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.
On December 17th, we found out that what we had thought was a bad infection from breastfeeding was actually cancer. A week later we learned that it is invasive ductal carcinoma, triple negative, Stage 3 breast cancer . We have had a lot of other diagnostic work that has come back clear, which is a huge blessing. We know that the cancer is in the right breast and a couple of lymph nodes close by but no where else.
Treatment will start on January 9th and include 2 phases of chemo that will last 4-5 months. Surgery 4-6 weeks later. Radiation 4-6 weeks later. There could be some additional steps but that will be determined through the treatment process.
God has surrounded us by you and created an army of prayers, encouragement, help and love. During this emotional time, we have great times of peace that can only be given by God. Thank you for all your prayers, encouragement and care. It means the world to us right now!
And for the next while here...our motto is #peaceoutcancer
