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. As most of you know, I was surprisingly diagnosed with Breast Cancer in August. After exhaustive testing, it was determined that I would have a lumpectomy (hugely successful on 10/06), endure 4 rounds of chemotherapy (11/18 - 01/20), recover 4-6 weeks, endure radiation therapy daily for 6 1/2 weeks, and take Tamoxifen for 10 years. Hopefully this will keep me cancer-free for my life, or at least for this beautiful section of it! I DO count my burdens, because they are ALL blessings when I allow God to use them for His good. I plan to use this site to share photos and updates of my journey - your support means the world to me, so I am happy to share! Enjoy, and THANK YOU for everything you have done!
