Welcome to Pixie’s CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.

Pixie first found a lump in her breast on Sept 26th. The following weeks the Doctors did a mammogram, an ultrasound and a biopsy.
On Oct 10th, she received a call saying that the diagnosis is Breast Cancer (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma).
Since receiving her diagnosis, she met with Dr Natasha Rueth (Surgical Oncologist) and Dr Daniel Cantwell (Plastic Surgeon) to see what her options are.
Nov 16th, she will have reconstructive surgery to remove the cancer. The surgery will be slightly more than a lumpectomy, but less than a mastectomy, resulting in a double breast reduction.
As of right now, after a month of healing she will start radiation 5 days a week for approx 6 weeks.

Thank you in advance for all of your support and encouragement, we will be sure to keep you updated as time goes on!
