Journal entry by Dawn Rousseau

I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and colon cancer.  The doctors believe that it’s Lynch Syndrome. It’s genetic/hereditary. Googling it gives a pretty good summary of what it is. 

I’m being treated at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. They’re ranked #14 in the country, so I know I’m in excellent hands. Everybody there is amazing, so kind and caring.

I’ve had many tests, and it looks like I’m having surgery in March. One surgery for both cancers, thankfully. It may even be robotic surgery, which would be awesome.  It’s less invasive

So, that’s where we are right now. I’ll post updates.  Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot to me and my family. Love you all!!!
