estrogen and progestin which was how my cancer was fortified.  I had a port put in Tuesday May 16th.  My first Chemo treatment, May 19th.

I have a wonderful care team.  I have a long road ahead of me but I plan on a complete 100% recovery. I will lose my hair, that's a bummer, but will get through it. Thank you for all your prayers, cards and candles lit.
