[Admin note]: Hello-My name is Denae Bauer and I met Sarah last year through our church, Reach, in Kirkland, WA. I'm honoured to be Sarah's PR/Comms director ;) during this journey she finds herself on. I plan on updating this page as often as Sarah and her family would like me to. Likewise I will be scheduling any other support Sarah may need at this time. i.e rides from chemo, food, fundraising etc. so her family can rely on one point of contact for updates and communication to her support system. I'm the official admin of this site for dear Sarah, but I will be posting her words/updates on her behalf. If you ever need to reach me directly, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Please read the latest from Sarah (her blog is linked to the journal entry below): "As many of you know, June 7th I was diagnosed with breast cancer and on the 22nd determined that it was stage 4 and has spread to other areas of my body. Here’s the thing though...even though this feels and sounds like a death sentence, I am not receiving it that way. I’ve heard survivor stories and know cancer care has come a long way. I know I have options to fight this. But I need a care team that is going to fight, just as hard. I’m shifting my care team from Swedish to Seattle’s Cancer Care Alliance, hopefully with an appointment next week. I am also going through an egg retrieval procedure next week as well, before I start any treatment.
In this whole process I’ve never felt so loved and supported. I have my tribe, and you guys keep me motivated and hopeful. Really my biggest need, right now, is hope...it keeps me going and keeps me focused. When hopelessness hits, its paralyzing.
My dear friend, Denae, has set up this site to organize my care, needs, updates, and other things, all in one place.
I’m honored you are stepping into this mess with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
