Welcome & Thank You for Visiting

On August 16th, 2011, three days before her 44th birthday, Connie was diagnosed with "Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma, Grade 3". In other words, breast cancer.

Battling cancer, no matter what form, is a difficult and frightening time for both those with the disease and their loved ones. Having strong moral support is important for everyone involved.

As the reality sinks in and we adjust to the new landscape, we realize we can't do this alone. We're reaching out to ask you for your moral support as Connie prepares to do battle with breast cancer.

Through this blog, we'll post updates on Connie's progress and offer a place for you to send words of encouragement and messages of support.

The burden of added medical expenses on top of day-to-day living expenses is mountainous. As a family, we're doing everything we can, but still it isn't enough. We're calling all angels who might consider donating to a fund for Connie and her family to relieve some of the stress so that Connie can concentrate on her recovery and get back to doing what she does best as loving mother, partner, sister, caregiver and friend.

Hi Everyone!

This is the first of many posts you'll receive regarding my sister Connie's fight with breast cancer. Her surgery on Tuesday, August 23 was a lumpectomy and went well. The surgeon removed three affected lymph nodes. From what we've heard they were found to be smaller that originally suspected. This is good news. Connie should get the results perhaps tomorrow or next Tuesday when she goes in for her follow-up appt. Despite some lingering pain and stiffness, she is doing well, getting up and around. Thanks for your continued prayers and well wishes. Through this site Connie will be able to see your comments directly instead of word of mouth through me. I imagine she's getting tired of hearing from only me. :-)
