Happy New Year’s dear friends! As I spend the day in reflection of the coming year I wanted to share some recent news. Two days before Thanksgiving I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and have tested positive for the BRCA gene. I’m scheduled to have a bilateral mastectomy on 1/9/20 followed by reconstruction, chemo and radiation. It was caught early during a routine mammogram so I can’t say enough about getting yearly mammograms.  If I waited a year, my story may have a different ending as it’s aggressive but at this stage it’s totally curable! So please....if you’re reading this, go get your mammogram and do so every year! Husbands, fathers, boyfriends and brothers encourage the women in your lives to do so as well. Thank you in advance for all your prayers during the next few months. My family and I really appreciate it! ❤️
