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. Madalyn has been diagnosed with stage two invasive carcinoma which has spread to the lymph nodes.  She will undergo 20 weeks of Chemotherapy starting this coming Monday morning.  She is scheduled for 4 sessions, two weeks a part then will move to a weekly sessions for 12 weeks.  Surgery will follow in about 4-6 months . No cancer has been detected in any other organs.  Madalyn has a great team of doctors and as you might imagine is facing this journey with courage and setting a great example for us all, including her two daughters.  Madalyn is a natural leader and is approaching this selflessly and mindful that she is one of many people with cancer. She is gleaning strength from the cancer journeys of others and committed to  giving back through her experience.  As expected Madalyn is in command by taking many steps to prepare herself and her family for this journey (as seen in the picture of her amazing new haircut below.) Madalyn is so touched by the kind outpouring of love and support as news of her diagnosis spreads. In the coming days we plan to keep you updated as well as share ways we can pull together to support Madalyn, Zach, and their beautiful daughters, Emersyn (10) and Blair (7) .  (
