    Mom's got breast cancer

    Hey all, I know I'm new here and all, but I know a couple of you, and the more the better on thoughts and prayers...

    My Momma bear got diagnosed with breast cancer yesterday. So, if you could keep her in your thoughts I'd appreciate it. She's a trooper. She'll be 79 in August and totally healthy up til now. It was always my Dad who had the bad health and passed away four years ago. She always took care of him.

    She's ready for any treatment route they want to go. She's not too fond of going bald tho. She just wants to be able to bowl lol. I told her I'd get matching tattoos with her, but I wasn't up to shaving my head either lol.

    Anyway, I like to deal with crap like this with laughter FYI.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Thanks everyone!

    Update, she's decided to go with a mastectomy with no reconstruction. Hopefully no radiation or chemo will be needed.

    May the surgery get rid of the cancer for good, and may she experience a quick and full recovery.

    The best advice I can give is don't let the doctors make her decisions for her. She's still in control of her life. Last year, my father-in-law let the doctors talk him into chemo-therapy, and it was the leading cause of the breakdown of his physical resistance and led to his death. Your mom will be on my prayers, as will you.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    She's made it perfectly clear that she's in control, lol. She wanted the quickest thing so she could get back to bowling!!

    Seriously tho, the doctors have been great and very informative with us. I've agreed with mom's decision for mastectomy with no reconstruction after.

    Oh, a friend of mine created a page on FB to help support my mom during this journey if anyone wants to tag along. It's F - cancer / Team Williams. How it started....I went to Rolling Thunder then had to go to work. My friends stayed out having fun and I was jealous lol. I sent them a pic when I was at work of the peace sign and not thrilled I was working. Well they sent ones back. Then my mom got involved and it made her smile the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer, so obviously the meaning changed. So, a good friend wanted to do something with this peace sign frenzy that was going on with my FB. I know, kind of silly, but so is my mom, and I love her.
