Update on my Mom

Thank you to all who have been praying for my mom. I thought I would post a little update for everyone. Her cancer is a grade three, which means it is very fast growing but it is a stage one which means she caught it early. Mammograms do work....make sure you are getting them! She has had two surgeries that have removed all of the cancer tumor and good portion of the tissue around where the cancer was. She will start chemo on Thursday. It seems everybody you talk to has there own "cancer story". I wish it wasn't this way, I hate to see so many hurt by it. We are optimistic that with the chemo and radiation she will soon be as good as new. To be blunt it just sucks she has to go through all of this.

I saw a t-shirt once that said "Cancer Sucks!" and I'm still mad at myself for not buying it. That pretty much sums it up. Glad to have you back (selfishly)!

Mammos and skin cancer screens are important. I am so sorry for your mom! Everyone has their battles and none of them are fair.
