identify 100 things that make me happy. (read all 44 entries…)
not sure where I am in #'s

having these past few months with my family, despite circumstances, makes me happy. Sure I’ve been going to multiple appointments daily and I feel physically like I’ve been hit by a mac truck…I am present. I have been able to take my son to school, go on a few field trips and even have alone time with him. That’s happiness!

I WILL KICK CANCERS ASS (read all 2 entries…)

Its been 8 months since my diagnosis. 5 surgeries and loads of chemo later, I have no evidence of cancer in my body! I have to continue chemo for the next 14 months but I’m thrilled that I am going back to work after being out of work since December and hoping I will feel empowered and useful.

VERY scared about starting back up…the fatigue that comes along with this poison is indescribable to be honest. There are days I have to use the handrail and help my legs up the steps but others where I feel like a relatively normal person. Today gonna try and not take a nap for the first time, in preparation. Super thankful I have a great family at work to help if needed…but my primary goal is to make it through like the champion I am! Thanks for listening!

and will need help along the way

I got a call yesterday…undetermined cancerous tumor…it will be presented at the tumor board at Johns Hopkins Hospital on Tuesday but at 39 and a new Mom, this was by no means news I was or am prepared for. I WILL fight this off…and would LOVE any support you all might be able to provide. I’ve done amazing things and have many more amazing things to accomplish…cancer cannot stop me. No, not today. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
