My wife just got diagnosed with breast cancer. As i’m sure you can guess its very scary. We have attacked the situation head on. The doctors all say that its 95% curable because its small and we caught it early. The type is DCIS hers is very small and still contained within the milk ducts (as far as they can tell). Debbi and I have both decided that she shouldn’t have to deal with the stress of every year going back for a mammogram and wondering if its going to come back, so the plan is double mastectomy. Some say this is drastic measures, but in our case Debbi is a worry wart and she admits this freely. She shouldn’t have to be scared every year whether its going to be ok or not. With this decision she will not need any chemo or radiation as long as the cancer hasn’t spread anywhere else, (they will know this on Friday when they do the surgery) So I’m begging all of you out there to send us your positive thoughts and prayers. My wife is young (46) and has a full life ahead of her, we want her here to share all there is out there.
Now more begging for help, I feel bad having to ask for help but i don’t want any hand outs. We are putting all the things we have made up on our web site, etsy, and ebay over the next couple of weeks. Debbi is a massage therapist and works for herself so when she isn’t working she isn’t making any money, but yet the bills don’t stop coming. The insurance we have is for small business’s and its not really the best. She will be out of work after the surgery for 2 to 5 weeks (dr says realistically around 3 weeks she will be able to do minor work). So if you know anyone looking for some nice glass or wood art (maybe xmas presents) please check out our sites and let your friends now. Most of all send your positive thoughts and prayers our way.
