My CRAZY, Beautiful life – an incredible family, wonderful friends, fulfilling business ventures and much more to come. I have so many plans!

It all changed for me on Tuesday, August 2nd. My first doctor's appointment, for what I thought was a gall bladder attack, turned quickly  into this nightmare. 
Over the next week, I endured doctors, tests, needles, ultrasounds, CT scans, MRI's, sleepless nights, countless tears, an Endoscopic Biopsy, cancer port placement surgery and too many sad and hopeless doctors. I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer on Wednesday, August 10th. 

I NEVER thought I would hear the word "CANCER". That word jolted my heart and stopped my world. It was like someone shoved me off a cliff... 

But now we have hope! Thanks to Dr. Singh at Hudson Hospital, Kristine Scott (my friend, holistic healer and spiritual medium), the Surgery and Oncology teams at Mayo Clinic, and the countless friends, family, and unexpected angels that have wrapped me in their loving arms, thoughts, and prayers. I'm scared and I don't want to leave my crazy, beautiful life. 
The battle begins – I am Healing. I will be a Miracle.
