Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

So, tomorrow is Easter and I am excited to be going to church for the first time since starting chemo. Rule of thumb is to stay away from crowds…. but it’s Easter, and I’m going :-)

I’m trying not to think of the new lump I found under my arm…but it’s hard. I just want to go to my appt Monday and hear him say everything is okay. This is such a roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes I think in a positive way that I am almost half done with chemo…and other days I am super negative and only fill my brain with bad thoughts. I guess it’s all part of the journey.

Well, tomorrow is Easter and I am going to try my best to be a “glass is half full” kind of a gal ;) Wish me luck. I want to enjoy the day and celebrate it with friends and family.

What I have learned through all this is nothing in life is a guarantee. Not a



single moment…not a single day… not even a single breath. So, I will do my best to live by this…at least for tomorrow:)
