LIVESTRONG:

What started as IDC (Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma) in 2011, then turned into CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) in 2013, probably partially caused by chemotherapy along with a genetic pre-disposition. Here we are now in March 2016 and I am newly diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in the left breast and liver (LMBC - liver metastasized breast cancer).


So the focus has shifted yet again, BUT... I continue to THANK YOU for your prayers, love & support. I receive them with open & loving arms. My wish is that I will gain strength from you, will provide helpful information and strength to others & will help to strip away the fears we each experience.


I am strong. I am loved. I am healthy. I WILL SURVIVE!

Have you or your loved one had their annual mammogram? PLEASE, don't put it off. Speaking from experience, I highly recommend monthly self exam as well. And if you are now cancer free of breast cancer, do everything you can to insist that your doctors follow up with an occasional PET Scan and labs for tumor markers.

WARNING:
Contents may be uplifting, sad, funny, scary, downright depressing ~ THAT IS CANCER .... at it's best, at its worst.

PLEASE ~ Feel free to share this blog with anyone who is interested to learn about my journey. While I welcome their support, I hope that by sharing this experience freely to the universe I may help to support others by breaking down some of the barriers and fear associated with breast cancer and the treatment.

Nice Distraction

Whenever I feel down and negative thoughts about the cancer, I’m visualizing the little Pac Man character gobbling up all the cancer cells.

This weekend was a nice distraction. We spent the weekend with Alura and Stephan in Davis and attending the annual UC Davis Camelid Symposium at the Veterinary Hospital complex on campus. Nice distraction because we were learning about our lovely alpacas and all the latest and greatest on husbandry, health and more. And we were with a great group of friends and fellow alpaca lovers. But best off was the night over with Alura and Stephan and talking over dinner at their lovely home.

Hugs, Debbie... aka the cancer warrior
