Journal entry by Heather Kerndt

Today I am receiving my 14th and final Kadcyla treatment!  I looked back at my old entries and saw that this treatment started on July 24th.   Wow I can't believe it has already been 9 months!  I am going to end my caring bridge entries at this point.  I appreciate you all sticking with me and following my journey over the last year and a half since I was diagnosed with cancer. 

I will have a smaller surgery this summer to take out my ovaries, remove my port and finish up some plastic surgery issues and that is all I have planned.  This summer I hope to enjoy more time in the sun and with my kids than last summer.  I hope to enjoy every minute I feel well and focus on being healthy with my family and friends.  

I will follow up with my oncologist every 3 months for a year and then gradually wean to less frequent visits.  

I feel like I have made it to the finish line of of this marathon and am ready to move forward knowing that I have done everything I can to fight at this point.  

Thank you all for your supporting me and my family!
