Welcome to our CaringBridge website. On November 30th, 2016 after a routine mammogram; revealing some irregularities and a subsequent biopsy, I was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ, a non invasive form of breast cancer. After receiving a second opinion at Vanderbilt on December 15th, 2016 it was discovered after a second biopsy, that I have Padget's disease. In light of this new diagnosis, I will now require a mastectomy to my right breast with a series of reconstructive surgeries after. This will definitely be a pilgrimage but one that I will step forward into with full faith and trust in my God and His will above all. I am incredibly blessed and thankful to have you all in my life. Along with my daughter Mandy and my husband Frank, we will be using this site to keep family and friends up to date in one place. It will aide in keeping everyone updated on all of the important information and progress along this journey. We appreciate your prayers, support and words of hope and encouragement.
