My story of second round of TNBC (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) .... on Tuesday August 28, 2018 I got some news I probably wasn't ready to hear...you have stage 4 breast cancer, incurable....and then the doctor started in on what we could do.  Chemo and to continue to check the cancer progression ....or not!  And that we could try different chemo's if one did not work and I was willing to try more.  We asked questions like, could I get into a study and the answer was a regretful no, I was past the cut off age.  Operating and getting the cancer out of the many places it had invaded my body was out of the question too....it was just too far along.  He even thinks it could be in my brain but it was very small and we'd check that again later.  Right now we are focusing on getting my port put in and starting chemo next week.  So that's that!  I'm going to fight this will all I have and keep a smile on my face, like I always approach things.  With faith and a smile.  We set this care page up so that I could keep up with all of you, my family and friends who I love.  I may have days where I just may not feel up to talking on the phone or texting...and know I would love too, I just may not have the energy too.  So send me a note, say hi, tell me a funny joke, tell me a funny memory you have of us.  That will make me smile.  I will try to update my web page as much as I can.  I love you all!
