Well today is Monday, and one day closer to chemo Wednesday. I am getting scared, but I’m ready to put another one behind me and just get it over with. I just keep repeating “just 6 more, just 6 more, just 6 more, ” After this one, I should have 6 more and then I pray I’m done. I wish I could fast forward time
Now, on a brighter note! (John pay attention) I was contacted by the Editor of The Rolla Daily News. Her name is Lynn and she is very sweet. She approached me and asked if I would do a big article for the paper. It will be a “photo journal/day in the life of” sort of a thing. I was nervous at first, but then I thought if I put myself out there, maybe just maybe some young girl will see my face and make sure she too does her monthly self exams.
See cancer is a funny thing… it doesn’t care about your age or your race…it doesn’t care who you are. I’m a good example. Who am I? Just some mid western mom living in a small town raising a family. Nothing special… nothing different. I’m just like other people, and I hope this article portrays that. The whole “it can happen to you too,” sort of applies here.
So, I’m nervous. I want to make sure it’s perfect (and I don’t just mean my hair;) I want good info that women can use if they are under/uninsured and where to turn to if they find a lump. The one thing you don’t want to do is wait. Most cancers don’t allow that.
It’ll portray how just a regular mom with kids and a husband deal with
life + cancer. So, long story short a lovely lady will follow me all around on chemo day and see what all this fun is about lol. and at the end of the day hopefully she learns a few things about me and makes sure she does her self exams every month.
On a totally separate note I want to make a shout out to my brother Curtis. He lives in IL and I can’t see him often and miss him terribly. I know this journey would be easier if he was closer. So this is just a shout out to say Love You Curt. Proud of you and miss you. peace
