AND, it's very hard to even imagine telling all my dear family and friends this news. So if this is your first time hearing this, my apologies. We called as many as we could, but then that burden just became too big, with everything else on our plates at the moment.
Yes, the dreaded cancer has returned.
So I am now Stage IV breast cancer. Sounds horrible, I know, but this Breast Cancer in the liver is treatable, and people can live several years under treatment. Treatable but not curable. Those days are gone!
This is a photo of our cancer girls lunch in January at Garden Court Cafe with Denise. Most of us have cancer, or have had recently, or have lost a spouse from cancer. We live in Glen Ellen and Sonoma and have connections from the past. It's so sad to think Denise is no longer with us, but I know she is at peace and out of pain. Her service and the reception following were lovely and very befitting of her. We all give each other continued support. Some of this group are dealing with just as bad as what I am up against, metastasized cancer (Mets), while doing it with grace and dignity, and a bit of laughter. They are my role models as we navigate this road, my worst nightmare, and something I do not wish on anyone.
|Healing laughter with my sisters tonight!|
AND a Cardiomyopathy warrior!!!
