Update on my sister

Hi ladies. A number of you have asked lately about how my sister is doing, and I wanted to wait to post something until I had all of the answers. She did have a successful lumpectomy a few weeks back, followed with meetings with Oncology at the Mayo Clinic, an in depth disection of her tumor to help decide her risk for reoccurance, and then finally a decision to do chemotherapy. We do have quite a high risk running in our family, my mother is a breast cancer survivor, her sister died of what started as breast cancer, and her mother died of uterine cancer. Don't worry, I'm already prepared for my own road.
Anyway, chemotherapy will begin tomorrow 8-16-07 at 1pm, so send out some positive juju her direction tomorrow. It's been a very trying month on everyone, and the next 12 weeks will bring a lot of trials, the toughest being the loss of her hair, but hopefully those 12 weeks give her the rest of her life back.
I love her very much, and just want her to be well again. I can't thank you all enough for all the great cards you sent her when she was first diagnosed. If you feel up to sending some again the cheer her up in the next 3 months, here is her address again:
Karen Jeanson
215 21st St. SE
Rochester, MN 55904

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Kat
