Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. I was diagnosed with cancer in 2003. A rare cancer of the adrenal gland called metastatic Pheochromocytoma. I won't bore you with all the details but I've had many surgeries, radiation, and chemo over the past 13 years. I've tried to not let my cancer define me but rather I think I've had a unique opportunity to live my life knowing I wasn't invincible. Your perspective changes when you know your time will be cut short. I'm so incredibly blessed to be married to a man who was willing to give up the dreams we had when we were first married and shift gears to this "new philosophy". We have travelled and seen the world together, we share 2 of the most precious children the the world, and Jason has overcompensated for my short comings as ive lost strength and abilities during the past decade. We have been generously blessed by friends and family who help us through the worst of times, especially Granny and Popps Brown. I'm so grateful for all of their help and for their wonderful relationships with Drew and Megan. I've set up this site to try to keep everyone informed in the most efficient way. . I can't always keep up with emails and tests when I'm sick or sedated, but I do appreciate hearing from everyone and knowing we're not alone. Thank you all so much for being in our lives and supporting us through the dark times (as well as the light).
