Welcome to Cathy’s CaringBridge website. Thank you for visiting. We are using this site to keep Cathy’s family and friends updated on her Journey all in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. ❤️❤️
On Sept. 11th Cathy was diagnosed with stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC)which is the most common form of breast cancer with a 90% survival rate. She had noticed a lump in her right breast which led her to the doctor to get it evaluated that resulted in the mentioned diagnosis.
On Sept 24th, Proceeded by her diagnosis, she had a CAT scan and Bone scan which were both negative for any metastasis. (Spreading of the cancer in adjacent tissues or other areas of the body) And then on Sept. 25th they placed a PORT, outpatient, which is a central line catheter just under her skin where they will administer 4 different types of Chemotherapy and other medications. Cathy will begin her Chemotherapy on Sept. 28th lasting for approximately 4 months.
Cathy had to quit her job on Sept. 20th while she prepares to fight her cancer head on. She resides with her significant other ,Brad, and they share a 7 year old daughter, Claire, that also lives at home with them. While Brad just started a new job they now have a loss of Cathy’s income. This time will be very hard and we ask for all the prayers, help, support, donations that you can do to make this life changing transition as easy as possible for Cathy and her family.
