A note from Heather:
I want to update you on what has been going on with me over the last couple of weeks. As some of you may know, I had a dry cough and I have been going to the doctor's to try to find the root of the problem. I have had many tests performed and they conclude I have Adrenal Cancer. It originated on my right adrenal gland and has moved to my lungs where I have several nodules causing the dry cough. I also have a small nodule on my brain.
I know that is a lot of information. It has been the craziest roller coaster for me over the past 3 weeks.
On the bright side, my blood work is normal and I have no other health issues which puts me in a strong place to start my treatment. I will be starting chemotherapy treatment on August 19th.
I am so grateful for the love and support I have from my family, friends and all of you and I know you all have my back.
What you can do? - Send me your positive healing energy and prayers - Send me photos - You are welcome to reach out to me. I ask that you are patient with me and know that I am getting a lot thrown at me every day and I can only do so much so I may not respond for a bit. It doesn't mean I don't appreciate it or value it, it's just that I have to take care of myself and do one thing at a time. I will also work to be honest and if I'm not in the space to talk let you know who you can reach out to for an update.
