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.
Bill and I are seeking prayer warriors and before I begin, we think everything is going to be ok in the end. However, things are not so great for the next year.
I have been diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer that will be addressed with aggressive treatment. There are lots of positive about this, the mass is small, found early, and curable. The treatment will begin with the first available appointment to medical oncology with chemotherapy beginning within the next three weeks. There will be three rounds of chemo followed by surgery sometime in March and radiation for 5 weeks at five times a week for 5 minutes a session. The easiest of all, will be a final precaution of a daily pill for five years. Expected duration of treatment is a year. From the outside there is not any invasion of the lymph nodes but will not be confirmed until surgery in March. This will be a day surgery appointment for removal of just the mass. This is a year long treatment plan.
I am not afraid because I am a child of God and have been given the promise...God will never leave me nor forsake me.
We believe good things will come from this Most of all, we are already closer to each other as we serve in our walk with God.
Bill and I appreciate the kindness and caring that has always come from all you and need your prayers in the coming year. I am strong and will get through to the finish.
