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.  i’ve never thought the through all my heart issues and events that led to this day would I ever hear the words you have breast cancer it’s triple negative and aggressive, words I thought I’d never hear and words I never want anyone to hear on January  23rd 2019. I had had a biopsy the day before and was called less than 24 hours that my test came back positive for breast cancer. Oh well I got this I said to myself you’ve had open heart surgery several stents carotid artery surgery to heart attacks Suffering from diabetes hey what’s the worst part I’ll lose my hair and I’ll get new boobs.  ask me that again in 24 hours how I feel? What the ???  I’ve always dealt with my clients sometimes usually the first to know after the family was shaving their heads before it falls out due to chemo side effects. Oh man yeah my first thoughts no more haircolor no more cuts no more blow dry drying this hair every day, but, when  it does begin to happen to you and you’re on the other side of that chair don’t have the same thoughts do you nope sure don’t but I’d rather shave my head rock it out and let it grow back newer and fresher than ever. Hey I got some hats ill rock those two and I’ll make some things for women to put in their hats to make them feel better about losing their hair Hey god is this your plan OK good good so far. So this is the start of my journey along with my family and friends and my two dear children who are my heart and soul to kick cancers butt  to put it nicely Hope you enjoy reading my journal of my days and weeks to come And continue your prayers for my family friends my daughters and everyone who is battling cancer or any battle remember you are a warrior you are superwoman And as a wise man once said “only way to get through it is to go through it “Robby Mcbride
