Met with Radiation Doctor

Today I met with the Radiation Doctor which helped me understand the type of cancer that I have and why I need to have Radiation. Statically if I chose not to have Radiation I might have a 60% Chance of it reoccurring. By having Radiation I lower my chances to 10%... This is going to zap any cancer cells "hanging out" in the tissue that might have been left behind~ I did however have a Genetic Test to see if this is something that I was genetically predisposed with. If the genetic test comes back positive I have other decisions to make regarding my female stuff and might have to say goodbye to the ole female organs. The doctor said that if the genetic test is positive I have a chance of cancer going to the uterus or ovaries so this will be a sit and wait for a few weeks to see what it is all about. This information got me a little down thinking "could I have other issues to deal with?" I was hoping for an end. But I'm not going to dwell on this for now I have only 1 more treatment and I need to FOCUS on the end of this process!

The Radiation doctor would like for me to have treatments for 6 1/2 weeks everyday! That means Monday- Friday 30 days total! I do believe I can handle this any day over chemo treatment (which is this Friday I'm already getting sick just thinking about it)

Any ways the Journey continues but at least I'm not going to be sick just tired which I'm already use to so I wont know the difference...

Thats it for now... Until Friday... Love to you all!

My Friends...

In the last few days I have been so emotional... Knowing why, I just kept telling myself " suck it up" this will pass... I had been so sick that I just wanted to die! Seriously I thought to myself "I can not do this anymore".

I had so many friends this week contact me that it was overwhelming... Some I hadn't spoken with for 20 years and others were my regulars just checking in on me!

EACH one of you will never know how much it helped me!

I had never been this low before but by the end of the week I was filled with so much happiness that I was just grateful for life and saw how important it is care for others....

How is it that after 20 years I have friends that care enough to let me know I'm in there thoughts and prayers? People have amazed me in ways that I can't explain~ I'm in amazement by the old friendships that have reconnected with me at this point in my life... Simple phone calls, Beautiful cards, Lovely emails have made my life never the same again... I am humbled by this... Thank you Friends you will be blessed for blessing me~

A message from Kimberly Wright
This year, hundreds of thousands of people will hear the words "You have cancer", and there's a good chance that some of them will be people we know and love. We have all been touched by cancer in some way ... and we all have the power to make a difference. That's why I have chosen to fight back right here in my own community by participating in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life®.
I want to invite you to join me in the fight against cancer by making a donation in support of my efforts. Further down in this message is a link to my personal Relay For Life® web page where you can make an online contribution. You can make a one time gift or increase your impact by donating monthly. Every amount, no matter how small, makes a difference and provides hope.
Relay For Life® brings more than 3.5 million people from across the country together each year to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Thank you in advance for your support. Together, we will celebrate, remember, and fight back.

I See The Light!

As sick as I feel today and knowing that it doesn't get any better for at least a week 1/2 I laid in the recliner during treatment saying to myself "only one more time!" Each time I get a treatment I ask myself can I do this again? I guess you just do it no matter what! My friend gave me 6 pink bracelet's to add 1 each time I finish a round of Chemo! I have 5 on today and only have 1 more to add! When I looked in the beautiful soft box that laid 1 more bracelet I could not believe it! I am almost done! How did I do it? Well I know how... It is because of my support system... It is amazing how people care. In my darkest lows I feel so overwhelmed but knowing I have people to help me is so comforting...I have been blessed with meals, people watching my children so I can rest. This has made the chemo treatment process a lot easier... I could not get through this Challenge with out the help, calls, letters, emails...I see the light! My life has been spared! I am grateful for that. I hope and pray that I will remember this and always live each day happier and fuller. All my love...
