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.

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.

Join Me At the Sonoma Relay For Life

Click here to link to my Relay Team ~ Debbie's Blasting Team! You can join the team and come out and walk with me and my family in honor of blasting those cancer cells to smithereens. We will be working to blast those cancer cells to smithereens so your donation is greatly appreciated.

And please come out on August 6th to Sonoma Valley High School for a fun overnight camping trip on the football field and walk a few laps in the Sonoma Relay for Life. If camping overnight is not your gig, then do a few laps during the day, or at dusk when all the beautiful luminaria are lit.

Can't wait to be to this point in my treatment, when chemo and surgery should be done, and perhaps even radiation.

Let's celebrate together!

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Hugs, Debbie... aka the cancer warrior; AND survivor
