Hello friends and family,
I've been diagnosed with Stage IIIC Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Otherwise known as aggressive Breast Cancer. I'll be undergoing 6 rounds of Chemotherapy with Pergeta, Herceptin, Carboplatin, and Taxotere (3 weeks between infusions). After chemotherapy is over, I'll be undergoing either a lumpectomy or a mastectomy. After recovery from the surgery, I will be undergoing radiation for 6 weeks. Woof.
Now that we've got the technical jargon out of the way, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, whether you are a close friend, a distant relative, or somewhere in between. I'm so blessed to be surrounded with the most kick ass people. I'm very grateful for all of you. Please explore this website for ways that you can help, my diet and exercise regimen, and updates on how I'm doing. If you can, please visit my GoFundMe page to assist with donations (https://www.gofundme.com/myrandawhitesidesbc
). I'm hoping to provide an update at least once per week.
I'm still human. I'm still here. I still want to see you. It will just be different for a little while. This is going to be a scary journey, but I'm going to own it. I just might need a little boost sometimes.
I love you all,
