Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
This journey that I am sharing with all of you is a direct result of the outpouring of love and support shown to me by so many in recent weeks. During January 2017/February 2017 I was in the hospital 3 of 4 weeks, a result of being diagnosed in December with bladder cancer and breast cancer, unrelated to each other. Although diagnosed locally, I have decided to continue the fight at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ , where my sister Ronnie lives and wants to help me with my health journey. I have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of care and support, especially from my sisters Ronnie and Maddy along with friends Marykay and Carol whom I call my sisters from another mother :) Thanks to all of you who have visited, sent well wishes and phoned me during this time.
I will be leaving Albuquerque on Sunday February 26 for Scottsdale and will begin treatment right away. I invite you to share this journey with me, I will be providing updates and stories to tell during this time, and I encourage you to post on this private site created for my family and special friends. Will see you when I return to Albuquerque in the spring.
