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.

Project Pink -- LAST CALL!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2012, I hope to post every day this month. Heaven knows I am learning of new breast cancer diagnosis, or serious recurrences of breast cancer, often times metastasis, nearly weekly. Lets all do whatever we can to see that all women are aware of the breast cancer risks, and that research soon puts a stop to this life-changing, and often deadly, disease.

Project Pink - Last Call!
Dear Debbie,
Last call for all Project Pink voters!  Tommorrow, October 5th, marks the end of PUMA's Project Pink campaign and every last vote will make a difference.  The winning charity receives 100% of the profits from PUMA Project Pink gear, as well as $1 everytime someone tweets the hastag #projectpink.  All in all, the donation could be worth $125,000.

So, get over to the polls and VOTE for the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation!  

  1. Submit your email to register for voting.
  2. Enter your basic personal information.
  3. When prompted with "Who do you love?". Click "Vote Now".

  5. VOTE!!!                            
To access the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation's new Act with Love logo, please search the above terms, as "Army of Women" will not show any results within the gallery.
