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.

As soon as we have more information we will post it here.

On October 13th I had a second mammogram performed and an ultrasound.  Afterwards the Doctor wanted to schedule a biopsy on three suspicious masses in my left and right breasts.  On Friday, October 19th I had three biopsies.  Monday, October 22 my doctor called with the results.  I have Invasive lobular carcinoma (right breast 10:00, and papilloma (right subareolar space). The next steps: I will need surgery to remove the tumors and I will have an MRI to determine if the cancer has spread. I see the surgeon on November 7th to consult and begin next steps.

So many of you were supportive and loving during Don's journey and successful treatment of cancer and we both appreciate everyone's love. I am optimistic that we caught the cancer early and we will have a successful prognosis.
