On January 3, 2016 I was diagnosed with invasive ductile carcinoma - aka breast cancer. This is my journey. I've created this CaringBridge site to keep friends and family updated as I battle the beast within. Some days I may simply need to ramble or bitch and moan. Some days I may need to reach out for hugs n squishes. I'm not sure what to expect but I know that every day I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement!
