Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has been sending up love, prayers, and support on my behalf. If any of you out there have been following, I had a scare not too long ago when my very first mammogram revealed a mass in my left breast. Upon further investigation, it was determined to be very suspicious and I had a biopsy. The samples taken showed noncancerous tissue, but my doctor wasn’t satisfied by that, so I saw a specialist. I am currently recovering from a lumpectomy. The official pathology results came in yesterday and I DO NOT HAVE CANCER.
I have received unbelievable support from fans, friends, and family. It is overwhelming, in fact. All of the comments, prayers, support, positive energy, and interaction I’ve received during this ordeal has been so encouraging. So, this blog is to shout out a THANK YOU to everyone who has contacted me.
The nightmare is over for me, but somewhere out there the nightmare is just beginning for someone else. After this horrifying experience I intend to donate to breast cancer research. In fact I’d like to have fund raisers for not only breast cancer research, but diabetes, ADHD, and Wounded Warrior Project. Hopefully, my books will become popular enough that I can host these fund raisers each year and give a significant amount to such worthy charities.
If it weren’t for the great advances in technology, who knows how my situation might have turned out? For those that have battled cancer and kicked its ass, my hat goes off to you. For those who have been left behind as a casualty of such a terrible disease, I want to tell you how much I admire your courage. A very good friend of mine lost her battle with breast cancer and the moment I was told about my situation, hers came to my mind.
I didn’t fully understood the terror or appreciate such a situation. Thankfully, I can embrace the feeling of victory. Still my thoughts gravitate to those who are currently fighting for their lives. I offer you positive energy and light. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
