As I start my second go-round with endometrial cancer, I want to give praise and glory to God my savior. This is a very uncertain and scary time for my family, but I truly believe in the sovereignty of God, the power of prayer and his perfect plan for my life. 

My cancer journey started in 2017 when I was diagnosed with stage 1A endometrial cancer. I underwent a full hysterectomy and 3 rounds of internal radiation. Unfortunately, in July of this year, I was once again diagnosed with this cancer. My cancer is at stage 3 and in August I had surgery to remove the lymph nodes in my pelvic area. 

Now that I have recovered from surgery I am ready to start treatment. My doctors are being aggressive, working hard to make sure I don't have to fight this battle again in the future. Starting on September 13th I will be having daily radiation treatments for 5 weeks (except weekends). After radiation is complete I will be starting 6 rounds of chemotherapy. 

I am, of course, concerned about undergoing these treatments, what they will do to my body, how they will make me feel, but I am confident in my doctors and confident in the sustaining power of God. 

I appreciate the support, generosity and prayers of all of you who visit this site and help Travis and I during this time. 

Thank you!
