Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Wow, over 17,000 hits on my site! wow! What a fantastic compliment…thank you to everyone who takes time to



stop by and read it:)

Tonight was a good night. It really made feel that my blog was worthy and a great thing I’m doing. John had an awards banquet for the hospital. He wanted me to go with him, and I was so happy I felt good and could go!

I had such great feedback. All night I had people come up to me and say they follow my blog. Also they thought I was doing an amazing thing, and how proud they were of me for putting myself out there. Some of them I knew…some I sort of knew…and some



I didn’t know at all. But… it felt AMAZING!

Just little ol’ me with a little ol’ website has come so far….and I am



proud of myself:) These were my husbands peers and co-workers and they were complimenting me. It felt good:) I really am trying to tell my story the best way I know how…but also



promote womens health and do good things. It’s pretty empowering to change another persons life….even if it is in the tiniest way.

Overall it was a good night. Just spending time with my husband was reward enough, but the rest was the cherry on top:)

And…. lots of people thought I had my own hair and I wasn’t wearing a wig.



Many were actually really shocked and surprised that I was bald under my hair:)

Oh and the countdown till my last chemo continues! Yeah:)
