Team Kickin' Ass

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and prayers. Thank you for visiting.
I am writing a standard letter to all my gals to let you know I've been diagnosed with Breast Cancer . It is Stage 2A. Meaning caught early , growing slowly, one small ( under 2 c ) tumor in left breast and in the lymphnode . That's the part that's not great and is leading to the treatment plan .
My theory is "your reproductive system brings forth life then attempts to kill you "
So I am now embarking on my journey to kick its ass .
I ask for healing prayers , prayers for wise counsel and doctors , and prayers for my family.
Right now the treatment plan is : Chemo every 3 weeks starting this Thursday for 4 times and then Followed by surgery to remove the lymph-node (s) and cancer in breast , possibly lumpectomy or mastectomy , reconstructive surgery , Radiation and hormone therapy .
So next 6 months or so will be a wild ride but I have great support and FAITH to carry me thru.
Now some advice : get your mammograms every year . I did and this is what showed up . Last year normal , this year ... not so much ! I am in awe of how they even found it . My care thus far has been very good and I anticipate it will continue .
So please storm Heaven with your prayers on my and my family's behalf . I believe it will make a difference . Thank you and Love you all !
