September 27, 2010 is a day that will live in infamy–in my life, at least. On that day I was officially diagnosed with breast cancer. Invasive lobular carcinoma is the name of the beast I fight. Not a fight I would have chosen, but the one I have been given. I am not a courageous person. Kiddie rollercoasters are too fast for me, and I get scared looking down from high places. But I have a God who can sustain me, and this blog will be a journal of my spiritual journey through cancer. While I may talk about treatment and the physical effects, the focus will be on the spiritual. I will try to be as honest as I can; I know there is bound to be plenty of rain, but I am also trusting that the sun will shine through the clouds and bring the brightness of an occasional rainbow.

Then it occurred to me that perhaps by keeping a blog journal of my experiences, I could provide encouragement and hope to others who find themselves on a similar journey. Please feel free to join me here and share what you have learned through the physical, emotional, and spiritual experience that is called cancer.
