My story about inflammatory breast cancer came out in the West Virginia Intelligencer today while I was at chemo. It is AWESOME, and I am so grateful to the reporter, Betsy Bethel, for interviewing me and writing this story — and my Aunt Linda for making the initial call to help set this up! Thank you both!
P.S. I’m off to see the surgeon later today to discuss my upcoming masectomy. I don’t know whether it’s fear of the unknown, the decision whether to have a single or double masectomy, anxiety about her assessment of my progess in treatment (improving, but still inoperable, said my medical oncologist today) or the steroids that they gave me at chemo this morning, but I am nervous as all get out. Prayers for calmness (SERENITY NOW!) and optimism would be appreciated.
