Hi family and friends.
What a very surreal way to begin 2021. In November 2020 I had a normal mammogram with advice to have an mri in 6months due to family and personal history. My mom is a two time breast cancer survivor. I had a lumpectomy a few years ago that was benign. In mid December I woke in the middle of the night with a painful lump in my breast and night sweats. I saw my gynecologist two days later. She ordered an ultrasound. It was really hard to get in! I called around until I got into an imaging clinic January 18. The ultrasound led to biopsies and the biopsies of the breast and lymph node under my right arm tested positive for “triple negative beast cancer”. Things are now moving extremely fast with my medical team at Ironwood. The surgeon and oncologist are in agreement. The projected treatment is 8 chemotherapy treatments every other week, and then surgery if cancer is there present. I am surrounded by a lot of love and support to which I will be eternally thankful. As I’ve told everyone so far. I am not afraid of cancer. But It’s damn annoying and inconvenient!! If social distancing wasn’t already hard enough, this diagnosis will take that to an epic level that will make 6 feet feel like hug. I have put in for a leave of absence from flying until chemo is complete.

Isaiah 41:10.
I do not fear because God is with me. I am not dismayed because He is my God. He strengthens me and helps me. He holds me in His righteous right hand.
