Cancer For Christmas

My mom called my husband and sons & I to her house today to announce that she has breast cancer.

She will be having a mastectomy on 12/15 and will hopefully not need to have chemo or radiation.

As an only child it's time for me to step up and take care of my parent. I'm scared as hell.

All prayers and good wishes are appreciated.

I am thinking positively! No radiation and no chemo would be GREAT! Must've caught it pretty early which is always a good thing right? *HUGS*

No time of the year is a good time to hear that news... but I know around the holidays, the time where you are planning on gumdrops & joy, it probably is an even harder kick in the gut.

Stay strong for her... & for you! Prayers for her, for you, for the whole family! Please let us know how the mastecomy goes...
