Surgery Tomorrow

On Thursday, October 24th, I will have my colon resection surgery, which has been my dream from the beginning.  I feel blessed because I have had the best-case scenario for my recovery.  In the beginning, I imagined this moment would be the end, but I now realize there is no end.  This chapter is near the end, but cancer has changed every facet of my life and is ever present.  Over the past nine months, I went from being diagnosed with Stage IV cancer to hopefully being NED (no evidence of disease) after this surgery, which will truly be a blessing and a miracle.  God is great and so are all of you who have supported my family and me over the past nine months.  We are forever grateful for all of the love and support.

Throughout this experience, I have found and met people my own age with similar diagnoses and I would like you to keep them in your thoughts and prayers:  Nick, who is fighting cancer and has a young family, Karen, who just completed her first chemo treatment and is kicking butt, and Leah, also with two young children, is fighting cancer with such grace. Thank you.
