Jeannine Lauersdorf Jeannine’s Prayer Tribe

I retired June 12, 2019. I had my annual physical and mammogram the end of June. Everything was fine, no issues at all. I found a lump in my breast on August 31st. What a shock! The next couple weeks were a whirlwind of emotions, appointments, specialists, tests, etc...and then came the dreaded words, “You have aggressive breast cancer.” So, here I am, in a club I never wanted to join. Trying to accept that this is ME we’re talking about, not somebody else this time. It took a few days to really let that sink in. I knew it could happen to me. I knew nobody is immune from this. Why not me? I wasn’t angry, but I was sad, a little scared, but also more calm than I thought I’d be. I know that is God. He’s got me. I am one blessed woman. I am wrapped up in His love, and the love, support, positive thoughts, and most of all the prayers, of so many wonderful family and friends. I have a TRIBE of PRAYER WARRIORS that are lifting me up, and it is amazing how I can feel this support! Today, starts BREAST CANCER AWARENESS month, and one week from today (October 8th) I will have surgery to hopefully remove all this cancer from my body. I am ready for the fight of my life, I am strong, and I can do this! I have such a wonderful husband, 6 great kids along with their amazing spouses, and 12 of the most beautiful grandchildren you’ve ever seen. 😉 All of them are loving and supporting me on this journey. I also have the greatest friends, from near and far, who are holding me close in their hearts and praying for me. Like I said earlier, I AM ONE BLESSED WOMAN. I will try and keep this site updated as to my progress when I’m able. Otherwise, my daughter, Emily, will post updates. Please join my PRAYER TRIBE, and be one of my PRAYER WARRIORS. 🙏 Thank you 💗
