This past Tuesday was my 5th appointment at Dana Farber and my 4th treatment cycle. No news is good news I guess!! Everything still looks good, the NP who did my exam said she could not feel the tumor in my breast anymore!! Huge news!! Next month I will have my first set of scans since beginning treatment. This will be when the doctors can confirm that the meds are working and that I am on the right path!!!
Our Jimmy Fund walk team, Cabral’s Crusaders, has raised $16,074 as of this morning which will all be donated to finding a cure!! I am so humbled by all of the support from so many and am honored that we are all walking together against this awful disease. Since my diagnosis, the more people I talk too about my situation, the more I realize that there are so many people affected by this. In my direct circle of friends, I have two friends that have recently fought and BEAT breast cancer!! I recently learned of a girl from my hometown whose young son is battling cancer as well. I am glad that we are giving back, not only to find a cure for me but also for all the others that are battling this!!!
I wanted to give a shout out to my hubby, Trevor. He has been my rock through this whole ordeal. We all know that I am a control freak and that I am usually the one in the drivers seat of our life (figuratively and in real life, since I get car sick when he drives!) so it is hard for me to let him take charge but he is wonderful! He has not missed an appointment, takes notes and asks questions when needed, reminds me to take my meds and hydrate and is there constantly to remind me of how many positive things are on our side with this! I know my constant eye rolls and short fuse with him is not easy to deal with but I am so grateful to have him by my side with this diagnosis and in life!!! XOXO
