The Diagnosis

Flowers from Mom_2

On Monday, July 3rd, the day before my 8th wedding anniversary, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The devastating blow left me speechless. I didn’t have my husband beside me, nor did I ask friends or family to join me at the doctor’s office on this fateful day. Although my gut feeling was right, I didn’t think I needed anyone by my side until minutes later when the flood gates opened. I cried walking out of the hospital doors, I cried sitting in the car calling my mother, husband and friends. I cried the entire car ride home. And finally, I cried as I fell into my husband’s arms when I arrived at home.

There’s nothing that can prepare a person for the start of this journey. But the love and support I have seen over the last several weeks has been astounding. It’s truly amazing to see and feel how many people love you and want to help you.

  1. Nicole, We don’t know each other but when I see a notice like this one, I feel that I must say a prayer for you. One never truly knows how something like this may turn out, but for myself I choose the positive route and know that God is love, so in the meantime I pray for your strength and that you will find peace in prayer, study and in love.

  2. I have been very behind reading my blog due to life. Reading this I am stopped short. I am sending you love and support and I do hope your journey will be as smooth as possible. 💜💜💜🌹🌹🌹🌹
