    It was 8 years ago today (15Feb2013) that I was getting ready to go to the hospital to have my mastectomy and lymph node dissection. That seems so long ago but very real in my mind. My breast patient navigator had been invited by my surgeon to attend my surgery. She met me in the preop area and we shared a good talk. The last thing I recall …

    In 1991, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma in my thymus that had spread to my left lung. After surgery and chemo, Dr. Senecal suggested I have a bone marrow transplant. It was a miracle for me. This month I am celebrating my 28 year Anniversary of being free from lymphoma. Thank you Dr. Senecal! You are the best doctor ever.

    In November 2015 I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Triple Positive, Invasive Ductal Metastatic Breast Cancer. I had a LOT of bone involvement, tumors in my liver and LOTS of lymph nodes. My PET scan looked like a Christmas Tree. I started my treatments with 10 rounds of radiation to a bone in my pelvis and a few vertebrae they were afraid would …

    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.
