Cancer is a word, not a sentence.
Hi! My name is Jenny. I have been married to my best friend for 33 years, I have two wonderful children and on June 30, 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I am determined to get well and I know that with the strength my Lord provides and the love and support of my family and friends, that will happen. The road to healing is a difficult one… however I strive to be thankful for the blessings I have, to find joy in every day and maybe in some small way be a blessing to those I come in contact with. The support and encouragement that I find on this blog makes my heart smile and helps me to realize that I am not alone. All of you are so much appreciated and help me more than you will ever know. So thanks for stopping by....if you would like please leave a comment after my post....I would love to hear from you.

My mom has been out of surgery and is recovering in the comforts of our home after a successful surgery. She is doing well, happy to be home with her family.
The procedure lasted about two hours early this afternoon. Jenny's surgeon and hospital staff did an amazing job both inside and outside of the operating room.
I thank God today for a successful surgery and watching over my mom, and everyone's friend in Jenny.
I want to say that I am so proud of you mom, we all are, for your incredible courage and fight against breast cancer.
Our entire family thanks everyone for their continued thoughts and prayers.

Today marks a huge milestone in my mom's (Jenny's) battle with breast cancer. Later today at approximately 1:00PM PST, my mom will undergo a mastectomy surgery of her left breast to remove a tumor of about a centimeter in diameter, as well as at least two of her underarm lymph nodes that have been affected by cancer.
After twenty-four weeks of two responsive chemotherapy treatments, we are thankful that with the guidance of the Lord, the treatments Jenny received shrunk the tumor from the original size of nearly 6 centimeters to less than 1 centimeter.
My mom has worked and fought so hard both physically and mentally for nearly a year to date leading up to this one procedure. I couldn't be more proud of her as her son.
My mom is in good spirits, and is ready to take this huge step in her battle against cancer. Our entire family asks for your continued thoughts and prayers today as we pray that her surgery is successful and the cancerous tumor is completely removed from her body.
Later today I will write an update about the status of Jenny and how the surgery went.
