• “It’s Gone!”

    March 2, 2020 by

    I heard the words, “it’s gone” back in mid-February. Praise the Lord! I am forever grateful to my incredible medical team, gifted surgeon, Dr. Lowery and talented oncologist, Dr. Moore. I’m grateful to my family, friends, and co-workers who have all been super supportive and encouraging these last six months. I will continue to be… Read more

  • Faces of a Warrior

    January 25, 2020 by

    Every warrior’s greatest fear is failure, but the greatest pain is regret. Of course you think of failure when faced with adversity, but I decided in the beginning I was a warrior and I didn’t want to have any regrets. And that meant doing what I was instructed to do with the utmost trust in… Read more

  • Here’s to a GREAT 2020!

    January 3, 2020 by

    This is a sweet photo of me and my dad on Christmas Day that my sister snapped. I had no idea that she had taken the photo until she randomly sent it to me a few days later. I had pulled off my hat and laughed that my dad and I could be twins! Yes,… Read more

    I haven’t posted in awhile so this is a catch up! My surgical pathology results came back negative for any viable malignancy and I was released to return to work on this past Monday! Thank goodness too, because I was starting to be bored out of my mind! I had a great week at work… Read more

  • Just saying “hi”

    November 26, 2019 by

    As many of you know, I had surgery last Monday to remove any residual cancer that was remaining. Surgery did go as planned. Actually, better than planned.

  • Wigs, Hats, & Eyelashes

    November 3, 2019 by

    Early on, as in the first weekend after I was diagnosed, my awesome sister Megan and one of my besties Telina went with me wig shopping. Believe it or not, there are not a lot of wig shops in Indiana. I stumbled along a pretty fantastic one in Greenwood, Wigs We Care. They had over… Read more

    October 28, 2019 by

    I can’t imagine going through this journey without friends.

I know I am on countless prayer lists and on many hearts and minds. This gives… Read more

  • Ovarian Cancer

    September 13, 2019 by

    Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken. — Oscar Wilde. What is ovarian cancer and how do you get it without ovaries? There’s a lot of information out there on the web as I found out early on. Some of it more reliable than others. After a lot of scary information, I decided to quit… Read more
