I have been debating how, when, or if I should share this news on my blog. I decided it was better that you hear from me rather than someone else. People have been known to twist the details.

My mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The official diagnosis was March 26 and she had a double mastectomy last Thursday. It is invasive lobular breast cancer that is at least stage 2. She will need chemo and radiation. Chemo will start in about a month and radiation will come after that. She is doing really well after surgery and is in high spirits.

I wish it were better news, but I thought everyone should know what is going on.
