Hello Family and Friends,
It has been suggested that I set up this web sight in order to get information out to you all in a easier way.  I am not very good at this so please be patient with my attempts  at sharing my story.  I truly feel extremely blessed to have such a great support system of family and friends.  Your love, support, and  Prayers have truly brought me peace and comfort.  I have total trust and faith in my Heavenly Father, My Dr's , and in myself to be able to win my fight against Cancer.  I feel no fear and am truly at peace with this current challenge in my life.   

     My Story begins about the middle of March when I began having the strong feeling that there was going to be a complete lifestyle change coming up for Hal and I.  As time passed the feeling got stronger and stronger.  I finally told Hal I didn't know what or when it was coming but there were big changes coming to us.  We both laughed but knew in our hearts it was true. 
      On April 18th I went into get a routine mammogram that turned out to be not so routine.  I figured when they took me down the hall for a ultrasound that there was going to be trouble.  Sure enough! The radiologist set me up for a ultrasound  biopsy two days later.  I asked him to tell me as much as he could and he said from the shape and size he was 95% sure it was Cancer.  Well there you have it I finally found out what our life change was going to be.  I was not surprised at all when he told me and did not feel any fear.  I received the biopsy report on April 24th confirming that I had Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Cancer and that I needed to find a surgeon as soon as I could. 
    On 4th I met with Dr Cashman the surgeon, Dr. Mendonca the Oncologist, and Finkel the reconstruction surgeon from the Ironwood Cancer and Research Center  to begin the plans for treatment.  I was then set up for Surgery on May 31st at the Mercy Gilbert Hospital.  It seemed like such a hurry up and wait situation but I am grateful to have time to prepare for my surgery.  I will be checking in that morning at 5:00.
     My Daughter Marisa will be updating the sight to let you know how surgery goes.
