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.
First thing, thanks for all the love, prayers and concern, Rick and I truly appreciate it. Please keep them coming, I'm gonna need them.
What I have is triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma. It's an aggressive breast cancer, but I am going to be aggressive back!! I will be off work at least 6 months.
I have an amazing team of doctors at Hoag Hospital and feel very confident in them. Chemo begins next week (11/7). It's 20 weeks total, two types every other week for the first 8 weeks, then another type once weekly for the next 12 weeks. Approximately 4 weeks after that I'll have my surgery, then radiation.
Rick has been so incredible. My girls have been incredible, I am blessed!
Once things get underway we will have an idea about visiting. Rick and the girls will keep you updated.
If you want to call me feel free to, but please understand if I don't answer right away.
You can also contact Angela & Jamie, I'll rely on them to pass along information.
Meanwhile, please continue to pray as we tackle this together.
