On May 19th my mom sat my sister and I down to tell us she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news is that they caught it at stage 0! So it's still in the cellular stage and with the help of technology and the highly trained doctors it is fully treatable. With much consideration mom has decided to get a double mastectomy so we don't have to worry about it returning and her surgery is set for Monday July 22nd. It will be a 10 hour surgery because while she is under they will be taking tissue from her stomach to reconstruct her breasts. This is a very invasive surgery and we want to make sure everyone is up to date with what's going on while mom is resting and recovering. So on that note, welcome back to Caring Bridge!
