In early April I was diagnosed with stage 2 gastric cancer. Following surgery in June, that was revised to stage 3 because there was local spread to 11 nodes the lymphatic system.

The current plan has been 8 weeks of intensive chemotherapy. This will be followed by surgery to remove a portion of my stomach, my gallbladder, and area lymph nodes. After recovering from surgery, I will finish with another 8 week course of chemotherapy.

My mood so far has been elevated and peaceful, and I am everyday reminded of the gentle hand of God’s providence in my life. I have been given a fighting chance—a gift not everyone receives—and I’m ready to fight like hell. I am everyday heartened and humbled by the outpouring of support in an encouraging text, a hot meal, or help getting our 3 kids to wherever they need to be. You all are a powerful tool keeping my morale high and helping me marshal all my energy into this fight.

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
