Welcome to our families CaringBridge website. We will be using it to keep family and friends updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. I myself want to thank you all in advance for visiting. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on September 4th and we have been serching for several different opinions and care teams all across the State since. We now have decided to continue my care with Virginia Piper Breast Institute at Abbott Northwestern Hospital & Allina Medical Centers including Mercy Medical Center and Cambridge Medical Center to stay close to home so our family can be by my side as much as they can. Tomorrow October 1st 2018 we will find out what stage cancer it is from the sugar/dye tests from this past Friday and we met with our Surgeon this past Friday morning before those tests. So when we have more to update we will continue with my story here. I love you all and thanks for being here with me everyone.
