This is my first blog. I won’t be daring enough to send this out until I’ve got this sort of figured out. If you’re wondering about me…..I’m a 36 year old mom of 3 beautiful kiddos. Charis is almost 7, Meleah is 3 and Elijah just turned 1 in January. I’m married to a pretty cool guy named Jeremy. We met while both working at Ichthus Christian Music Festival and were married a year later. I knew from the day I met Jeremy that he was a great guy…..and I was right. He has been such a strong advocate for me in ministry and now in my breast cancer fight. That leads me to the BC. I was diagnosed with a rare and rather serious type of breast cancer called inflammatory breast cancer on February 3rd. I did the usual thing….thought I had a plugged duct or mastitis for several months until I got serious about it and insisted on an appointment at my Ob office. I NEVER ever thought it was BC. I’m so thankful I was persistent about the appointment because we caught it early. It’s in both breasts, but did not spread and thankfully is not in my bones, lungs or brain. It is an extremely fast spreading cancer….quite often by the time it is found it is often too late. Seriously. I hope to eventually advocate so that more receptionists understand how serious IBC can be.
On another note…..I’m a birth junkie. It has been my passion since my first daughter was born. So you might hear me gab a bit about that here. But mostly I think I’ll just share my spiritual reflections through this dark journey and how I’m growing and healing, emotionally and physically. It will be good accountability for me and how God is changing me and moving me and deepening my faith in Him.
Thanks to all who read and travel this road with me. I just feel God walking ahead of us clearing the path.
