In early December I went in for a routine mammogram.   I got a call telling me to come back for more tests.   Unfortunately those tests revealed that I had breast cancer.   Surgery was scheduled for January 17th.   At that time they thought the tumor was less than a centimeter.   After surgery I was informed that the tumor was actually 4.5 centimeters,  that I had numerous other tumors as well,  and that the cancer had spread to my lymph nodes.   I have been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.   In the next week or so (late January/early Feb.)  I will begin chemotherapy.

At first I was terrified at the thought of losing my hair.   Now all I care about is beating this so that I can continue to watch my four kids grow up and someday love on my grandkids.   I am going to fight this with every fiber in my being and I am committed to beating it.

I have been blessed with so many wonderful people in my life, who in this short amount of time have given me and my family so much love and support.   I can't begin to tell you how much that has meant to me.  Thank you all.
