Hello all! If you are reading this it means you either know me personally, know of me through someone, or just happened to stumble across this page. Regardless, welcome and thank you ahead of time for all of your love and support!
Monday, Nov. 13th, 2017 I was officially diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma: cancer of my nose and throat. It has spread and I now have multiple tumors on both sides of my neck.
Treatment, as of now, will take place every day, (Monday-Friday), for 7 weeks. In order to beat this, I will be doing both chemotherapy and radiation. After which, I will probably endure more chemotherapy treatments.
As absolutely terrifying as this is, I know that I have amazing humans in my life who love and support me and are pushing me to be a survivor! We got this! 💪🏽
I’m using this site and blog to connect with everyone and to make sure anyone can reach out and check in on me. Even on bad days I will try to keep people updated; even if that means family or friends having to give the update.
I am in for a long tough journey but 5 days a week for 7 weeks is only 35 days. Doesn’t seem so terrible that way, right? 35 days to start this journey off and I know that with everyone’s love, words of support and successful stories shared I will stay tough, resilient and as positive as I can be! 🖤🦄
