Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

On Nov. 6th I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Cancer with HER-2 Positive. I learned today I have “Triple Positive” breast cancer which means that it is very fast growing and spreading. My mass was at 2cm when first discovered in October 2019. My Proliferation Rate is at 80%.

This also means I am going into this fighting with everything I have. I will survive this and win. I know this. I also know I have a very long road ahead of me. The days I’m knocked down you can bet I’ll be right back up. I love my life, my family and my friends. That is what gives me all of the motivation to come out of this on top.

Thank you to each and every one of you that is sending love and supporting my family and I through this. It means more than you will ever know.

Love Always,
