Welcome to Brienn’s CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your prayers, support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Brienn is only a month into this journey. We are still digesting all of the information that has been thrown our way. It is overwhelming and confusing, and just too much sometimes. BUT, Brienn is strong. She is a fighter. She loves her children fiercely and everything she does is for them. She will fight this fight for them. Her doctors are wonderful, and we already know that God has perfectly and purposely placed them in her treatment path. There are a lot of questions that we cannot answer, and although we don’t know “why” this has happened, we will not let go of the hand that holds the answers. God is carrying us through this.
Here’s what we know so far, and what the road ahead holds for the next six months or so…
Brienn’s cancer is not “staged” yet. We are waiting for her to have more scans this week, and pending those results her first chemo treatment will be on May 5th. Right now her doctors are saying that she will need to do the chemotherapy for 5-6 months and then have the larger surgery to remove the (hopefully smaller and more defined) tumors in her left breast and lymph nodes. After that she will need additional chemo and radiation.
This site is the best place to get updates on Brienn. I will try to post journal entries at least once a week so that everyone can stay up to date on Brienn's treatment and needs. THANK YOU to all of you that have reached out. I know you are all standing by to help during this time, and we cannot express how very grateful we are for you.
