Be Well, Get Well and Stay Well

I have had the chance to meet with many women who have joined the club.... a club that they never imagined that they would be a part of...… not a club that they signed up for..... but a club that they find they need once they hear the words "you have cancer."  I once read a quote by Gilda Radner- "Having cancer gave me membership in an elite club I'd rather not belong to."  Many times just hearing that someone they are talking to has been through the same experience and has come out on the other side is comforting. This "club" is a permanent part of me so when I started t

Good-bye Female parts & Hello Channel 6 News

Tomorrow, October 13, 2016, is a big day for me. In the morning, I am having a full robotic hysterectomy. Since my oncotype test revealed a high chance of recurrence and since my tumors were estrogen-based, I am having my ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus removed in hopes that I do not get ovarian or uterine cancer. My biggest fear for tomorrow's surgery is that I will internally bleed (again) or that they will find something in there (like a tumor). I pray to God there is not a cancer party going on in there that I am late for!

While I am in the hospital recovering, I will be on the n

One Year Ago...........

One year ago, yesterday, I found the lumps that would forever change my life. This year has taught me so much about life, love, friendship, and loyalty. Brynn posted today, "Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life" and I couldn't agree more. After finishing treatments, I was able to enjoy the summer and travel to LBI with 8 awesome families, Gettysburg with our awesome soccer team, and Florida to spend an awesome week with Meg, Logan, Landon, & Griffin, visiting Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine, & Amelia Island. I was able to keep up with all the planned activi

Ding... Ding... Ding...

Today was my LAST radiation treatment! All 28 are DONE! Radiation was much more difficult than we expected. While the rays are invisible during the treatments, the results are more than visible. I have MAJOR radiation burns. My entire breast from below my collar bone to my right armpit to above my rib cage and back again is burnt to an absolute crisp. It is raw and purple and peeling. Every single time I move my right side, it hurts so much. I am on a prescription burn cream 3 times per day, Advil every 6 hours and Motrin 600 at night. I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy! After

"Radiation Girl"

As the Hurley World Turns, things often do not go as planned. The good news is that I am "port-less in Medford Lakes." (Thanks, Dad, for the catchy phrase:-) On June 1st my port was successfully removed. It was an odd surgery. I was awake the entire time chatting with Dr. F and the nurses. There was a bit of pulling and pushing and at one point I asked her to just knock me out. It took about 20 minutes and I was home to rest just a few hours after getting to the surgical center. I am thrilled to have the port out. It has healed nicely and I can once again wear my seatbelt the correct w

"Tired and Bloated"

16 chemo treatments.... check! DONE! Without having to skip a single treatment due to side effects or complications, I am officially finished chemo. I am not going to miss it that's for sure. The taste, the smell, the experience is one I will never be able to forget. Every day, I am asked how I am feeling. The answer is always the same, "Tired and bloated." That is exactly how I feel. Dr. C said I should feel stronger in about 3 weeks but not back to my normal self for 9 months. Finishing chemo makes me feel happy, proud, and scared. Happy to not have to go there each week for hours
