Cancer

I had breast cancer, diagnosed in 2002 at Thanksgiving time, then a lumpectomy in Jan., 2003. This was followed by radiation. Then 5 years of Tamoxifen. I finished my Tamoxifen May 23, 2008 & was extremely happy to be done with it and be cancer free.

One of the potential side effects of Tamoxifen is endometrial cancer (uterine cancer), which happens rarely..........but is a possibility. I was aware of this possibility when I took it, but compared the pluses with the minuses.............and decided that taking it was a better option.

Until now.

I have just been diagnosed with endometrial cancer. I will be seeing a specialist this week & will follow that with major surgery sometime in September (hopefully no further out than Sept.). The surgery will be in Denver.

So I ask for your prayers during this time. I'll keep you updated here and continue to update the farm information also!!
