Yes we are HERE again battling our 2nd bout of cancer. Below is our original story and if you go through my entries you can share my fight since 2010.
Let's do this - ready to win again !
Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.We never thought we would be here, yet here we are. I have breast cancer. The more I actually say it, the more I am able to face it. You can't tackle something if you deny it, and we are ready to fight back. After working each and every day to survive the loss of Ed's mother to cancer. One thing we have learned is to lean on each other. The other is that there are so many of you out there that care, that we are very lucky to have you all.At 45, finding out you have cancer is very overwhelming. I'm sure it is at any age, but you spend many hours thinking of all that is left to do and you know that you need to get through this inconvenience, so you can go on to do all of those important things. Goodness, the kids will hit their "teens" before we know it........now that is scary !!!! But I wouldn't want to miss a minute of all those times they will be telling me that they know all and I am so out of it. Mom will tell you - its payback, for my teen years. And I'm expecting it.Then graduations, and girlfriends and boyfriends and broken hearts that I will help them through. I'm ready for all this.......but I wasn't ready for the cancer. I just need to take this brief intermission from my normal life, to make sure that I don't miss any of the important things.As a family we will overcome this and be stronger and closer in the years to come.And we are grateful to all those closest to us, for helping us through it all.Love,Faith Ann
