Since March 2019, my loving friends, you’ve prayed, danced, fallen to your knees, helped us, looked for help, cooked meals, picked up meds or groceries, bought shirts, made bracelets, hugged, cried. Laughed. Sent positive vibes. Kept us your thoughts & hearts. We are so grateful,
You’ve sorted shirts, made posters, given rides, offered beds. You’ve arranged cow, horse, and dog petting.
You’ve helped my son by being there, taking him places, or letting him hang out. I am forever grateful.
You’ve answered the late night calls.
Deciphered my illegible texts.
You’ve heard the screams, sobs, panic, and silence. You’ve hit every emoji Facebook has to offer. You’ve followed along, shared posts, sent links, looked for help, given directions, suggestions.
You’ve donated your hard earned money, time, friendship and love.
THANK YOU is not big enough.
GRATEFUL is am understatement.
We simply could not do this without support of EACH any EVERY ONE of you.
Through the multiple hospitalizations, close calls, bad news, car accidents, weekly travel to and from Houston Texas so my beautiful daughter could participate in a trial to save everyone after her diagnosed with TNBC.
Last week when we arrived for our weekly chemo on Wednesday, they told us we had to stay. A lot of tests everyday, all day.
Today we “OFFICIALLY” received the news: Dr Twong informed us that Samantha has had a reduction in the tumor they have been tracking. The tumor that grew on A&C chemo [ the red devil]. The invasive, aggressive, metaplastic cancer invading her body has reduced in size.
There could not be better news or better timing.
Yes we still have a very long road ahead, but now there is a a clearly defined road. A brightly lit road that she is paving for everyone after her.
We have three new types of doctors to meet and consult with: Surgical, Radiation, and Plastics. We are so grateful.
This Wednesday she will receive her chemo in Texas and by Thursday we’ll be making our way back to Mississippi. Next Tuesday we’ll return to Texas.
Then we won’t return until a couple days before surgery – probably the first part of October to complete pre-op testing and surgery.
That’s IF all goes well.
In mid to late November, she will start daily radiation at home, on the Mississippi gulf coast.
So my loving friends, you wonderful people. No matter what. Every single second was worth it and we could not have done it without you.
Stay with us.
There’s a lot of, “if this goes this way” type tests and procedures. Please keep doing exactly what you’ve been doing; we still desperately need you. I wanted you to know that you’ve made a major difference in our lives and the lives of every family who hears the diagnosis of Triple Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer.
I am so happy to hear your good news. I will keep cheering for your daughter.
