Welcome to my CaringBridge site which I've created to keep friends and family updated. I am a wife, mother of 6, epidemiologist and pastor's wife, and in September 2015 I was diagnosed with aggressive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer, Stage II. After three years of remission, I was diagnosed with Stage IIIc metastatic triple negative breast cancer, and in the fall of 2021, Stage IV. I appreciate that you took the time to visit, and for your concern! I will post as things develop. Thank you so much for your encouraging words here--it means so much to me!!
