My journey

40 years old and have 3 beautiful boys (12,9, and 11 months!!!) and a wonderful, supportive husband of 17 years! Lost my Dad to Pancreatic cancer last year. ( Still hurts!) Both his sisters and 2 of their daughters diagnosed with breast Cancer (lost 1 to the cancer), and 1 of their sons lost to Prostrate cancer.

The hardest part of my journey

The KNOWING!

If I could do it over again

So far, no...hard to have the knowledge, but glad I can be proactive.

My participation with FORCE

Knowing that there are others out there that are 'Facing our Risk'. Sometimes, I tell people of my upcoming surgery and they do NOT get it. Here, we ALL get it!

Other thoughts

Please contact me if I can be of any help to you!
