When I tell people I have been diagnosed with cancer, they are shocked. I’m a healthy weight. I eat nutritious food. I get plenty of exercise through gardening, walking dogs, and taking care of my family of four.
It all started New Years Eve 2010. Phone rang at 4 o’clock and the doctor’s first comment, “I don’t have very good news for you.” This phone call started my journey into the unknown.
The beginning of 2011 I underwent surgery to remove the melanoma site on my upper left thigh. Surgery was a success; 5 sentinel lymph nodes removed. I thought I dodged the bullet.
November 2011 a small bump appeared within 8″ of the original site. CT testing indicated it was back. Did it leave or did it never go away?
I want to share my journey with you, as you are a very important part of my life. I have an awesome support team, and I just know I will get through this in time.
