Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to create it so that all the people close to me can check in to see what happening in my treatment, and how I'm doing. This doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please feel free to call, email, text any time. But I apologize if I don't always get back to you. This new cancer journey of mine is a full time job, and I'm doing the best that I can. Please know that your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me...keep them coming! Thank you for all your help and support takes a community, and you have all given us that.
With love and gratitude,

Last week we embarked on a new journey. One I never imagined I would least not this soon. We learned the devastating news that my breast cancer is back after 5 years. My heart breaks for my children.
The only thing we know for sure is that cancer has taken hold of my liver. We go tomorrow to find out the results of the many CTs and scans I had last week. We are all praying for the best possible news.
My oncologist, Rebecca Dent, gave us hope by saying that there are so many new treatments now, and that it will be like treating a chronic disease. So my first chemo treatment is on Friday. I will pick myself up and fight this thing with the help of Mark, Zachary and Zoe, a healthy diet, nutritional support, exercise, reduced stress (not sure how I'll manage this one!), and hope.
It's been really hard to share this information with all our family and friends. But I can't thank people enough for their incredible offers of help, support, and prayers. It will help get me through this journey.
