Welcome to my CaringBridge page.  I have decided to do a CaringBridge page so all my loved ones can follow my journey of kicking Breast Cancer's ass.  While I would love to contact you all individually, lets be real, there will be days I don't even feel like picking my phone or laptop up to say hi.  I thankfully have caught my cancer early enough however, it is a very aggressive form so will be doing 6 months of Chemo before I have surgery.  I will be getting a genetic test done so when it does come to surgery I can make the best decision for me.  Depending on my surgery it will determine if I do radiation and chemo or just chemo after surgery. I am at this point so very overwhelmed.  I will be getting a port implanted on Tuesday and my 1st Chemo treatment will be Friday July 31, 2020, 

 I am thankful for all the support and love everyone is giving.  While there is never a good time for cancer, it is very hard right now with COVID.  This makes having visitors hard and while I know I am not alone, there are times when I feel alone.  I am guaranteed one visitor for my first chemo treatment but I may not be able to have visitors after that.  I was tested today for COVID.  I am currently isolating myself especially for this next coming week.  If we are near each other I do ask that you wear a mask (I will also be wearing a mask).  I do not want to do anything that pose a delay in my treatment as my immunity will be compromised.  I have been blessed with donations of masks (although I would always love more).  I am putting requests out as I will be looking for light weight hats and winter hats (something about losing my hair). 

Just  so you know if I am unable to update, I will have someone update for me.  If you want to send words of encouragement, I would love it.  Anything positive goes a long way.
