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.  In July Doreen was diagnosed with Stage 2B breast cancer.  With no genetic history of cancer in the family, and with only one risk factor for getting the disease, it came as quite a shock.  The good news is that she's been told this is curable.  The difficult news is that the treatment is pretty brutal.  Currently (October 20) she is halfway through 6 rounds of heavy duty chemotherapy.  This round brought many unexpected side effects coupled with extra doctor visits and she has been unable to work since October 14th.  In January she will undergo surgery and hopefully at that time there will be no more sign of the cancer.  We are happy to report that the lump that was initially found has dissolved almost completely.  There is much to be thankful for.  Many friends and family members have come forward with practical, financial, and prayer support.  She has been surrounded by much love and is grateful for each and every one of you and the part you play in helping her heal.
