I've created this site for friends who would like updates on my breast cancer journey. Facebook is a great way to connect, but with such a personal topic, I don't feel comfortable sharing with such a large audience. If you're reading this, we are more than casual Facebook "friends" and I thank you for your concern and support.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2016. For the first 5 months (after freaking out momentarily) I pursued alternative therapies. Traditional Chinese Medicine being my main focus. After limited success with what I was doing I decided to pursue other avenues. I spent 6 weeks in Atlanta (with my sister Amy and husband Mike) doing various therapies including IPT (insulin potentiated chemotherapy) vitamin C infusions, supplements and more. I'm now back in Charleston and am scheduled for a lumpectomy November 15th. I will have radiation after surgery. My hair has thinned from chemotherapy but didn't all fall out. I feel great and I'm ready to forge ahead and get this done. It's been an eye opening experience and even though it's not what I would have chosen to be doing in retirement, I look at life in a different way. For that I'm grateful. After announcing my diagnosis, I've been touched by all the people who have reached out and shared their own experience with breast cancer. Too many it seems. Thanks again to all my friends and family for their love and support.
