Thank you all SO much for your prayers for Elin and her family! Here is a post that she wrote recently!
The sun has set on a very long and challenging season of my life. After a full year, today was the last day of my cancer treatments. I'm so thankful for the cancer team at Aurora medical center. I've grown to love these nurses, doctors and team members. It was almost bittersweet today to say good by. But, I'll be back for another round of visits and checks in March before I head overseas. 
I sat this morning reflecting on God's goodness and faithfulness to me and my family through this hard time. Excited to see what God has for me (and us) in this new season of life.”

Show your love and support for Elin.

Here is a better update after I checked in with Elin  this afternoon!
  “Over all I am feeling better but I am struggling with low white blood cell counts, hormonal imbalance and anemia as I wait for my body's systems to get back online. I'm basically recovered from the surgery and head in tomorrow to begin preparations for radiation reagents starting next week. I will have 16 sessions, one a day for 16 weekdays. I continue with the immunotherapy every three weeks until November. Thank you for praying.”

We got wonderful news from Elin’s surgeon today! They found no cancer at all!!!! They called it a complete pathological response! They checked her lymph nodes also and no cancer had left the breast. 
Thank you all SO much for all of your prayers! She only has some radiation left, but not much. We are all grateful for this and it is such an answer to prayer!!!!

Elin came through her surgery well today! They will check again on Friday to verify that they removed all of the cancer. They took out two lymph glands/nodules and the rest of the tumor when they went in to do her Lumpectomy. Thank you for praying for her! We will keep you up to date on how she is doing!

Happy Easter!
Here is a quick update from Elin!

“Just wanting to post that the tumor shrunk by half and the surgeon recommended alumpectomy not a mastectomy. I had a second opinion that confirmed that. I'm waiting now for white blood cell counts to go back up.  Six weeks out from chemo and they still haven't really kicked in like they should. So, as soon as those are within normal limits then I can schedule the surgerey which will be a day surgery. 4-6 weeks after surgery I will begin radiation based on how surgery goes. 
Thanks to people for praying!!”
