I am an ACM and CMA nominated country artist. I’m an award-winning guitarist. And now, I’m a statistic; a woman who is battling breast cancer. I never thought I’d be in the “1 in every 8 women” who will get breast cancer stat, but I am. I was diagnosed with “Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma” (Lymph node positive) on August 28th 2017.
I am starting a blog to document my Journey to Healing. This blog is not about me being brave. I’m choosing to share my journey openly in hopes of helping others. Some women choose to go through this privately, some announce they have breast cancer, but they don’t give details of their cancer and treatment. I never realized how many types of breast cancer there are and the kinds of treatments available for each one. Please feel free to comment on my blog posts. I gladly welcome any helpful tips from fellow warriors, as well as encouragement and prayers. I hope I can offer the same to those who need it.
