Welcome to my website. I thought this would be the best way for me to communicate with those who love and support me. My journey started with my annual check-up in February, and finding that I needed to have a diagnostic mammogram because something didn't seem quite right. The mammogram was followed by a sonogram, followed by biopsies (lots of biopsies). I can't say enough about the wonderful caring and kind folks I have encountered along the way through the Allegheny Health Network. I feel blessed to have a top notch care team. I have been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, stage 3. I will begin chemotherapy treatment on Friday, March 20th. I have a years journey ahead involving chemotherapy, a radical mastectomy, and radiation. My husband and soulmate, Skip, is taking great care of me, but won't be able to do it on his own. I have a super supportive family and they are already helping, but we will need additional support along the way, and I will communicate that here on this website. THANK YOU, and THANK YOU again for being part of this journey with me, and for all of your prayers, please continue to pray for us.
